    Poll..what do you prefer to shoot

    Hi one and all... I've created a poll to test a theory of mine about the Photographic trends and preferences of AP members ..
    Cheers and my name is Steve

    My subjects of interest include seascapes, cityscapes, landscapes, portraiture and still-life.

    Over the years I've shot many other subjects, but I concentrate on the above subjects and rarely shoot anything else.

    We're heading over to Africa in October, so I'll get to photograph wildlife, which will be a new experience. Imaging being twenty feet from a lion that isn't inside a zoo...

    I have/do shoot all of the above, but landscapes are my fave, but it doesn't mean that it is all I shoot.

    I imagine that most people shoot anything and everything, and eventually hone in on particular subject matter.

    Clicked Wildlife, but I do a lot of genre's and want to try some I've not done before.

    Probably needed to be a multi choice poll

    I aim to be a `jack of all trades`.......and yes, fail miserably....but having fun trying . I did vote landscapes as my favorite and doing a bit of travelling o/s gives me lots of scenes that I will never get back to.

    What, no gravy?

    I prefer to shoot anything that lets me when it/they let me! That said, if I could shoot people all day, every day, I'd be one happy camper.

    Trying to pigeon-hole AP members can be a frustrating pastime, Steve. Good luck with that!

    LOL Waz

    the reason I gave only one choice is to try and see if my assumptions about the current membership is correct or not..its early days yet..but thus far its looking like I might be proved right...bit hard though if not all members vote

    my guess is your theory has something to do with comp voting preferences/biases? which is one of the reasons behind the genre comps. all you need to do is look at an open comp to see where members favourite genres are.

    Hmm I picked People but how do you just pick one genre, I love sport, I dig astro / low light photography, physiographs, orbs, burning steel wool, I also really like architectual and complex patterns, I love bright and mixed colours so I think this summer is going to particularly good. I love portraits and baby photos. I love more than anything to take a photo that captures an event a time a mood that has real meaning to someone and allows me just for a second to think wow I did that. If this is about feedback and CC you are going to find that there are some people who are willing to share and to guide. I have had some simple and yet amazing feedback from AP regulars, and I have taken on board their advice and my photos have improved. I guess this is one of the reasons I like photography, every photo I take is slightly different the subject matter changes the techniques I use to take them changes and over a period of time they tell a story how good is that.

    Kind Regards
    Livio

    Could have been multiple choice??? Most of us don't care what we aim at. As long as it looks good.
