Most photographers are more inclined toward wildlife, fashion or wedding photography etc. According to them, these genres are quite easy to start and whereas a photojournalist is required to complete his 3-4 years degree of the journalism course. If anybody is looking for photo-journalist genres then you need to finish your studies on journalism. What is photojournalism - This genres belong especially to storytelling photography. A picture is worth a thousand words. The entire photography is based on stories. What is your photograph's story? The story is well enough to share the entire war, accident, events etc. The photo plays an entire war or event story in front of your eyes that's called photojournalism While a journalist will use their pen and paper to tell stories, a photojournalist will use their camera to capture the visual representation of a story and that's a beauty of the pho

Low entry level in the world of photography

There are lots of expenses involved to start a business. For example, If you wanna open a showroom of garments then you require a proper location (own property or renting), a collection of garments to sell, a proper marketing strategy to attract customers (backbone), a staff of 8-10 people to handle all the business in the beginning. Along with this you require running capital to run the entire show. You must have loss bearing capacity to run the show. There is an end number of hurdles that you have to face and win all the challenges. Not even in the running a business of showroom, restaurant, real estate, hospitals, hotels etc every business is having a tough entry-level.  In service-related profession them you need to invest 04-05 years to complete your studies, then internships, work experience etc it takes 8-10 years to start your service-oriented business like lawyers, doctors, engineers etc   Now in the world of photography, there is no investment, no proper education etc. Yo

Superb SUN, A great light source

The light plays a major role in the photography profession. The photographer spent their entire life understanding the indoor and outdoor light, its reflection, it is travelling, it is falling, its impression etc. In another language, I would like to mention that light is a very important tool that gives better photographs.

Shoot Often, Delete often

In  the photography career, practice & experiment is major activity, One should always adopt this habit to improve the level of photography. But Here I would like to mention that practice is a major part of all professions. Our photography is based on practice and experiment as we all know. As long as we travel for the photography career, we become more habitual for practice and experiments. There is also one darkest side of too much practice and experiment for photography. That is maintaining storage, buying cloud space, maintaining external hard devices etc. This is one of the biggest problems, exercise etc rather than I must write that is the biggest headache but being a photographer we have to manage this also because back-up pays a lot to us.  What to do when we are practising and experimenting because day by day our data keep on adding to the storage devices. Let us follow a few important steps to maintain the storage.  Shoot often and delete often  - When we are shooting

Candid Photography ?

  Before we proceed, we need to understand the meaning of candid photography, any useless expression, movements capture cannot be CANDID PHOTOGRAPH. Let's understand candid photography in detail. What is candid photography - In simples language, unplanned, no poses defined, no direction, no photography tips and tricks, captured is called candid photography. Where you are lucky enough to get the best expression, movements, and any other poses that defined unplanned shot or candid shot. Most important requirement - I have seen lots of candid shots, but there was a scary facial expression, no attraction, no expression and there was no storytelling at all. The motive of candid photography is without whispering to anyone, you capture a better shot even letting them know your subject. That is yours winning. Pressing the shutter button unnecessarily may spoil your camera shutter, you waste your time and energy and you come back without capturing a better shot. The best way to capture

In my language, they are photocopying the images and they are very far away from the photography (sorry for that).  In this job scenario, they are only shooting the same requirement and not exploring the creative part of photography. they are bound to follow the same angle, same colour correction, same treatment etc From my point of view, photography cannot be done on a job basis because it is a creative world and not having any dead ends. We photographers are very passionate about the subject, lights, angle, weather condition, indoor high-quality lighting system,
