    What do you like to shoot that really makes you enjoy photography? Landscape? People? Cars?

    I mentioned this in the thread about the Louve (sp?). I love pics in a museum. The lighting is always dramatic and dim. I love taking portrait shots of stuff with my primes. It's really fun to me.

    i suck at that. of course i havent tried it since getting my dslr.

    i remember doing it with my canon s5. i'm like oooh sweet aquarium mode! i'd have to stand at about a 1 degree angle off the glass so it wouldn't fuck up the pic on the glass

    For some reason, I like shooting wild life even if what I shoot isn't awesome (ducks at the pond, squirrels, birds)

    I prefer people, cityscape, landscape in that order. I don't like product shots.

    I once saw a photo of my grandfather and in the background was a billboard saying the Dionne Quintuplets were coming to town. Since seeing that photo, my focus has been to capture change. If I find out that a building is coming down (very common in Chicago) then I am there to get a photo of that street. I like to get photos of my kids and in the background is a Mt. Dew can with the old logo or the Coke Zero can when they used to be white. I like knowing that I have photos of Michigan football players going back to Elvis and Desmond Howard. I have photos from years of Auto Shows so I can compare the concept cars to what made it to the showroom. I'd love to take a landscape photo, but only if there is a rusted old 70s car in the background.

    I don't know what style of photography that is, but that's what I like.

    anything, really - depends on what mood I'm in.

    Landscapes for personal stuff, portraits / editorial stuff for $$$

    I like photographing people if it's candid (basically street photography). I enjoy the spontaneous expressions/actions. But being invisible enough for street photography without looking like a creep is kinda hard. :(

    Landscapes and wildlife. I tried to do people but I can't stand trying to figure out how to pose them.

    Up-skirt.

    like when you skirt up the mountain while hiking and always shoot up towards the top.
