Personality of a photographer?

I have always faced this question " What personality traits do photographers have" Beginners often keep asking this question like what makes the photographer different from other people, what kind of attitude he must carry on.   According to me, every photographer creates a different known space in the world of photography by adding his creatives, different thoughts, a different aspect etc.  "Photographers need to be artistic, meaningful communication through his photographs, original creative ideas and all he expresses his true expression. He is well able to influence others"  A few important things need to be followed by all the photographers. He need not be conventional.

Sometimes we ignore the interesting subject and content by passing away. We never thought, observe, explore closely those interesting subjects coming towards us or we are passing through those subjects. We always try to shoot beautiful things or common genres like portrait, travel, wildlife and other known photography genres. But that's our job to find out, explore the beauty, interesting forms from the unusual subject.

I tell you honestly, once you start observing, noticing the building's exterior, Road's turns, forest's trees curve, the texture of the leaf, stone, mountains etc. I am sure you will explore definitely beautiful communicative images. See the image posted below. It's a texture or a pattern of the hand made chair exhibited in the fair. see the beautiful pattern.

Do one exercise, take out your DSLR camera and explore and shoot only texture, symmetrical design, Building architects, curves etc and feel the experience of different photography. This will give a good experience to shoot macros.


Explore the Interesting pattern, different forms, building architectures, road moves, street light lines, trees lines, handicraft design etc. The most important task of this exercise is observing, noticing all the subjects interact with you in any form of liquid or solid. This will trigger your creative mind to shoot more creative photographs. 

It is you who explores all the best possibilities of photography. Like in the past no one had ever thought of shooting pregnant women, nude portrait etc but someone explored these genres and now it is one of the most paying genres. It is the photographer's job to keep their mind alert to explore, discover the unusual, more interesting, more eye-catchy subject and that proves yours out of the box creativity and that is the only requirement and expectations of your viewers and client.

Everything is visible in front of your eyes only you need to explore, everything is interesting only how you shoot or capture interestingly. No one is born with creativity, all the creative person, artist, photographers, designers explore the thing at the different, unusual, creative level and that only proves their profession, genre etc. I hope this article will wake you up to capture hidden interesting content near you.

Keep experimenting and Have wonderful and happy photography to you all.
