In telling visual stories about the world, photography is narrating the world. Social communication is one of the defining characteristics of being human, and narrative stories have long been a common and powerful mode for transmitting information. As such, there is much we can learn from the beauty, pain, happiness and sorrow of a photograph.
Event Photography: covers activities such as conferences, seminars, weddings, graduations and fundraiser. It encompasses photographs of the guests before and after the event for announcements, portrait displays, or thank you cards as well as coverage of the reception.
Still Life Photography: is the depiction of inanimate subject matter, most typically a small grouping of objects. Still life photography, more so than other types of photography, such as landscape or portraiture, gives the photographer more leeway in the arrangement of design elements within a composition.
Nature Photography: refers to a wide range of photography taken outdoors and devoted to displaying natural elements such as landscapes,wildlife, plants, and close-ups of natural scenes and textures. Nature photography tends to put a stronger emphasis on the aesthetic value of the photo than other photography genres, such as photojournalism and documentary photography.
Photojournalism is a particular form of journalism that creates images in order to tell a news story. Photojournalism is distinguished from other close branches of photography (i.e., documentary photography,social documentary photography, street photography or celebrity photography) by the qualities of: timeliness, objectivity, and narrative.
