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

Sometimes, hate to hear!

It's been almost 10-12 years of working as a professional photographer, worked successfully for so many renowned, medium segment and small clients. thanks to all for giving me a great opportunity. Today I am writing this article based on the interaction with the clients which often takes place before the shoot or moreover Its a deep discussion where clients guide photographer to shoot as per their photography knowledge. That advice from the clients sometimes I hate to hear. It is a tough time for all  photographers  to respond to the clients.  I am sure, every professional photographer must have gone through this situation. The beauty of this situation is to listen and follow the photography tips from your clients, which is sometimes very hilarious. It purely depends upon the photographer's intellectual knowledge to convert a client's opinion into the right direction of photography. Please never ever try to teach your client but share your correct knowledge to make him unde

They do not need anything in their smartphones but they only required a good camera who can capture them nicely everywhere to share with their friends.

Frame per second, FPS?

What is the FPS? I am sure most of the photographer and videographer must have heard this word FPS. Well, FPS full foam is FRAME PER SECOND and its refer frame rate and it is used to measured how many frames are captured in one second. I am sure whenever you have bought your DSLRs and camera seller must have introduced the option/feature called FPS or frame per second.  In still photography, it refers to how many images can be captured in a burst. Let's discuss FPS's advantages (Photography and Videography) and how this feature can support for better and improvement in photography.  Advantages (Photography) - FPS feature supports you to capture 6-7 shots by the shutter button is depressed once . It means if your subject is speedy or fast-moving then these features allow you to shoot 6-7 photos of the subject in one single go. Mostly sports photographer use this feature and they buy only those cameras who can capture 7-8 shot or more in one single go. If you choose the small re

Shooting Butterfly is an ART

Finding a butterfly is a great object to shoot.  I tell you shooting a butterfly covers lots of other photography genres like Macro, Speedy subject, Nature, Species etc. This assignment grooms you as a better photographer. Now how can we shoot the butterfly beautifully?  Let us discuss the few important tips to shoot the butterfly.  Know the location - Find out the garden, national park, butterfly park etc where different types of butterfly can be seen or can be captured. This is your first job to do, now take the Google help to hunt.  Lens type (macro VS zoom) - I do not advice to carry macro lens like 100mm, 85mm, 50mm etc. The reason is whenever you go close to the butterfly to shoot then the butterfly will definitely fly away, these butterflies are so scary from everything even they do not sit at the same place for so long, keep moving here and there, so this in this fastest situation macro lens fails to shoot. Here I suggest always carry a ZOOM lens like 70-200mm, 55-300mm, 150-6

What is Over-Saturation/Vibrance ?

Sometimes ignorance of the colours, Ignorance or less knowledge of the Hue, saturation and luminous can kill all your photography project and your efforts to shoot. Understanding the colour and skill of colour correction actually add your extra addition to creativity. Most of the beginner photographer set the colour option "VIVID" in their camera, Always keep on shooting on this mode But they don't know that they are killing their photos and convert their images into UNNATURAL PHOTOs. Well, sometimes these mistakes teach them better and practice always wins.  What is the saturation or vibrance in the photograph -  Increase in the intensity of colour and add the higher saturation or make your photo more vivid called over-saturated/vibrance . Lower the colour saturation goes towards the GREY and make photograph more communicating.  It takes time to understand the correct colour management, In the beginning every beginner photographer always attracts to the VIVID colour mode

Importance of a camera STRAP ( Side or Shoulder Strap)

This article is not about photography's article, tips and tricks, lighting and others. This article is about one of the important photography accessories called Camera's SIDE, SHOULDER, SLING  STRAP. I have seen so many beginners/hobbyist photographer hanging their camera in their neck and suffer from the neckache or other problem.  There are so many straps are available in the market like HAND STRAP, CROSSBODY STRAP, Side strap, Neck strap ETC  and also available in different materials like cotton, nylon, leather etc and one can choose as per their conveniences and budget etc But I strongly advised to avoid the neck strap to hang your camera and its weight spacially when using heavy lenses.  See the below-posted image                      Why mostly photographer uses the neck strap? I guess the reason is to use the neck strap is always comes free with the camera body. Mostly photographer avoids buying a new camera strap and used the freebies . Here, I would
