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.

Shooting People with Glasses

  The Glasses, Goggles, Spectacles are the great fashion accessories for a fashion world, models and photography too. Glasses increase the grace of the people not only for himself or herself but according to photography point of view it changes the people's entire outlook. Which is really a great tool for people photography. But shooting people with the glasses is also a tough job sometimes it really irritates you to shoot when you open the photographs for the post-processing and you notice lots of problems like reflections, scratches, fingerprints, strains, out of focus etc and you have no option left. This problem can scrap your entire photoshoot and your client can ask to reshoot and Reshoot is a nightmare for all the photographers. I hate to reshoot.

Beginning for the Macro photography

Macro photography is one of the favourite subjects of the beginner because macro photography introduces the extreme close up shot of the insects, flowers and other smallest living or non-living things etc where the insect and other sizes look bigger than the actual size of the subject.

Composition Techniques matters a LOT

The one and only one thing is COMPOSITION TECHNIQUE always reshape your subject, always gives new energy to the common subject, always speak from a different angle in a new language. I hope you agree with this, you can not always hunt/create/explore for the different subject but your different composition technique will always create something new, energetic, creative shot. Photographers never ever try to capture those existing thing which is visible to all humans but He always captures which is visible to him only by creating strong composition techniques. All the existing things are common for all the people but strong compositing technique converts that common thing into spacial, stunning, wow photographs. It purely depends on the photographer's creative eye.  I hope, most of the creative people watches Hollywood films and most of the Hollywood filmmaker uses the same locations but every time they compose the shot in different composition, angle etc and the entire shot look ama

It is ok with it because following other photographer's work is not at all wrong. But observe yourself that one day you will be a photocopier rather than photographer.
