The Foodies

The foodies have a passion for... well, food. Foodies unleash their inner culinary artist with their stunning photography of food. They indulge you, have you watering at the mouth. Foodies have an eye for food and its texture and definitely know how to set it up to hypnotize their audience. If this is your type of photography, you'll inspire your audience to try something they probably have never tried before. It's worked on me.

The Quality Blogger

Quality photos is something that you may have heard of if you have ever been on Tumblr. Quality photographers have a camera with them at all times, where it be your regular DSLR or your phone. Quality photographers photograph anything...ANYTHING that catches their eye. Anything that they know can make a quality blog. That can be them holding a bag chips, cereal, phone cases, lip glosses, quality photographers know how to make it work by putting the subject in clear focus. It can be as small as a little knick-knack's or you can go bigger and bolder. Quality photos have inspired me to do the same. If your one to journal your day and want to snap something interesting, quality photography is the way. It's simple, creative, and actually really fun.

The Polaroid Enthusiast

Maybe instead of digital photography your a little bit more old school and want to try the vintage route instead. Polaroids are one of the best ways to get that vintage look. With polaroids, you'll train yourself to have the right eye for photographs...why? Because you have nothing to use but the natural light to get the perfect look for your photo. Now polaroids are a trial and error...I know from experience. You'll waste a couple of bucks on film, but once you get it, you'll be snapping away like a pro.

The Wanderluster

Wanderlusters love photographing the places they've been. Rather than a selfie, they took photos of their surroundings. It can be mountains, oceans, forrest, buildings, cafe's. The wander of the location is the subject. Their photos tell their story on where they have been, the culture of that location. If you want to tell wanderlust photography, I'll tell you, you'll inspire people to get up and get out. Sometimes you'll even allow a person to travel to that location by just looking at your photo. Wanderlust photography is another way of saying travel photography, except it has more of your essence in it.
