About This Quiz

There are many types of art in this world. Painting. Drawing. Graphic design. Theatrical performances. But what about a type of art that can be captured in the moment through a lens? That's where photography comes in, and with the use of smartphone cameras and various social media filters (especially on Instagram), almost anybody can call themselves a photographer. Now some people like to take pictures of themselves (also called selfies), while others love to photograph animals and mountains in the wilderness. But what does your photography style say about your overall personality?

What it really comes down to is your favorite type of photography, since certain people are drawn to specific styles. Maybe you like working with people, and you want to capture someone's soul through their eyes, which means that you're a portrait photographer. On the other hand, someone who prefers to be alone under the twinkling stars might enjoy night photography. There's also food photography, abstract photography and fine-art photography, which are all very technical. So whatever style you're drawn to and no matter what your experience level is like, there's a professional photographer somewhere within you. Now let's bring that side of you out more with this photogenic quiz!
