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.

Which is more satisfying ?

 


The important thing to know for all the photographers "Which is more satisfying factors" This is a quite difficult question to answer. There are end number of photographer with their 1000s of amazing photograph collection but still they are little confuse about their photographs, which photography factors satisfy them? In the beginning of my photography career, vivid colour was my first preference or vivid colour in the photograph always satisfy me then time started flying and the priority started keep on changing etc

If you ask this question what satisfy you more, then there will be lots of things will keep on attacking to your mind like colours, framing, expensive camera kit, content, black & white, vivid colour, background, foreground, technicality, client satisfaction etc Gradually your liking and disliking start taking place into your photograph and gradually your photography career take off as per your choice of satisfaction. 

Let's discuss the few important satisfying factors for a photographers
  • Lots of beginner photographers post their photos on the social media platform and only likes and comments always satisfy them. They are not concerned with the quality of photographs but satisfied with artificial comments and liking. Think about this. 
  • Few photographer are very good investors, they love investing in the expensive photography kit but they are least concern about using this expensive kit. Recently I met with an Oldman having 7-8 cameras (expensive)  but hardly used them, They are more satisfied with this royal feeling of carrying expensive kit. 
  • Few photographer are always satisfied with those photographs which communicate so well to the people, for them technicality hardly matters, they are not concern with the framing or better editing skills.
  • Client is the God for all the professionals, businessmen etc. Here the concern is to satisfy the clients as per his requirement. A clients finalise photoshoot for his products, property, locations, plans, company etc as per his requirement.  Here photographer is only concerned with the clients requirement once he satisfied his client then only he can generate the balance payment invoice. Very important
  • For some photographer, capturing the celebrities, rich and famous etc is a top priority, for them capturing royal people in a stunning ways is only the concern which can dignified, beautify them in front of the masses.(posters, ads campaign etc)
  • For some photographer capturing rare species is only the concern, spend lots of time, energy to shoot rarest species make them more satisfy because they are more into brand building of their photography image and career. Great. 
  • For some photographer, shooting technically is more satisfying them like they will capture the subject in perfect light condition, perfect framing, great content etc and up to the certain limit, their photographs convey the message loud and clear to the masses and classes. For them perfection is more satisfying them. Wonderful.
Conclusion - You must know which is more satisfying and How long your satisfying factors  validates your photography career.  Find your correct satisfying content. Work for it.

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