I think I'm the one person on here who can make a mess of the most perfect landscape.
I'm not really happy with studio work either but just love photographing people,.... providing they're not in a studio.

Well, I've been out of the game for a while, so I think I probably need to brush up in all areas! If I had to pick I'd say landscapes.

Weakest?
I have so many I don't know which one to choose - I guess though that people is one which will stand out a bit more than the others.

If its not an insect, flower or animal (most suitably in a zoo) then I am stumped! Landscapes and wildlife are my biggest worries though as they are key areas I want to get into so they are the ones that stand out to me as my weaker areas.
Honestly though only been at this for 1+something years so still a long way to go yet Smile

Any that I couldn't care less about. Though in a mysterious ying yang balancing act this equates to anything a camera club tog/judge loves (jaded landscpes, birdies, steam trains etc etc).

I take landscapes but I wouldn't say I was good at them.

I don't know if I'd be good at photographing male nudes. So there's only one way to find out ... sigh. How we struggle for our art ... 8-]

good one Paul... it would be fun if they developed cams which refused to take images at certain speed/aperture combination!

Landscapes. Agree with everyone who has problems with them. Part of the difficulty is that everyone who owns a camera - compact or slr - seems to think they can take landscapes. (Including me!) You just point and shoot, don't you? Well it never works for me. If the composition is OK, the exposure is all wrong; if I get the exposure right then the composition is just plain dull. I admire enormously some of the examples on EPZ, because the more I try the more I appreciate the difficulties of taking a really stunning landscape. Now give me a tiger (in a cage!) and I can get a good shot. Sometimes.

Landscapes are my worst.

I can just about cope with a landscape as long as it has a person obscuring 90% of it.

so that's how I can take bird shots, just have someone stand in the way... I think this is probably very good advice, ignore ornithology except for the BG Smile

I could probably do it IF I had one of those canon 800mm lenses!
but with a 50mm no way!

It'd be a lot quicker to say what aren't my weaknesses - I can (sometimes) get ok shots of flora and fauna but even then I can see I still have a long way to go. Waiting to start an OCA course (if the tutor ever bothers getting in touch) and going on a photographic holiday with Philip Dunn of Photo Active soon, so at least I'm trying!
