My approach to photography is two-fold and basic: capture the image and process the image. I am particularly fond of a film look, not necessarily grain, but tonal range. For that reason, I equalize all of my images to achieve a uniform distribution of grayscale values. This instantly brings out all the tonal detail in an image, as well as shifting the colors around. I also embrace distorted aspect ratio (squashed images), color shift, noise, over-compression and other visual anomalies, as this more closely represents the memory-image I have in my own mind. I don't over-index on composition because that is not how I see the world. I like images that don't look right.
