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. He mus

Conveniency for the Photography


The word 'conveniency" is equally important as other important requirement of the photography's tools, tips, tricks, technical knowledge, creative point of view etc. This is also a big reason when you scrap the shoot's result and plan for re-shoot. Sometime beginner photographer take too much pain to shoot but end of the day results are not up to the mark. There may be an end numbers of reason of the scraping the shoot but sometime conveniency plays a major role in the reasons list. 

Conveniency help you to think better, act wisely, more creative options, better understanding, better results, better services etc.I hope you must have met to renowned photographer or must have taken the photography classes from them. I am sure you must have noticed their entire body language, their systemised way of teaching, their perfect attitude, their perfect notes to share, their perfect set-up for demonstration etc.  The reason is conveniency behind the entire show. 

Let's discuss about conveniency before the shoot

  • Must visit the location in advance, spend sometime and observe all the things whatever exist on location
  • Check location's positive or negative perspective and which is the best way to use location
  • Check light conditions of the location
  • If shooting in the studio, Please recheck all the Air conditioning, Music systems, Lights, toilet, light man, backdrop, props etc
  • Must check transport availability for your male/female etc so that they can reach on time
  • Must check all the cable connection with laptop, camera, lighting, trigger etc
  • Never keep location too far, which may consume more time of travelling, you may get tired. Avoid it
  • If location is too far then reach the location one day before
  • Take healthy sleep always before the shoot, you never know how long is the shooting day.
  • Have a habit to make a notes in advance, this is really helpful. Use smartphone's notes apps. 
  • Must check all the photography kit, memory card, battery, chargers etc 
  • Eat less, sleep well, Perform better
  • Seen wedding photographer, they shoot continuously and most of the time they keeps on pressing the Sutter button to capture one shot, not concern with the good quality photography because they haven't slept from the past of 2-3 days. Can you imagine this but it happens
  • If possible avoid continuously shoot. 
  • Plan for the best and prepare for the worst, that's life too

The purpose of writing this article, Put yourself in convenient zone to perform better for your photography, for your clients and portfolio too. Beginner photographer spend lots of time on travelling to shoot and miss the good light condition, miss the good wildlife and landscape shots etc. There is nothing bad in this, if you shoot in comfort zone. Here I would like to mention that every businesses are serving comfort to human life and its start from light to smart phone, cycle to aircraft, Food to fast food, fast communication etc. 

The more we add conveniency to our photography, more better results we take out. I hope this article is going to help you out for better photography.

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