    In a wilderness scene, suddenly finding footprints within the frame is extremely annoying. I usually abandon the scene as I do not (and never will) include signs of human presence in wilderness scenes. Asthetically, I concentrate on seeking out simple subjects either in isolation or complimentary. I do not photograph people tracks or buildings.

    One often disabling turn-off is 120 or 35mm film suddenly jamming, either on/during wind, or near the end of rewind. With no changebag handy, I've often resorted to diving into bushes with a black raincoat and hurriedly yanking out the offending roll — irrespective of the gaggle of curious people nearby.

    Digitally additive/modified images that skew reality so badly I don't bother a second passing glance.

    And finally: My pet-hate is fishe-eye lens photographs. Please —! We've all seen the effect — too often and it is nothing new under the (360 degree) sun!

    I can recommend my favorite photographers. Robert Frank, Garry Winogrand, Todd Papageorge, Lee Friedlander, a few shots of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Elliott Erwitt, Tom Wood, Trent Parke and similar.
    There are plenty of their photos online, but there also books, and some galleries have their prints as well.

    Interesting question... One I find very difficult to answer. Every time I think I have a "style" of photography I dislike, I see something in that genre which I really like a lot. And, every time I'm convinced there's a "style" I do like, I see something which doesn't do it for me. I guess I'm not able to make generalizations- each image I view elicits a unique response, regardless of genre. But, this is one of the reasons I love seeing photographs (indeed, all art), as my response to the work never fails to surprise me.

    What about kitty porn?
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Turn ons:
    Well composed/Timed Street

    On... a unique and consistent vision
    grasp of technique

    Offs
    -tombstones
    -uncomfortable nudes
    -cats, dogs, tombstones, scrapyards... photos of bald eagles sitting on trees, out of focus bald eagles
    -bad technique, blair witch tributes, fuzzy things weather fuzzy in reality
    -black and white that is nothing but dark greys... it's not light and dark grey photography!
