Amazing how put in other words the light bulb moment comes. I see what you mean. To me, how I shoot is inextricably linked to what I shoot, though. So I guess I'm a chameleon
It is true, that as I have aged I have also changed a bit about how I print, tonality wise. Someone mentioned Ansel Adams in this regard, and I have read that too, that he changed how he printed over the years, at one point bemoaning how dark his prints were once...
