The photography world has many different genres and therefore various areas of expertise. Golf course photography is one of those areas that is closely related to landscape photography, and even if golf is a sport, this type of photography is fairly distant from the usual “sports photography”.

By using the Motion Blur technique, the photographer can create dynamic images of moving subjects, including crowds of people, vehicles, people playing sports, animals.

This technique is a relatively easy technique to use once you have the basics down (Your First Steps as a Photographer).

Street Photography is probably one of the most challenging but at the same time one of the most rewarding genres of photography.

What’s photography without light? Nothing, zero, impossible, simply doesn’t work, nada.

Light is the element that makes photography possible — that’s why it’s so important for photographers to understand this element.

But what is light painting?

Like Double-Exposure, it’s a photographic technique that uses a moving, and most of the times mobile, light source to add light under-illuminated subjects, while taking a long-exposure photograph.
