    What type of photography are you into and why?

    Hi Guys

    Not sure if something like this has been covered or not.

    Just wondering what type of photography you are into and why?

    I myself mainly do the Landscape and Outdoor scenary shots as I enjoy the outdoors.

    I was going to do a poll but thought there was to many types to mention and I may have missed something.

    Cheers

    I'm into what ever is going.
    Macro, flowers, pets, product shots, cars - you name it, and I've photographed it, and enjoyed doing it.

    I think that photography is such a wide-ranging hobby so why just limit yourself to one or 2 types.

    Just do them all!
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.

    Predominantly landscape/architectural work. Just because I love going out and seeing new places. Soon I think I'll be getting more into cars and the like, but we'll see what happens!

    Landscape / Macro : because I work such a busy 9-5, dealing with people in varying moods and from various backgrounds, I like the landscape to escape to. It is my zen. When it's myself and my camera in the field, we don't have to talk to anyone, we don't have to direect them or take into account their feelings or emotions. Escapism...

    People photography atm. Cos the human element often adds a new dimension to just capturing. I find the interaction sometimes challenging and always interesting.

    ROE is through Surf Photography.

    Landscape (pre-dominately seascape) is my "artistic" "enjoyment" of photography with no hassles.
    I've drowned 3 cameras, bounced off a reef and lost 2 front teeth, had various fin chops and am really starting to feel OLD!

    But.....................................still love shooting the curl.

    All and sundry really. That's what makes it hard when discussing lens and people reply "what are you using it for?" Specifically 25 years ago, it was family and pets. Now it is horse racing, cars/trucks, landscape, birds, rock formations (developed a real interest for some strange reason) and scenery/weather but lastly and least of all - humans.

    everything. Like getting out of my comfort zone and trying something new. But primarily it would be landscapes, cause I live in the state with the most amazing scenery, and capturing its uniqueness is worth doing. I love exploring and finding locations that are not the touristy haunts of Tasmania.

    Constructive Critique of my photographs is always appreciated

    Mainly birds, it takes me into the wild but I do not mind a nice landscape when I see one.
