Don't feel confined to documentary or journalistic style images. Follow your artistic vision using the tools you have such as lens choice, lighting, point of view, camera settings and also photo editing software. It's your artistic choice and there is no right or wrong as long as you are honest about how you created the image. Play, have fun and experiment!
