Photographic genres

I currently see myself working with four main genres of photos:

  1. Landscape
  2. Architectural
  3. Portrait
  4. Street

Here I explore what I might need to produce, or could use to improve, my work in these genres.

Landscape

Including the related waterscape/seascape and sky/weather genres.

Film

e.g Fujifilm Velvia 50, Provia 100F, Kodak E100VS

Architectural

Do I need to set up a studio?

Street

I haven't actually done any street photography yet. It looks interesting, but I'm afraid of the reaction some people might have.

Film

e.g Ilford Delta 3200, HP5+ 400, Kodak Tri-X 400

Stock

A pseudo-category of photography. The goal is to produce photos that can be manipulated by clients, so give them as much as possible.

Film

e.g Fujifilm Superia Reala 100, Pro 160S/160C, various slide films
