Published

Photography

Photography as a career has really reached new heights in this era. Which type of the art should I master? That is probably the most challenging decision to make when you are starting your pursuit of photography as a career. When you think of all of the various subjects there are to capture, and all of the different ways to create the image, the field of photography really is dynamic and varied. There is something for everyone in this field, and the types of photography jobs are just as exciting.

 

1. Portrait Photography

Chances are you’ve probably done at least some portrait shots, no matter where you are in your career. But if you spend some time really focusing on this style you can take your portraits from good to great or great to amazing. There are a few tricks to taking stunning portraits, but first and foremost it’s important to have the right gear. There are lots of lens options, but a 50mm lens is a great place to start. A lens with a wide aperture of f1.4 or f1.8 will let you create a creamy, blurred bokeh effect that will make your portrait subject really stand out.

 

2. Fashion Photography

Fashion photography is one of the more glamorous and more difficult to enter jobs. From cover shots of the top fashion magazines to documenting the latest styles and trends on the runway, fashion photographers work in the design districts of New York, Paris, and Milan etc. Runway shoots require an element of documentary photography, while posed shoots on location demand one-on-one work with the model. Fashion shoots are all about teamwork, and they are done by a group of people. Stylists, wardrobe specialists, makeup artists, art directors, and others make up a team that keeps the shoot on track and make the magic happen.

 

3. Landscape Photography

If you’re looking to capture some truly breathtaking shots and level-up your skills without the pressure of a human subject, landscape might be the photography style for you. Landscape is a great genre for getting comfortable shooting raw files and mastering your camera’s manual settings. A tripod can make a world of difference when it comes to landscapes, so make sure you have the right accessories before you head out in search of a great shoot location.

If you love animals, then there is no better job as a photographer. The genre involves a fun mix of studio sessions and outdoor, on-location shoots. With connections to your local pet daycare facilities and dog show circuits, you can build your business fairly quickly.

 

6. Sports Photography

These are also good for advertising purposes, helping to build brands. This genre includes other, more specific photography fields. Here, you need to incorporate portraiture, action and group shots.

 

7. Food Photography

Restaurants, magazines, and food stylists need photos that make the food look so good people want to eat the page. If you master this skill you’ll always be in demand.

Light is crucial to capturing eye-catching food photos, so this a great chance to hone your lighting skills at lighting your photos properly.
