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.

When camera setting DISTURBED?

A Nightmare, After the shoot when the photographer comes to know about the camera's setting disturbance. When the photographer is ready to edit the images and he found that photographs were shot on the HIGH ISO causing too many grains, Shot on the low shutter speed causing shake, Used incorrect aperture causing background blurred/distracted, incorrect focus etc. One of these settings is enough to spoil your photography assignment or project and sometimes career too. Better behave properly with a camera the settings. 

It happens with everyone at the beginning of the career. I shot the entire travel shoot at high ISO 500 with the F4 aperture setting. Still, I remember the pain of the loss of all the travelling photographs. But what to do, these experiences convert you as a better photographer. I hope you all agree on this. Never feel dishearten and never think that you cannot be a good photographer if anybody of you faces the setting disturbance in your shoot. Mistakes make a man perfect

Now the question is this, how to avoid this nightmare happening in any photographer's life. Let discuss the few important points to avoid such nightmares.

When packing the kit-  Whenever you are back from the shoot and going to pack your photography kit for the next shoot. Always check your camera setting carefully and RESET at the basic camera setting like ISO @ 100 etc. This habit will never spoil your shoot because basic settings never spoil any shoot. Always remember. have a habit to check the camera setting before the shoot and after the shoot. 

Few Basic camera settings

ISO- Always set your ISO@100, In case you change ISO then again set100 after the shoot is done. 
Shutter speed - Never ever shoot less than a 1/30th of a second, Try to have good speed like 1/100th of a second
Aperture- Always set your aperture at F 5.6 if you change then reset again after the shoot is done.
Autofocusing- Always set your camera at autofocusing setting because sometimes you forget that your camera is set on the manual setting.
White balance- Set your WB at Auto but this can be edit positively in post-processing too. 

Every photographer set his own prefer basic setting or his experience educate him to shoot at a better camera setting. Above mentioned setting is not a universal setting, I have mentioned as per my photography experiences and I found it is really great up to a certain extent.

Whenever your photographs are spoiled then there are few important editing techniques available in Adobe LR/PS etc Like White balance etc but ISO, Aperture, shutter speed cannot be changed. Please make your habit to check the camera setting before pressing the shutter button. Please never ever shoot without checking the camera setting. Ignorance of setting can spoil your amazing shots. For better photographs, you need to have great knowledge of setting too. Every high-end lens, professional kit always depends upon the knowledge of the perfect camera setting along with the photographer's in-depth knowledge.

It is just a matter of carefully noticing/observing the camera setting before or after the shoot. Please make this habit and enjoy your photography life.

Keep experimenting, Have wonderful and happy photography to you all
