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. Must work in a professional manner and convince others with his creative photographs Must respect his photography kit and always keep maintaining the kit because sometimes your maintained kit also express your passion.  He must pursue a good character and behave nicely, professionally.

Be Technology Friendly

Does a camera technology scare you?  This article is about Photography technology, post-processing or any other new technology.  Nowadays we all keep on interacting with the latest photography gadgets, latest unbelievable photography technology and other non-photography technology like internet introduced to the car, hearing aid machine etc. Sometimes they also confuse us to use or do not use it. It is all depending on your particular requirement of the product like Fx camera, Dx camera, wide lens, zoom lens, tripod, filters, post-processing software endless photography equipment and accessories or life running technology. 

Most of us must be using old technology accessories and not ready to upgrade. the reason may be or may not be the monetary or expensive products issues. Now the question is why we are not upgrading towards better photography or better life cycle.  

Recently there is a new launch of Mirrorless cameras. Most of the photographers have not even tried to check physically, never seen the difference of quality of photographs, user-friendly device or not. Do you know the reason why they haven't or felt the mirrorless camera or another new photography technology lens/camera body? As a photographer, we must try new technology at least on rent to check the difference. 

The only reason is, they are so comfortable with the current photography equipment, with the current features of cameras or other devices. They don't want to switch to other new technology. This is something not good for serious professional photographers. 

If you do not change then Change will not happen at all.

I never understand, why photographer scare to adopt the new technology for a better future. I share one important conversation with my colleague photographer. He is using Nikon D5200 for 7 years and does not want to upgrade and he used to quote " You should know only photography, equipment does not matter " This is something I never accepted because we all photographer are creative and creatives people add always something new to his art and craft. Fortunately, our art is based on electronic devices, More great technology devices produce great creative images with great details. 

I would like to request all my blog reader, beginner photographers, students etc to be friendly with the latest technology not only for photography-related but other important technology which gives ease to your life, profession etc. Because one thing is sure, we have to live in this electronic, digitally life and there is no way out. You have to be friendly with all the latest technology, gadgets. It is like this in every 3-5 years you change your car and your new car is always better technology-wise, featurewise, oil consumption wise etc. than the old one and you make your self so comfortable and friendly with the new car. 

Do not run from the new technology, do not scare at all. Always understand and be friendly with the new technology and I assure this will improve your life, photography career or any other career etc.

Keep experimenting and have wonderful and happy photography to you all
