What Kind of Photographer Are You?

What Kind of Photographer Are You?

When choosing the camera that will help you take the best photos, it’s important to choose one that matches the kind of photos you actually take. But what sort of photographer are you? In one way of thinking, there are two types of photographers: artistic and documentary (and as is usually the case, most people overlap somewhat).

You’re an artistic photographer if:

  • You care more about the overall look of a photo than the subject of the picture (Figure B.1).

    Figure B.1. There’s not much of story in this photo—I was just intrigued by the color of the leaf underneath the new-fallen snow. We’re definitely looking at an artistic photograph here.

  • Objects and landscapes fill many of your photos and stand alone as aesthetic representations of your reality.

  • Display and print quality is of the utmost importance. You regularly print and display your best photos.

  • You’re willing to take time to set up the perfect shot, and you do things because they give you photo opportunities.
