Photography Technique

Every type of photography requires a separate set of skills and photography equipment (although some overlap). With these Photography Technique Overview guides on photo.net, we look to impart some of these skills to you, whether the subject you're interested in is Macro Photography, Architectural Photography, Portrait Photography, Nature Photography, etc. Each article offers tips on how best to approach the subject, example photographs, and even suggests photography gear to use. As with any creative pursuit, it's important to find your niche, but also important to keep exploring, keep building skills, continue to challenge yourself to learn new techniques. These articles may help you do so.
