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.

Know the right TIMING to shoot


The majority of people believe that Photography depends upon high-end photography equipment, locations, weather condition, photography knowledge and other end numbers of reasons. But how many of them actually know about the major requirement of capturing the great shots. Every photographer has a difference of opinions regarding this, But every stunning photograph actually based on the RIGHT TIMING. Finding, waiting and exploring the right timing before pressing the shutter button is called true or right photography. 

See the above-posted (top) photographs, it was shot very long back on the location of Golden temple,  Amritsar, INDIA. The flag is called NISHAN SAHIB (auspicious flag for Sikhism). A concerned person, who change the flag's cloth every day. that moment no technicality, no equipment, no other preplanning of photography worked at all. I shot this image from the low angle and captured all the content in one single frame. Here only one thing matters that is called RIGHT TIMING and the entire photograph becomes great photographs. 

What is Right Timing - Sometimes beginner photographer ask one question, what is the right timing. According to me, the photograph speaks more or convey a strong message in a very innovative way to the viewers, photographs complies strong story,  photographs shows the amazing unbelievable moments of human, wildlife, nature etc which is not possible with all the preplanning steps of photography, called right timing. 

Patience support right timing - Like famous, renowned photographer always mentioned in their quotes, patience plays a major role in photography. Photographers spend or invest timing in the interiors of the jungle, ice burg, dessert, canyon, mountains etc and wait for the right time to capture the wild animals, different species, landscape, unexplored location etc they shot the subject on the correct right timing and their photographs speak 10000s of words in one single go. See the below-posted image.

Dull shot - Sometimes photographer shoot the good content but timing goes out of the better framing or miss the moment, most importantly lack of patience, move out of the shooting spot frequently. This creates a bad habit in the photographer called shooting impatiently. Which might have killed your photography career and passion.  Better watch it if you are looking for becoming a better professional photographer. 

Conclusion- Patience helps us not in photography life but in our personal life. We must develop this content called patience in our professional life as well as personal life. This patience pays back amazingly which you could never expect in the beginning. believe me. 

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