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.

Better Selfies Techniques

SELFIES are called self-portrait too, The most important requirement of the new and young generation. They do not need anything in their smartphones but they only required a good camera who can capture them nicely everywhere to share with their friends. It is now a fashion even I have noticed my family member spending time to capture selfies instead of communications or enjoying the family function. They don't want to be disturbed at all. That their requirement.  So lets stopped discussing their habits and focus on the better selfies techniques.  

It does not matter at all that which camera you are carrying, the matter is your small knowledge to capture better selfies. there are few important techniques can help you to capture better. I am not going into too many details otherwise my reader can ger confused. 

Let's discuss and follow the few important tips. 
  1. Check the background, It must be cleaned and should not include other person or unwanted things in the framing. 
  2. The light must fall on your face, You must be opposite the light.
  3. Capture 2-3 images of each shot so that you can choose the final one to share with the friends and family.  
  4. May choose filters like vivid, enhanced, mirrors to give improvements to your images.
  5. Always store or save your great selfies into safe custody like google photos, google drive etc so that you can have a bank of great photos and If phone changed or broken then in that case, you have a back-up of your images. HURRAY 
  6. Must buy selfie STICK for better photos even for a long and wide shot. 
  7. If not able to take better selfies then ask someone to shoot you that really helps sometimes. 
  8. Never shoot your self from your shoes to head, shoot from your waistline for a better image.
  9. Shoot yourself creatively
  10. Check all your dress-up, makeup, hairs before taking selfies. 
  11. Avoid shooting under the shadow, under the trees etc
Safety comes first- No selfies are more important than your life. Please avoid taking selfies on the prohibited area like escalators, railways station, busy roads, on the building roof, out of window seat of the buses etc. Don't allow your fun to become an accident because your family is waiting at your home. Think wisely

Poses- So many friends of mine always ask about the poses, how to shoot the better pose. I have one opinion to share, these selfies are taken for the fun, to share with friend and family. Which has no professional use? Any pose, any smile, any angle is absolutely perfect because you're capturing your self for fun. Don't think over on the poses, ENJOY selfies. 

Keep experimenting and have a wonderful and happy photography life to you
