About This Quiz
What's the best way to capture a moment? Is it by simply remembering it in your mind? Or is it by writing it down in a journal? Maybe it's both, or perhaps it's best captured by taking a picture of it. And that's where the art of photography comes in because this hobby/profession is all about taking a snapshot of the present, which creates past memories for the future!
But photography isn't just about clicking a button and hoping for the best. You'll need gear (like lenses), as well as photo editing software programs and excellent cameras. And above all, you'll have to identify your "niche." There are many styles of photography out there, and some of them include fashion, travel, still life and wedding photography. Each of these "styles" requires different kinds of lighting and/or photography tech, simply because they're all so different from one another. But which one matches your personality the best? Is it something like sports photography because of how action-packed it is? Or do you love to travel and say "hello" to wild animals (which is great for wildlife photographers)? No matter what your interests are like, this photogenic quiz will attempt to "capture" your true personality!
