Growing as a photographer can mean learning alternative skills that have a greater impact on your original interest. I have found portrait photography to not only be exciting and fun, but, the studio work involving creating my own lighting arrangements etc. have benefited my action photography on an unimaginable scale.
Knowing how to take a good portrait gives you a greater understanding of the depth of field, use of backlighting and lighting effects in general, plus, how your camera and lens work together. These skills can then transfer into sports photography, allowing you to develop as a photographer, ultimately taking better pictures over all fields.

I come from an art and design background. Lukas’s tip on portrait photography fully resonates with me as my photography has launched with thanks to those art skills I learned years ago. Changing up your focus then going back can reap huge rewards.
