Hello guys, I am just curious to know if you are picture-taking fanatic or not. When I was at my younger age I really hate taking pictures with me and even in a group picture-taking. I just don't know why. That is why I never had lots of pictures when I was young. Now I realized it would be useful for me if I should have known. Now I need it badly for some personal purposes.... Are you like me before or are you really fond of picture-taking even before..?

I have never been crazy about having my picture taken. I am sorry for that because as I got older..my teen years and above..I don't have many. I do love taking pictures though. My kids will have a bunch.

I used to like having my picture taken when i was young. But I discovered it's so much fun taking pictures rather than BE in the picture. I am more fond of taking pictures now especially when I travel. I am planning to take my interest to another level. I intend to buy a DSLR and take photography lessons.

I love taking pictures but I hate people taking my picture. I love taking landscape pictures of the beach and sunsets and whatnot. My profile picture is one that I took a couple of years ago.

Believe it or not, never took a photography class lol. I just have always loved taking pictures. I would love to submit them to places to see if I can get paid but don't know where to start.

I am not really fond of taking pictures. But due to the nature of my work, then I have to take pictures. I conduct trainings and usually pictures are very important to document the course. So most often I would be taking pictures.

Well I hate people who would take out their little point and shoot camera and shooting whatever they can. I mean relax enjoy your experience first, but No, they just cant wait, even if there is a team lunch they would take the camera out and start shooting !! I am not a photo fanatic I do like to take photos to preserve what I experienced.

I like taking pictures more than I used to, I can edit them if I'm not happy with the way they turn out....so now I don't get red eyes on someone and I can cut out a bad background.

Me too. I was not fond of picture taking when I was younger. My mother always wants me to take a smile when having a picture and sometimes she force me to do so. I haven't realized that pictures are important because it brings back the memories from the past. Now, whenever there are cameras available or if there are people I known that are having pictures, I join with them too. I want to be a part of their memories.

Hello mobhomeir this is checkmail and often mostly skip or avoid picture taking, mostly like to take one.I don't have many pictures of mine, except in childhood but they were all shy.Still i am fond of watching my childhood pics, but not ready to shoot myself.So prefer to get hands on camera instead of refusing pictures.

According to my parents, I loved to have my picture taken. Frankly, I don't remember ever enjoying being in front of a camera! Even now, I am not fond of having my picture taken, but I will endure it without too much complaint.

I love taking still shots, and videos. I have a video camera, and take mostly videos, burning them onto mini dvds, and using a capture program to capture stills from the videos. That way I get the best of both worlds. I never go anywhere without my camera. I love my camera.
