    What is your favourite genre?

    Thought it might be interesting to find out what the spread of photographic genre is across the AP membership. Just select your favourite genre in the poll.

    feel free to post below telling us why you like your particular genre.

    I selected Creatures. I love nature and the beauty of animals (and plants). They are also very natural in front of a camera. I would love to do more portraiture but I got sick of friends and family with false smiles and overall awkwardness in front of the camera. Of course they were never really that happy with the results either, usual stuff, 'your picture made me look fat'...etc.

    Hi fess67, did your vote get saved? I can't see any votes for creatures in the totals at the moment.

    I picked places because it fits so well with some of the other things I like to do (walking along the waterfront, cycling).

    Personally I particularly prefer participating in Places photography. My job gets me outside a lot.

    Ok. So I picked other.... I wish the vote could have multiple choices. Me I love land/seascapes. The diversity of different areas in my region sort of beg for it. But I also love birding and animals. It's such a challenge to get these small, quick and unique creatures on the camera sensor.
    I also like people photography. Just wish I had the balls or confidence that other members have to approach people.

    I selected People, I genuinely like photographing people having said that I also really like night time photography especially in the City where there are so many wonderful reflections and colours. Then I also love waterfalls but this is the trick. All of the really good and acclaimed photographers picked a genre and specialised at that. I'm a little afraid that today we have a wealth of knowledge on the internet and, high grade consumer electronics that give us the opportunity to try all sorts of genre's and capture images. The software we have today allows us to be creative, so the trick is to pick say one or two genre's you really love and go for it.

    Kind Regards
    Livio

    Ok I selected People, as in portrait’s with strobes, cause that’s what I am doing most with family members at the moment as a home J hobbyist. But then prosing through the form I always end up looking at landscape/seascape so multiple choice would have been ideal J

    I picked People, specifically Street Photography. It fits with my love of just getting out and into it.

    For me places just edges out sport.
    I love capturing the essence of a place - be it an abandoned building, rainforest stream, or waves pounding the rocks.
    We've been given a pretty spectacular part of the world to live in for a few short years, and yet we get entangled in the dross that we think is important.
    The first world problems - My show didn't tape, that turkey pinched my parking spot, the kids spilt the cereal on the floor, my sandwich is soggy

    Landscape photography is my escape from life
    Just me and a camera trying to nab that sunrise or crashing wave at a moment in time. Gives me time to breathe.

    Now if only I had more time to get away & actually do it

    Tough choice! The least favourite was relatively easy

    I picked places. Generally I like landscapes, often including old buildings, but also do different types of events, and also flowers, and sports.

    I enjoy people photography too. Sometimes that's combined with events such as photojournalism in festivals, sport, models, and a bit of wedding.

    General long term favourite: Places.
    Probably most enjoyable at the moment: People, particularly candid/photojournalism

    I like landscapes/waterscapes. I enjoy getting out in the bush and hiking so combining the two is a great cure for stress. Not much of a people person so portraiture, either in front of or behind the camera, doesn't float my boat.

    Well I've gone for Nature (Birds specifically) even though I'm not getting out enough & am finding it is a challenging for me but like Bushbikie said stress relief and like the peace. However I do want to try and extend into other genre's

    I chose Macro as I like to take a peek into a whole new world. I find it quite fascinating the things that can be found and the big difference to what we are used to seeing everyday.

    Just to be difficult, I picked "Other"

    I've been in a B & W frame of mind of late, I'll photograph what I think would work as a B & W, irrelevant of the subject matter.

    Macro is fun with the micro 4/3 system and my old Pentax lens at present, plus the hot weather tempers other types of photography apart from some amazing cloud formations with our summer storms being too good an opportunity to miss.
