One topic or variety?

posted on 6th of january, 2010

Recently I have read some material about stock photography. Some photographers and stock-photography experts say that it is neccessary if a photographer is specilized in one topic. On the contrary, there is a group of photographers who considers a specific style and a high quality the most important and not specialization in a topic.

Before making goals for 2010, I thought a lot about this subject. I love to create images with mystical topics. I have got even a lot of beautiful comments about my mystical images. So in one moment I thought to focuse just on mystical topic. But then I felt a certain sorrow to think not to make photos of nature, food, people in nature etc. So I have decided to continue to upload various topics. Although...

Why not do both?
Jitka, You obviously have a unique style and an excellent niche.
But it doesn't mean that you cannot "let your hair down" and try something for a change.
Outside of stock work, I do thrive to a certain niche , even pushing a certain style that is recognizably mine. You have that too in your works here. It's something not just every one can proudly say they have.
That takes years of hard work or lots of time "seeing with your mind's eye".
That feeling of sorrow to not do nature, food, people,etc.. is just that. Your soul want to be free . Photography is putting your soul into 2 dimensional image, with or without the help of a model.
I say "Do it, BECAUSE YOU CHOOSE TO". And forget about finding someone else to qualify your awesome work.

Hi Jitka!
I agree with others, you have your unique style, and your works are recognizable. Apart from mystical topics, you have great photos of nature and still-life. So I don't think you have to specialize in one field, since you've managed to create unique photos on different topics.
Happy New Year! And wish you a lot of inspiration!

I think you definitely have your own style even in your non mystical images. So I think your images will be great no matter what the subject. Hope you have a great year! Cheers Carol :)
