Defining my Photographic Style

My lesson this week in my photography class is all about defining my photography style. This is really hard to do because I don't think I have quite "come into" my style, yet. I will always love classic photography, and I gravitate towards photojournalistic photography, but lately I have been drawn to the trendy, contemporary, "urban" style of photography. The only problem is that one day it will go out of style, and we are going to look back at this era of photography and wonder what we were thinking! It's always fun to be trendy though so I took Holland on a little bribery photo shoot in an alley in Spokane. It didn't quite turn out how I wanted it to, but it was fun to try and shoot something different and play around with a different style. So, here is my first attempt at stepping into that "urban-y" photography style. Tell me what you think!
