Yes, I am talking about YOUr creative side which capture different moments and collect it in form of memories, or portfolio. In this article we will make you aware of Selecting Photography Subject: Anything which adheres your interest.

How to Choose Photography Subject ?

You don’t have to consult a professional photographer or become like one to select a Photography subject. You can do that by giving a thought, to things which interests you or simply make you happy. Altogether photography reflects your mood, for instance if you are happy, the photograph clicked will reflect your excitement in it. This is usually good for Portrait Photography covering events, parties, city touring and etcetera.
