This is an example of commercial photography. It shows a slice of meat, garnished in veggies and sauce. The intent of this photo is to appetite you, to make you want to buy this product.

This photo ensensuates warmer colors. This photo is meant to encapsulate a street setting in it’s original setting. I personally like how the shadows cast over different parts of the photo.

This is a example of documentary photography. The photo shows a woman holding a cardboard sign. You can assume that she is protesting, by the words on the sign and the crowd in the backround. This photo intends to capture a moment with real world significance. I personally like the orange light illuminating the back of her hair.

This is an example of landscape photography. This photo features a coast line, with green mountains and a blue sky. The point of landscape photography is to capture nature. This is a beautiful photo of a nature setting. I personally like the white streaks of the waves.

This is an example of surreal photography. The photographer had the model hold a mirror, and it creates the illusion that you can see through her.
