    I thought this would be fun to put up, Personally I love sports, I love the stupid look on their faces they call focus, it makes me crack up. Its just so unpredictable and spontaneous.


    So whats yours?

    non-representational (eg. not pics of people, pets, landscapes, etc..) fine art photography. because it is just plain more interesting. i generally prefer film to digital for this stuff as well.

    i like more abstract pictures, spur of the moment stuff, and macros. (out of the options those are what i chose)

    mainly i just find these more pleasing to my sensibilities.

    I like macro shots. Because you can see such amazing detail. If it is black and white even better.

    Nature, both wildlife and landscape. Mostly, I like the interaction with the environment. I also enjoy being able to share the results with others.

    Porn for obvious reasons.... :eek:


    But seriously, I really like macro pictures of strange looking plants. There is a plant growing in some rivers in the south island at the moment (Forgot what it's real name is but it's nick name is "Rock Snot"). Pictures of it in macro really close up look super cool and alien!

    Also pictures of algae on rocks, sometimes that looks cool to.

    I guess you could say I'm into aquatic plant macro pictures. :D

    I said macro, portraits, wildlife, other. I love great macro/perspective shots. Portraits, often B&W, and amazing wildlife shots.

    My other would be War shots. Not that I ever support war at all, but I've found some of the most powerful, emotional and stunning shots have all come from a atmosphere generated by war, many of these don't even include violence but more so a surreal (yet so real) environment.

    Yeah - also, based on your name (TequilaBoobs, not b0tt094!), I'm guessing your shots tend to be kinda blurry. :D

    I should have known that the MR community would have posted this long before I ever thought of it.

    I was going to say NAKED GIRLS.

    I enjoy shooting plants - flowers and foliage - as well as landscapes.

    I've also just recently discovered that I enjoy taking somewhat informal portraits (for a long time I thought shooting people was boring, so I never put much effort into it).

    I love portraits, outside the studio though when you capture a moment perfectly.

    I also really love sports (extreme sports) shots as they are exciting to view, sometimes make people go woooowww

    Definitely Macro-photography. I'm a Zoologist, specializing in Entomology. With a few exceptions, bugs aren't exactly big, so macros are the way to go ;)
