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.

What makes an Image perfect?

There are lots of opinion about what makes an Image perfect, every photographer has a different opinion about perfect images and up to a certain extent they are right at their place. Some say an image is perfect which has great composition, great content, great lighting technics, some say perfect editing skills make an image perfect. Sometimes, It is quite confusing and makes other photographer confused. 

Still, the question exists at the same place. 'What makes an image perfect"  So let's find out the answer what is a perfect image. 

We all beginner, professional photographer capture the photographs by maintaining all the important things like composition, framing, lighting, content, exposures and more communicating images to the viewer. But professional photographer always looks for one more extra step and that is the purpose of the shooting images. means where are the photographs going to land, published, exhibit, showcasing etc and who are the viewers.

Pro Photographer's duty- Every professional photographer who takes the assignment, the project to shoot must know in advance the purpose of photography like the client is going to use the photograph for the website, brochure, catalogue, magazine, posters, electronic media or print media etc

Beginner photographer's job- Beginner photographer can be travel, wildlife, nature, street photographer. He is always busy in shooting photographs and made a collection of all the captured images. His job is to know that where he is going to publish his images like in the exhibitions, photo fairs, Hotel's lobby or wanna sell to the stock photo website like Getty images, If photographs are going to be converted into BIG posters then he has to maintain the quality of the images before he exhibits the images to attract more viewers.

Conclusion- Your image's viewer opinion makes your images perfect. See lots of big posters where images are grainy, blurry or pixelated and fail to communicate to the viewers. because of poor photography. It is not only printing matter, but it's not shot as per the big poster's requirement sometimes photographs published on electronic media's are also pixelated (spoiled). the reason is the same, not shot as per the requirement. Some reader of the blog may be or may not be agreed with this opinion. But great movies all those are a big hit, the odeons are not concerned with the technology, budgeting, and other interesting techniques are used in making of the film. They liked the movie, that's all.

Always shoot as per the requirement, as per the mode of publication because this really improves your level of photography. Never ever be hurry to capture the shot. I hope you must have seen big posters at the Airport, Metro station etc and I am sure you must have liked all those posters, the reason of this beautiful poster because It was shot as per the poster requirements. Sometimes, you must have seen the fashion catalogue and all the images look perfect because it was shot as per the catalogue requirement. To maintain all those important things in photography, printing etc make the images perfect.  

Understanding the shoot's requirement, purpose, mode of publishing even knowledge of printing (canvas, paper, flex, clothes) etc makes an image perfect and your viewers too. 

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