Lets see what members photograph most of the time...
If you think you photograph anything, just choose the most common subjects of yours.

Sorry If I missed something...it allows 12 items.

I would love to be a landscape photographer, but street is all i got.

You tell me, would you rather be walking the noisy polluted street photographing sad people or sitting with a warm cup of tea in your hand, somewhere in Himalayas for the light to change?

Its so obvious. :)

It is my dream also travel and take people portraits in different parts of the world. That can include landscape photography too. I think because few people have this opportunity unless you are national geography photographer or something like that...Streets is more accessible and one of the easiest options :)

By the way I added .../Expressions for the member Israel only :) as it is his favorite.

How about sitting in a warm Starbucks, looking out on the street, sipping a latte and discussing which lens would be best to shoot the light changing in the Himalayas? That's my vote! ;)

No one is admitting to be a fashion photographer? I wonder why... lol

Some of what I do could probably considered fashion. Of course, I would like to believe that it is fine art. :angel:

Checked Street/Candid, Model's Fashion Glamor as well as Fine Art . As most what I shoot with models falls more into the lifestyle and artistic nude styles then it does in fashion or glamor.

Sometimes I prefer the former, sometimes I prefer the latter.

It'd be incredibly boring to shoot one type of pictures all...the...time.

Thank you for spoiling my Himalayan landscape reveries.



The only time I ever enjoyed photographing a Starbucks was when it was trashed by Anarchists. I felt guilty feeling so good... Of course not that in anyway I condone acts of vandalism against Starbucks or any other similar establishment.

I could shoot pretty naked girls (of legal age of course) in interesting poses all day long every day. :D

Wait, I think I want to be Ralph Gibson.

The only time I have been in a Starbucks was with Al Kaplan. Since he was, and I still am, a one lens kind of guy who shoots in whatever light there is, we discussed and photographed the women who came in or walked by on the sidewalk. That's my vote1

There are plenty of noisy polluted streets in the Himalayas, and people can be happy or sad anywhere.

Personally I prefer a beaker of chang to chai, or even to decent Tibetan tea made with butter and salt.

Cheers,

I suppose what I shoot is "street" but I am now getting interested in more documentary style so that maybe my work might be of interest to someone in 50 years time, if it lasts that long, I know I won't.
I also like alternative methods such as pin-hole and am at present making a series of solargraphs around my home town.

is it a sin to have a RF and not do street photography? (sure, that's a rhetorical question ;))

My random shooting consist of everything from lens test to selfies in the mirror. Brick walls to cemetery plots. I shoot it all! Other times I'm testing my skills at landscape, street, & an occasional dog or cat. Hoping one day my cemetery plots will turn in to fine art prints worth thousands!;)

I should have included "Still Life" category instead of wedding :(
