In general...I photograph nature...trying to capture a little of beautiness and I take picture of the people I travel with to have some nice memories.

I always love to capture the different shades of nature as it is. I avoid putting someone in the frame which I think spoils the whole pic. It has become a habit sort of thing.
My wife was always complaining about this all these years, when she shows it to her kitty party friends, they think as if you borrowed the pics from someone. Now with the digicam I take two sets of same pics without her and with her.

I love taking pictures of people! The willing ones, of course. And colors. One of my favorite things about some places I've visited were the vibrant colors, be it a lotus blossom bursting open during the rain or the Grand Canyon glowing at sunset. Throw in some goofy pictures to make for some fun along the way, like playing with the phone booths in England. Really, anything I'd be proud to hang on my wall or get a good giggle out of or other memory flooding back later.

Quoting tway

I like to take pictures of whatever awes me at the time. One of my favourites is of Neal sitting cross-legged at the entrance of Oak Alley Plantation. Somehow I got the perspective just right, and caught the massiveness and beauty of the place. It gives me shivers when I see it, just like it did when I was there. That's usually what I'm going for.

I am with you...anything that causes shivers has got to be good!

I take a photo in the hope that myself and others say its a photo that can give a great view.. A photo is different to all people, if most say they like it then its a photo thats been worth taking..

I hope you can understand that...LOL.... If you like my photo`s then they were taking correctly.. Let me know...

Im not awfully into taking shots of people - sights to remind me of the country and experience - it might be a lotus flower in a pond or a blossom of the tree - something that might bring back the invocotive memoirs of smell sight and sound.

I usually take photos of buildings (try to take the not so obvious angles)and nature of course. I hardly have any photos of me in it and since most of my travel has been alone, not many of the people I travel with.

What I would really like to do but usually never have the nerve to do is take photos of the locals. I have improved a lot though over the past year and have read some interesting blogs on this site on how to photograph people.

I beleive that the best travel photos are the ones with local people in it . Do check out a few of the photos I have posted in my profile (started posting a few when I have the time)

I love taking pictures of people taking photos of other things/people... It is quite curious seeing with my camera what they want to photograph with theirs. NOw that I am on a relationship, I love taking pictures of my boyfriend (who is a photographer) taking pictures.

but normally I just take shots of everything, from buildings, small things on the floor, people, trams,.... Not so much to animals though

I am a wide angle shooter by nature. However, taking cultural shots (closeups, portraits, etc) are also quite fascinating.
Usually, I try to walk around with a mental photo frame in my eyes. Look at the colors and the scene in front of me, and try to picture how would it look like in a frame, or different colors, or sentimental values, etc.

Composing wide angle scenery shots is easy, but people pictures are more challenging. Good scenery pictures, I think, takes technique. Good people pictures takes technique, luck, and social skills!
