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.

SHADOWS plays an equivalent role.

Image
  This time, I am not going to discuss finding the great light, morning light, golden hour light, harsh light, soft light and other important light for the photography. Today, I will discuss the shadows, how to use the shadows to capture a better image. Like a coin, It has TWO sides one is obverse and second is the reverse side, in a same way photography has two sides, one is light and another second is shadow and both compensate to create a better photograph. Also, I would like to mention that shadows play an equivalent role as same as light plays in photography.  One must remember that shadows itself shape the light and draw the attention to the light and mix with the light to create an iconic photograph and create lots of interesting opportunities for a photograph to capture the stunning shot.  Let's discuss the few important tips to use shadows and add to the photograph.  Focus - The shadows help the viewer to focus on the darker part of the image and draw the  user's atte

We all know that we all are suffering through COVID19 epidemic. This epidemic situation affected all the businesses, all human being, killing people every day and must say almost everything. Day by day we are suffering through this very badly and where no positive hopes are visible easily because No COVID vaccination is launched positively in any country.  Now in this situation, there is a major impact on the business especially entertainment, sports and other industries etc. Now there is less business for Photographer, videographer, scriptwriter, fashion designer, fashion stores, actors, models, and other endless services providers.   Recently I have encountered one episode where my clients were asking me an 80- 90% discount for the product shoot. I was shocked to hear his pricing,  I said BIG NO and  I choose to walk out without discussing the project. Well,  This episode urges me to think about this situation and encourage me to write a small blog on this.  Now, this article is abou

Buying USED photography Gears, A good Idea

Image
The moment, we enter the world of photography as a hobbyist or amateur photographer and then we come to know the cost of photography equipment which is quite expensive to bear in the beginning. Most of us are students, dependent on the parents or no regular source of income. But what to do in this scenario because we have chosen our passion as a career. No bank ever provide support with any credit card, loan etc. Even no financial help from our friends at that time because we were at the same level at that time.  Even I faced this problem when I choose photography as a career. No financial support to buy a good camera and lens, anyhow I managed to buy my basic DSLR and lens. The moment, I came to know that this is just a beginning, in photography, you require different expensive lenses and other accessories for different photography genres to shoot better photography. That movement I thought to drop the photography career because "Photography is an expensive affair" But gradu

Close-up SHOTS

Image
Close-up shots are those shots who communicate with viewers so deeply. It is one of my favourite genres, where no background required only tight framing is required. Close shots mostly happen in film making, television production, still photography, macro photography, portrait, street, wild etc. Close-up shots display the deep details but do not include the broader scene at all means does not cover other content to create a story. Close-up shots speak much more or convey a strong message to the viewers.  Let's discuss how can you take a better close-up shot to give a new height to your photography.  Plan only Close-up shots - When moving to shoot portrait, street, wild etc then plan to shoot the only close shot, no to wide-angle shots, no background shots and no other long shots, only tight framing shot, only close shots. This determination will take good close-up shots out of you along with good details.  Zoom Lens - Must add zoom lens into your kit like 70-200mm, 18-105mm, 200-50

"Never leave the Location" I hope this title may sound you little different. But I assure you this is one of the important things to remember when you are on the indoor shoot or outdoor shoot. When I have understood this then I realize this importance of this topic, that improved my photography level. Maybe you will be a little confused about this topic and not leaving location how can help the photographer to improve your photography.  Let's discuss how "not leaving location can help"  Indoor Shoot - When shooting products, models, portrait and other. When the shoot is finished and you are about to pack-up. So here I advise that never ever pack up so quickly. Follow a few important steps before leaving the studio or location. Check all the photographs like carefully like focus, lighting, background and must check that you have shot the things as per your client's requirement. That part is very important if you leave the studio or location without checking
