Not sure if this goes here or the photograhic discussion forum so feel free to move it if needed. My question is how have other folks moved into new areas of photography? For the most part all I tend to shoot is nature shots. I do a lot of closeup shots as well as a variety of other types but really all they ever are are nature shots. My problem is I want to learn how to shoot other types of pictures. I want to know how to do candid shots of folks as well as urban/industrial shots but don't even have a clue where to start. With nature shots I can generally look at a scene and have a composition in mind but I find I am completely lost and clueless when it comes to putting people or man-made objects into a picture. I can't reall say how I got familar with nature shots and composing them since its been so long ago (or it could be I have always loved nature) and I just seem to have trouble seeing pictures when there are people or items around. I can look at shots that have been done of people or urban settings and form a good opinion on them but I don't have the slightest clue where to start and shoot some for myself. Being a grad student with limited funds and still shooting film I can't just go fire off a couple hundred shots and sift though them to try and 'find' the process via trial and error. So basically it boils down to are there any suggestions for transitioning to a new 'type' of picture and how to develop an eye for what can be a good composition?
