Personality of a photographer?

Image
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.

Turn the Ordinary into Extraordinary Photograph




Everything like location, model, products, animal, bird, sky, fire, lightning etc all are found ordinary before you view, focus, visit, shoot etc. I hope you all agree with this quote but the moment you change your point of view to read/ that particular subject that moment converts ordinary to the extraordinary subject for the viewers.

Being a human, being a photographer we all are limited to everything like we can move to any wildlife sanctuary but most of the animals or species are common. We can travel to so many destinations but the mountain, water, sky, plants, trees, river, monuments all are same. We can shoot celebrities, model, famous personality but the human body is the same as all the proportionate. We can plan to shoot all the street but all the street's content is the same mostly. Means we all are shooting all ordinary content but your creative, different, out of the box point of view convert that subject from ordinary to Extraordinary 

A journey from ordinary to extraordinary, This article is based on the few simple tips to convert your  Ordinary photograph into Extraordinary Photograph. Everything exists in us but we need to scratch, explore, create etc

Let's discuss few important points or tips to move on to a better level of photography. 

Locations- It ok shooting at the same location but now change the lens and timing. If already shot in the morning with 18-105 mm or another lens then visit the same location but in the evening along with different lens like 50mm, 55-300mm or whatever lens you have. Once you are back and then compare the new photographs with the old one, you will find drastic changes in the same location. See the below-posted image.


Street photography - Same rules apply here about timing and lens but try to shoot the different content along with a change in angle. You will find the different extraordinary photographs. See the below-posted image




Portrait/human shoot- I never advise my students to capture only human who always looks same, same community, same dressing style etc. I always wish to shoot portrait or people in a different way and that must speak better, I hope you must have seen portrait shots using different light, different dresses, hairstyling, accessories etc. See the below-posted image


Wildlife- I guess you have been so many bird sanctuary and national park to shoot birds and wild animal. This time plan to shoot only close shots, NO entire animal, like shoot the eyes, jaw, feathers, beak etc and the compare the shoot with the previous shoots. You will find more extraordinary and stunning photographs. Believe me. See the below-posted image


Conclusion- Small effort of changing photography gears, timings, angles, composition, framing, subject etc can convert your images from ordinary to Extraordinary.  I hope this article will bring more amazing photographs out of your efforts. 

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