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.

Importance of a camera STRAP ( Side or Shoulder Strap)

This article is not about photography's article, tips and tricks, lighting and others. This article is about one of the important photography accessories called Camera's SIDE, SHOULDER, SLING  STRAP. I have seen so many beginners/hobbyist photographer hanging their camera in their neck and suffer from the neckache or other problem. 

There are so many straps are available in the market like HAND STRAP, CROSSBODY STRAP, Side strap, Neck strap ETC and also available in different materials like cotton, nylon, leather etc and one can choose as per their conveniences and budget etc But I strongly advised to avoid the neck strap to hang your camera and its weight spacially when using heavy lenses. See the below-posted image


Why mostly photographer uses the neck strap? I guess the reason is to use the neck strap is always comes free with the camera body. Mostly photographer avoids buying a new camera strap and used the freebies. Here, I would like to mention one important thing and that is No strap is costly than your neck pain. freebies do not work always. Ignore the freebies and buy the side strap for your camera.

I have tried so many different camera straps but my VOTE goes for side strap and it gives you full freedom of any physical problem. No more neck pains. I must tell also the advantages of the using side camera strap.

Advantages of the side strap
  1. Can hold the weight of heavy lenses & camera body
  2. Can change the lens easily and need not remove the strap
  3. Never gives burden on your neck and shoulder. 
  4. The camera is safe from accidental knocks and if someone snatches the camera then there will not be any hazardous effect on the neck.
  5. Helps you to shoot for a long duration without any physical pain. 
One more important suggestion, never ever buy the cheap strap because if it fails to lift the weight of the camera or slips or dropped down on the earth then Not even God can save your lens to be broken. It has to be fail-safe. Please check the strength carefully. 

I hope this small and crisp article help you to choose the right kind of camera strap for safety and better photography.

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