    I'm going to implement a circuit with photodiode and IC741(op-amp). The task of the circuit is responding quickly with the change of light.

    But I think I'm facing problems with IC741. Is it a poor choice? In that case, what will be the right choice?

    Yes.

    Avoid the 741.

    There are many much better Op Amps out there, thought I suspect what you really want is a Comparator.
