About This Quiz

Photography is one of the most popular forms of art out there, and while it seems easy to learn, it has many rules one must follow. These rules, like the rule of thirds, allows photographers to stand out from one another. And like other forms of art, there are famous and iconic people who set trends and movements within their niche. You've got Pablo Picasso in the painting world, Coco Chanel in the fashion world, but what about in the world of photography?

First off, there are different styles of photography, and each style has its famous photographers. For example, Frans Lanting became well-known for his wildlife photography, capturing elephants, lions and cheetahs in their natural habitats. He also made a name for himself in National Geographic magazine. Now, if you're interested in candid photography, you might learn a thing or two from Henri Cartier-Bresson. He was a French photographer who captured spontaneous moments in everyday life. Whether it was a businessman walking on a street or a lady sitting on a park bench, Cartier-Bresson knew how to turn dull moments into creative works of art.
