This portrait photograph was taken by photographer Annie Leibovitz. In comparison to Yousuf Karsh's portrait photography, there is a clear difference. The modern day versions of portraits have more colour and qualities. For instance, this portrait of the Queen isn't as simplistic. It has big scenery behind the main focus (the person) and shows more than just the person's face. Also, rather than the Queen looking directly into the camera she is looking away in the other direction. This takes away the idea of a portrait showing expression in the eyes.

Photojournalism creates images in order in which tells a news story. As the news is evolving all the time, technology has also evolved greatly. For example, in 1990- when Iraq invaded Kuwait - a picture took 40 minutes to send to a newsroom. Nowadays, sending a picture from any location would take 2 minutes. This shows just how much technology has developed.
Photojournalism is used in newspapers and on websites to show a story through image.
Landscape photography shows different spaces within the world. The subjects in the photos are often strongly defined landforms, weather, and ambient light. For the photographer to capture detail, they use a wide/long shot.
Landscape photography is a form of art.
Macro photography is typically used in nature shots. These shots are mainly of insects and plants where great detail is required (small objects). There is a significant difference between macro and close-up photography; macro shows much finer detail as well as detail that would not usually be seen. For example, the hairs on an insect or the pattern in your eye.
