This week on the Prodibi Pixel Magazine, we go a different route than usual and we cover the different types of photography that you can come across as a photographer or a photo enthusiast.

From eye-opening landscape images to awe-inspiring fine art scenes, one point is obvious: the world of photography is incredibly nuanced and photographs come in countless forms.

Whether you shoot with a DSLR camera or a smartphone, it is rare that photographers only touch one single style and exploring different genre is almost a mandatory step in a journey to become a better artist. It is often the best way to develop your knowledge in the area and to gain an insight into what drives your taste for photography.

Technology has also played a key role in increasing the opportunity to experience visually. With new lenses, filters, or devices, you can virtually shoot any types of photography that come to your mind. However, do not think that since you are a great fashion photographer you can master the art of documentary photography, and vice versa, all genres have their particularity and codes that one needs to learn before becoming comfortable.

Understanding the different genres of photography is key for developing our knowledge in the area and also for gaining an insight as to where your photography fits.

Without further ado, check out some of our favorite types of photography to draw inspiration from!
