Studio photography is very different from outdoor photography, since a photographer cannot just walk into a studio with his camera and start shooting. There goes a lot of pre-production work in the former style. Outdoor photography is more spontaneous, where in a naturally occurring scene is captured through a camera without manipulating the lighting and other conditions. Whereas studio photography allows the photographer to create a scene and control all the elements of it starting from the lighting to the position of the subject. It is a vast genre which is extensively branched.
