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.

PERFECTION comes through the PRACTICE

What is the reason for the perfect photographs? There are endless reasons from different photographer, community, blogs, articles, books etc. Different photography reasons are mentioned below.

  1. Content
  2. Framing 
  3. Lighting effect
  4. Messages
  5. Wow factors
  6. Lenses
  7. Camera Body
  8. Editing Skills
  9. Locations
  10. Clean background and many more.
I too agree with all the reasons which I have mentioned above but up to a certain extent, But the correct answer is Still Missing. But what I feel about the correct answer or according to me and my 10 years hardcore experience. Which has compelled me to believe in this deeply? 

The answer is "Perfect photographs comes through the continuous and hardcore practising  of the photography" 

I have met so many beginners, hobbyist photographer who always believe that perfect photographs based on the high-end professional camera. But none of them has ever read about that professional photographer's photography life's content like a hardcore struggle, patience, learning, practising, travelling, knowledge etc. Off course one of the important thing that I forgot to mentioned that is their great sacrifices for their photography passion. 

I know a few famous photographers who did not have a good camera, laptop for editing, basic photography knowledge at the beginning of their career but they become a famous photographer worldwide and few other famous photographers who quit their money-minting job, career etc to follow their photography passion and they also touched the sky. 

One thing common in all of them that is their continuous practice in all the favouring & against life situations with best or average photography equipment, financial issues etc

Now our main purpose is practice & practice in all the life's situations (positive or negative), all the easy available genres like street, travel, nature, flowers, birds, indoor and outdoor, portrait or which is more easily available to shoot near your location. Once you are experinced to shoot in any photography conditions then hunt for a new travel destination, tough photography genres etc. Do not run to buy expensive photography equipment to practice, do practice with the current and available equipment that you have. We will buy expensive photography kit gradually or slowly and the moment we start getting professional assignments or when we take photography as a career. 

Always remember that Practice makes a man Perfect and it is proven RIGHT proverb/quote in all the business, profession, jobs, services, sports, games, writing etc any training, etc whatever things available in this world requires your correct practices. 

I know, nowadays we all suffering through coronavirus (covid19) worldwide and we all are locked down (India) in our homes for the past of 15 days and I do not know how long we have to be in this lockdown situation. but we have no option left except lockdown step. Please don't go out to shoot spacially, stay at home and stay safe. But start shooting your family member, kitchen utensil, shoes, taps, buckets, bottles, books, pen and pencil or whatever you find an interesting subject to shoot then, please shoot. This will increase your creativity in this limited space.

I Found this colourful hanging beads (posted below) in my home in this lockdown situation and I shot this. I hope you like. 

Keep experimenting, Have wonderful & happy photography to you all
