Photographing what you know

Lets say you like the army or you like trees etc. You have probably read a lot about the topic so you can imagine and manifest better pictures. If you sometimes have "photography block" as I like to call it and don't have any ideas, try to shoot topics that you prefer and you might be surprised.
In my case, I like dark,misterious and crime related photos, so I think my best pictures come from this topic. Or even more interesting if you try to combine different topics that don't fit together are not expected to be combined, you can get amazing photos that will sell.
