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.

Reflection Always Surprise You

One of my favourites travelling/nature photography content or subject that is only and only shooting the reflections in the water or hunt for the reflections. One single shot gives you twice great symmetry, mirroring, harmonious photograph along with having a great balance composition. You need not go out for any specific location to shoot, this reflection can be found in the raining situation too. You can start with that too and can understand the challenges that you may face. 

I am hoping that you all love reading this article because of its unique content called REFLECTIONS. Let start discussing reflection and how can you shoot the reflection in a better way. 

Prefer Vertical shot- Mostly photographer prefer to shoot horizontally But being a professional photographer I humbly suggest that please compose the shot vertically. I am sure you will find definite more stunning photographs along with more reflection and more beautiful content. See the above-posted both images and compare horizontal and vertical.

Carry Filters (Polarize, ND etc)- The filters are not used always to shoot reflection but sometimes they help to reduce the speed and give good long exposure shot, sometimes gives you good sky or vibrant colours. But If you have a habit of using filters then the reflection is a good subject to shoot. 

Break the RULES- In some photography genres, you need to break the rule like the rule of thirds, Placement of the subject at the left side or right side etc. You have to take your creative decision there and only there. In the above-posted photographs I had kept the subject the subject in the centre and shoot. 

Low and Close angle- Like I said, break the rules. Try to shoot from a low angle and try to be so close to the water as best as possible (Please follow the safety measures, Please Do not hurt yourself). You will find more stunning, more balanced & mirroring, more beautiful photographs. 

Best Timing- I have always mentioned in all the blogs related to timing and weather. Once again, Please try to shoot in the early morning, late evening or golden hour etc to get better reflection images. 

Where to Focus- It is your wish where you want to focus on the subject, but try to focus on the reflection for the better sharp and stunning shot. It is not fixed but It is my thought. Try this focus point and compare the shot.
