Portrait photography is a photography of a person or group of people that displays the expression, personality, and mood of the subject. Like other types of portraiture, the focus of the photograph is usually the person’s face, although the entire body and the background or context may be included.

Urban exploration is the exploration of man-made structures, usually abandoned ruins or not usually seen components of the man-made environment. Photography and historical interest/documentation are heavily featured in the hobby and, although it may sometimes involve trespass into private property, this is not always the case and is of innocent intention.
Long-exposure photography involves using a long-duration shutter speed to sharply capture the stationary elements of images while blurring, smearing, or obscuring the moving elements. The paths of moving light sources become clearly visible.

Photojournalism is a particular form of journalism that creates images in order to tell a news story. It is now usually understood to refer only to still images. It’s a rigid ethical framework which demands that the work is both honest and impartial whilst telling the story in strictly journalistic terms. Photojournalists create pictures that contribute to the news media.
Like a writer, a photojournalist is a reporter but he or she must often make decisions instantly and carry photographic equipment, often while exposed to significant obstacles (e.g., physical danger, weather, crowds).
- Timeliness : the images have meaning in the context of a recently published record of events.
- Objectivity : the situation implied by the images is a fair and accurate representation of the events they depict in both content and tone.
- Narrative : the images combine with other news elements to make facts relatable to the viewer or reader on a cultural level.
