It's great to be inspired by some of the great and widely acknowledged names in photography. It's also good to try to learn from them.
Then you have to figure out what you want to do with the frames, and the people that you photograph.
What are you trying to achieve?
- Make beautiful portraits?
- Describe human injustice?
- Record an interesting street scene?
Based on that you need to find a way to interact with the people in your photographs, in order to record what you're trying to achieve. Salgado talks to people. Cartier-Bresson did not. Both are successful, and very different.
(And, for the record, in case it matters, I pretty sure that even though Salgado shoots digital, he still makes silver gelatin prints via digital negatives).
