Choosing Your Area In Photography

Like any other kind of discipline, photography has also many areas. That's why you hear terms such as Wedding Photographer, Landscape Photographer, Sports Photographer, and many others.

As a beginner in photography, it's most likely that you are still in your way to find the best area for you. If you are already a professional and is doing photography in the area you chose, you must have selected that because it is your passion and it is where you excel as a photographer.

In choosing your area in photography, these are the basic things that you need to consider. Ask yourself, "what kind of subject do I love to shoot? What area in photography do I excel?" Your experience in photography will eventually answer this question. If you are seeing so many good comments in the photo of the bird you took and posted in Facebook, you might be good in wildlife photography. If you are good in directing models for poses in photography, then you might fit in model photography.

Why do you need to consider choosing you area in photography? Is it not possible to just learn photography and just do everything? Well, it can be but for you to be more focused in one thing, it is better to choose an area. By this you can also make a name for yourself. In this way, in case you are a wedding photographer and there is a couple planning to get married and they need a photographer, they will come to you. Why? Because they know that in your place, you are the one referred by many as a good wedding photographer.

Choosing your area in photography will also let you master your chosen discipline. We all know that repetition leads to mastery. A growing baby can hardly walk. But through constant practice, he can learn to walk. For us adults, walking is not a big deal anymore since we just normally do it everyday. In the same manner, choosing your area in photography will let you master that area by always doing it. If in a year you had a shoot of more than 50 couples then you surely learned a lot of lessons.

By choosing your area in photography, you will also know what kind of camera and accessories will you buy. If you are a wildlife photographer, you will of course need a longer zoom lens. That's because you cannot go near your subject and you need lens that will focus the subject from afar. This case is almost the same if you are also a sport photographer.

Nevertheless, choosing your area in photography, does not necessarily mean that you totally neglect the other areas already. Of course you can always do other areas as you wish. It's only that you tell yourself that this particular area is your "major subject" and the others are "minor ones."

As you can see choosing your area in photography allows you to do a lot of things. So if you're still beginning in photography, just feel free to play around until your camera will tell you what area you are best in. One day you'll soon explore that and you might make it as one source of your living.
