    1. it's fun
    2. improve skills
    3. searching for theme that i'm strong at
    4. don't want to keep white elephant
    5. can meet up with people (during outings)

    Not always necessarily the subject matter, but whether or not it catches my eye. Depends on my mood, where I decide to go, I guess it really is subjective for myself -- people over wildlife in general though, laugh.

    that's the diff between a pro and hobbyist. I shoot what I like and I'm stress free because I have no one to answer to except myself.

    I chose "Tend to shoot because of interest in subject." because I cannot find the exact description of what I actually like. I also like to shoot for the sake of shooting. I don't need a story or any meaning of what I am capturing, as long as I am interested in the subject matter, I shoot, shoot and shoot some more.

    The act of shooting, capturing a fleeting moment, is what I like. But, I am also bery picky of what I shoot. Hmm ....

    Ask yourself which girl in her right mind would pose in front of you in her bikini if you don't hold a camera.

    This is the only reason to shoot.

    I shoot because I am excited to see the results. It helps that I love the sound of the shutter.

    But then I find that I do focus on a street/landscapes and some PJ. Maybe I should try shooting girls in bikinis

    but i still came back. i shoot in bnw is because its where i find solitude.

    not for the sake of money.

    not for the sake of anything

    for the Passion of photography
    for the Passion of nature and life.

    i lived in a world of black and white..

    Hmm..almost the same reason why I started roaming the streets on weekday nights..

    Shoot for posterity's sake. I mostly shoot events (and therefore people), and I like looking back at photographs that are 1-2 years old or older.

    "Hey, I remember him!", or "wah she looked so 'dut' then!"...

    I shoot in a vain attempt to record my memories.

    So, you can say I shoot because I am interested in my subjects: people and relationships.

    Anyway, I didn't vote because I don't understand the difference between "mostly shoot" and "tend to shoot".
