    As of late I've had difficulty getting myself out there to shoot more, maybe due to winter. I don't have the urge to shoot because I guess i haven't found something I really enjoy shooting. I had a fantastic time with my 70-200 at my nephews football game. Mostly when I've had fun shooting it was situational events that have been rare.

    I know many of you do this professionally but what types of shooting does everyone really fucking enjoy and not enjoy? Architecture, Nature, Landscapes, Portrait. What does OT really enjoy shooting?

    yet you still need a 200mm prime to get it to fill the frame

    Welp, there goes this thread.

    I like to shoot events as well. Parties, races, gatherings. Hard to find this type of stuff in the winter. I've tried macro and product photography but it's not for me. The subjects feel boring.

    So there. No real input beyond 'i feel your pain'

    Cars and sports. I posted in another thread that I like to take photos that are special to that date and time. It may not mean a lot now, but it will be cool to see a photo 10-20 years from now with a half-built Trump Tower in the background or a picture of my 5 year-old standing next to the Bluesmobile at the Auto Show.

    i shoot anything and everything that catches my eye. my camera is always with me.

    however, as of late, i have been trying more and more to eliminate people from my photos and focus more on natural and urban landscapes, usually with a wide angle filter.

    for me, if i have to actually think of things to photograph, i would probably never shoot anything.

    this is a really cool shot


    My passion is shooting sports. i love it. The fast pace the emotion that people get when watching it.

    but my money maker is events and people.
