Leaves and A Word on Specialization in Photography (Two Photographs)

I recently saw an article on diversity in photography, not surprisingly it was actually an argument that specializing in one form of photography is not the easiest way to learn or expand your talents in photography. It’s a point I agree with. Ansel Adams did commercial photography as well as his famous landscapes. Many famous photographers had many private or professional projects that were outside of what they were known for, it helped them learn new techniques and keep their photography fresh. I know that it is easy to find a niche where one is particularly happy e.g. birds, while other types of photography, e.g. macro are less comfortable. It maybe cliché to talk about getting out of your comfort zone but it is a sure way to learn something new. For me the one type of photography that has great interest but with which I have had little experience is portraiture, finding people I can shoot is the first challenge.
