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.

Observe, Shapes & forms in photography


Shapes & forms are quite interesting and confusing topic to understand. But it is highly in-depth content of the photography. I am sure hardly a photographer ever discuss this topic to understand photography better. Every scene contains both shapes and forms because everything is a mixture of both, which is more interesting for a photographer that matters for him to capture. Let's discuss both the concept in little details to clarify the confusion of both.

Shapes -  A two-dimensional (length, breadth but no depth) outline of the subject or object that you capture. Light coming from the front and fall off on the subject, make more flat and two-dimentional image. See the below-posted image, an example of a two-dimensional image.

Forms - Forms is also connected somewhere with the shapes, A three-dimensional (length, breadth, and depth.) aspect created by lights and shade is called forms whears as light falls off on the subject from right, left side or sometimes light falloff on the back of the subject, creates a good or strong highlight and shadow is a good example of forms. See the below-posted image, an example of a three-dimensional image. (light, shadows and perfect depth)

Conclusion - Forms (highlight and shadows) always invite viewers to touch the subject, touch the depth etc whereas shapes sometimes fail to invite the viewers but that does not mean photographs that have shape do not impress the viewers. Both have a slightly different perspective. Choose your best way to produce the photographs. 

Keep experimenting! Have wonderful and happy photography life for you all.
