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.

PRO AutoFOCUS Settings in the Photography


Your camera autofocus system always supports you to freeze the speedy subject, subject's speed does not matter at all because sometimes you shot running trains, buses, car, bikes and every vehicle has their own running speed but that time important thing is to manage your photography gears settings so that you don't miss the shot. While capturing the speedy subject, you must focus on handling your camera autofocus system and how efficiently you set up your autofocus settings in your camera that matter a lot or that will capture the stunning shot.

There are good and better autofocus setting in your camera that you should know always in advance so that accordingly you can pre-set your camera setting to avoid any goof-up.

Let's discuss the autofocus system to freeze the high-speed subject.

Auto Mode- Set your camera/lens, focus dial on auto focus mode from manual mode so that your camera can focus subject automatically. Few photographers prefer to shoot on the manual focusing system, they focus the subject by rotating the lens ring but This does not work in capturing the high-speed subject and rest is your choice.

Shutter Speed Priority -  When planning to shoot high-speed subjects like speed cars or bike then your first job is to do, Set your cameras on shutter speed priority mode because the faster the shutter speed the easier it is to photograph the subject without blur and “freeze” motion and the smaller the effects of camera shake. This mode set aperture its own or automatically to capture the scene

Multiple Autofocus Points - Set your Autofocus on multiple autofocusing points, you must do this job in advance before reaching the location otherwise you may skip to switched on to this multiple autofocus points option. When pressing the half shutter button, some of these focusing points will light up and lock onto the subject being captured. Multiple autofocus point may very camera to the camera means some cameras are having 9, 11 and 51 multiple focusing points. Please check with your camera manual book before planning to shoot. You must know your camera strength in advance. 

Focus PRESET - Mostly we try to focus on moving vehicle to capture, Here I advised please pre-set your focus or focus the spot where the vehicle or speedy subject has to come in the frame, means preplanning of the focus point, this will help you to get perfect shot. Must try it

Auto ISO - Last but not the least, Set you camera at Auto ISO, this really helps you out, Why I am mentioning this point because you should not play with the camera setting when shooting your subject. Sometimes handling setting can miss your shot, must not forget.

Conclusion- Small basic and advance knowledge will always help you get your shot perfectly. We must have a habit to test all the camera setting so that we should be familiar with our camera settings and strength.

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