    We all have our strengths and weaknesses, so what's your weakness? What's that style you just can't seem to get a handle on?

    For me it's macro flower photography. I'm just awful at it.

    unfortunatly I have hardly tried many of the different forms of photography - and many that I have I have only done so for a short while.
    I would say I am currently rubbish at it all barring macro - where I have a little skill.
    Though I still have a long way to go!

    I'm currently terrible at all photography ;) But portrait and people photography I admit I will never understand. I can't tell one skin tone from another.

    I have a long way to go yet pretty much eveywhere, but it's the journey that is the important and most fun part, not some imagined final destination. ;)

    I suck photographing people the way I would like to. I wish I could have that national geographic kind of knack for taking photos, but I'm usually too timid to take pictures of strangers- so for now, I take pics of objects that can't get mad at me.

    I'd say my weakness would be portrait photography.

    Being a noob, I have to say it would be much harder to find a strength. But I have to say I am terrified of portaits. Like Dmitri said, "I can't tell one skin tone from another"

    It's probably portraiture for me, but I'm getting better...

    For the life of me, I can not photograph someone, Like if it's one on one or my and a family or something, I just can't do it. If There is a group or something or their pre-occupied then It's a blast.
