Personality of a photographer?

Image
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

Superb SUN, A great light source

The light plays a major role in the photography profession. The photographer spent their entire life understanding the indoor and outdoor light, its reflection, it is travelling, it is falling, its impression etc. In another language, I would like to mention that light is a very important tool that gives better photographs. We all know that SUN is the biggest source of light everywhere or every place. Anybody who is trying to be a better photographer then starts reading the SUN and start chasing the sunlight.

Shoot Often, Delete often

In  the photography career, practice & experiment is major activity, One should always adopt this habit to improve the level of photography. But Here I would like to mention that practice is a major part of all professions. Our photography is based on practice and experiment as we all know. As long as we travel for the photography career, we become more habitual for practice and experiments. There is also one darkest side of too much practice and experiment for photography. That is maintaining storage, buying cloud space, maintaining external hard devices etc. This is one of the biggest problems, exercise etc rather than I must write that is the biggest headache but being a photographer we have to manage this also because back-up pays a lot to us.  What to do when we are practising and experimenting because day by day our data keep on adding to the storage devices. Let us follow a few important steps to maintain the storage.  Shoot often and delete often  - When we are shooting

In India, Festival plays a major role for all the religions. Festival starts from the August and finished on Holi in March. These months covers these festivals like Krishna Janmashtami, Eid, Diwali, Christmas, Lohiri, Bhai Dooj, Raksha Bandhan, Karwa Chauth etc The most important attraction in the cities are markets, malls, roads, hotels, homes, temples etc are fully decorated and the entire festival time becomes moment of happiness for all the family, religion etc. My India is famous for unity in diversity and We all Indian are proud of this.

Candid Photography ?

  Before we proceed, we need to understand the meaning of candid photography, any useless expression, movements capture cannot be CANDID PHOTOGRAPH. Let's understand candid photography in detail. What is candid photography - In simples language, unplanned, no poses defined, no direction, no photography tips and tricks, captured is called candid photography. Where you are lucky enough to get the best expression, movements, and any other poses that defined unplanned shot or candid shot. Most important requirement - I have seen lots of candid shots, but there was a scary facial expression, no attraction, no expression and there was no storytelling at all. The motive of candid photography is without whispering to anyone, you capture a better shot even letting them know your subject. That is yours winning. Pressing the shutter button unnecessarily may spoil your camera shutter, you waste your time and energy and you come back without capturing a better shot. The best way to capture

When photography becomes photocopy

    Recently I have met a few beginner photographers and came to know about their job profiles, they are working for an e-commerce company and shooting their products for online selling. Their job starts from morning to evening and ends up shooting same product line, same light condition, same treatment, same clients, same requirement, same indoor photography etc they are getting very less salary for doing all these jobs. In my language, they are photocopying the images and they are very far away from the photography (sorry for that).  In this job scenario, they are only shooting the same requirement and not exploring the creative part of photography. they are bound to follow the same angle, same colour correction, same treatment etc From my point of view, photography cannot be done on a job basis because it is a creative world and not having any dead ends. We photographers are very passionate about the subject, lights, angle, weather condition, indoor high-quality lighting system,
