A portrait image will primarily contain the likeness of a person(s) in which the facial expression is predominant but can be extended to include the entire body and the background. The object of the portrait is to capture the person’s personality and mood as the focal point or as a component of moment in time. The image can be posed, candid or environmental. Street photography image is considered environmental.
A black and white work fitting from the very dark grey (black) to the very clear grey (white) is a monochrome work with the various shades of grey. A black and white work toned entirely in a single colour will remain a monochrome work able to stand in the black and white category. On the other hand a black and white work modified by a partial toning or by the addition of one colour becomes a colour work (polychrome) to stand in the colour category.

Nature Photography is restricted to the use of the photographic process to depict all branches of natural history, except anthropology and archaeology. The image can include landscapes, geologic formations, weather phenomena, and extant organisms as the primary subject matter.
