COMMON TYPES OF SHOTS

portrait

Portrait photography or portraiture is a photograph of a person or group of people that displays the expression, personality, and mood of the subject. Like other types of portraiture, the focus of the photograph is usally the person's face, although the entire body and the background may be included. *Portraits to me are generally any photo with a person posing or of animals* click here for examples

landscape

Landscape photographs typically capture the presence of nature and are often free of man-made obstructions. Landscape photographers usually attempt not only to convey the documentary aspect, but also an appreciation of the scenery that is being photographed.click here for examples

action / sport

Most photographers shoot from spots with the best views, usually as close to the action as possible. It requires framing the images with speed and adjusting camera settings spontaneously to prevent blurring or incorrect exposure.click here for examples

macro

Macro photography is usually of very small objects close-up. In modern photography it refers to a finished photograph of a subject at greater than life size. This type of shot usually requires lenses specifically designed for close-up work. * my examples were taken using a normal lens but are similar to a true macro shot*click here for examples

panorama

A panorama is any wide angle view or representation of a physical space. They consist of multiple images of a view assembled, usually in Photoshop, into a single wide image.click here for examples

long exposure

Long exposure photography involves using a long duration shutter speed to sharply capture the stationary elements of images while blurring, smearing, or obscuring the moving elements. This technique can also be used in a night time setting to produce a near daytime effect in a photo.click here for examples
