Photography is a very wide art. There are a lot of types of photography. We will discuss some of the commonly known categories of photography: 

Photojournalism 

This type of photography records only the facts. Embellishment or manipulation of images is not permitted in this type of photography. Although many amateurs jump into this field, only highly professional and experienced photographers can successfully record the original emotions. 

Macro-photography 

It is the field of photography in which images are captured at a very close range. The subjects of this kind of photography comprise things like flowers, insects, texture of a woven cloth etc. The close-up photography reveals some very exciting aspects. 

Documentary Photography

This photography tells stories with the help of photographs. It is different from the photojournalism. Photojournalism records a particular scene or instance while documentary photography captures snapshots of a social or political period for the purpose of historical documentation. The similarity between these two types of photography is that both seek to reveal the facts without alteration or manipulation of the photograph. 

Aerial Photography

In this type of photography, images are captured from the air. Aero planes, parachutes, balloons, ultra lights and remote controlled aircraft are used to take photos from the air. These photos may be used for military purposes, to capture birds or weather on film, or for surveying or construction. 

Microphotography 

This type of photography captures the photos of extremely small subjects. Very specialized cameras and microscopes are used for this purpose. It is widely used in the disciplines like medicine, astronomy and biology.

Portrait Photography 

One of the oldest types of photography is portrait photography. The purpose is to record the personality of the subject. The goal is same whether the subject is a pet or a family member or anything else. 

Underwater photography

Snorkelers and scuba divers usually take up this type of photography. This is a less common kind of photography due to very high costs. High costs are due to the fact that scuba diving and underwater photography equipment are very expensive. Another problem that makes this photography less common is that taking images underwater is complicated because the scuba goggles are magnified and they distort the vision of the photographer. 

Wedding Photography

It is a blend of several kinds of photography. The wedding photographer will need skills of documentary photography, glamour photography, and portrait photography.
