    What is your least favourite genre?

    Following on from my other poll on favourite genre, I thought I would ask what genre you do not particularly enjoy/are not really that interested in

    So please choose your LEAST favourite genre.

    feel free to post below telling us why you are not all that interested in your chosen least favourite genre.

    Sport for me. I love watching sport but just not photographing it. It is too fast-paced, difficult to frame a shot, and I don't have the huge zooms that the pros have. Plus trying to figure out why a photo didn't turn out distracts me from the game. I would rather just watch and enjoy.

    None of my friends or family enjoy having their photo taken (even for candid group shots) so I've picked people. Having said that I'm off to Toogoolawah this weekend to take photos of my Aunt having a tandem skydive for her 70th birthday so I may break the drought

    Still life for me. I find the lighting very difficult and don't seem to have the patience to try lots of different settings to get THE shot.

    I'm going to be controversial, but birding.

    Doesn't interest me at all. With that said, I wholly expect that in 10 years I'll be an avid birder, as some sort of karma for posting this comment.

    I think the hardest, and my least favourite, would be abstract.

    I've done some sports including squash tournaments; being a player helps with timing, so am confident there. Flowers and nature, yeah, not too bad, some set shots, some landscape dependent on light... People; okay, although I'm not good at directing shots.

    Abstract my mind just doesn't quite 'see' to shoot. It's something I'd like to get a bit more of a handle on though.

    I dont like lots of Genres so dont even have a go, though it would have to be Landscapes most of all, as I have had a go at that one and fail miserably all the time.

    I shoot with Canon And Olympus Cameras

    And there's another poll for Rick.

    I'll take a photo of anything if there's a reason and inspiration, so not sure I have a least favorite genre for taking photos.
    Also not sure I have a least favorite genre for looking at others photos.
    Can't vote then.

    The irony of me having chosen Nature as my least favourite genre, is that I love nature, and being in it. I'm more inspired by just being there, rather than thinking of a shot.

    Architectural is not my favourite. It's like piggy-backing on someone else's brilliance and claiming it for yourself IMHO. I know it's possible to appreciate great architecture but why photograph it? Let someone else discover it for themselves.

    I chose Abstract as my least favourite, as I just dont understand the concept so dont really find it interesting personally.

    Like the 'Favourite Genre' poll it is a pity that this isn't multiple choice, so I simply selected the area that I have no interest in at all, whether it be photographically or otherwise and that was Sport. Even when I was a kid I hated/had absolutely no interest in any form of sport and still don't.

    I get sick to death of bird photos (sorry Matt)

    They all look the same to me apart from the odd amazing action shots.

    Hard to say. I voted "Other", but now I can't think of anything. Maybe "People", excluding candids, come a close last.
