With all types of photography, knowing the subject helps you photograph good subjects. If you don’t know anything about surfing, you can’t even judge what is a special moment and a special achievement, for example, in a championship.
The better you know your métier, the more precisely you know when the special moment comes.
I have fallen in love with 360° virtual tours and the possibilities of 360° images. Finally you can show e.g. audience and stage in one photo at the same time. Walk through rooms, walk through distant museums or look around in other countries as if you were there.
My current cameras are Fuji because I love the ease and quality and the wide range of professional lenses.
And my wife? Yes, I found her through photography, too, of course.
