Favorite subject to shoot?

I've shot a ton of different subjects and I've realized that my favorite subject to shoot is locations. I love exploring abandonments and being out in nature and capturing those adventures is my absolute passion. All of my photos have some form of sentimental feeling to me because everywhere I shoot I've thoroughly enjoyed exploring. I tend to shy away from having people in my shots, though I do really enjoy shooting people interacting with certain scenes to achieve things like getting a sense of scale. I've also recently tried doing a sports shoot and took several photos of people riding on ATVs and found that to be a lot of fun as well.

So how about you guys? What's your favorite subject to shoot and why?

Not really sure what my favourite subject to shoot is. I'd say "People" but that's not entirely accurate. I like shooting anything that gives me a certain amount of control. I like creating a scene in which I can tell a story; but to write that story I like having as much control over a scene as possible. With people that control becomes easier because of verbal direction, but recently I've been getting into food photography because 1) I like cooking, and 2) you can control how your food looks and it's a challenge to get it to look the most appealing.

That's awesome. I'm kind of the exactly opposite. I prefer to just stumble upon my scenes and the only control I have is how I choose to compose the shots. I have been trying to get into creating scenes a little more recently though with doing portrait photography. Definitely makes me give more respect to the people who set up their own scenes because getting all the details right isn't always easy.
