So what makes a great photographer ?

There are many factors that can contribute to a photographer being considered great. Some of these include:

  1. Technical skills: A great photographer should have a strong understanding of their camera and how to use it to capture high-quality images. This includes understanding things like aperture, shutter speed, and ISO.

  2. Composition: The way a photograph is composed can greatly affect its impact and appeal. Great photographers know how to use elements such as line, shape, and color to create visually appealing compositions.

  3. Vision: A great photographer should have a clear vision for what they want to capture in their photographs. They should be able to anticipate and capture the right moment, whether that's a split second or a longer exposure.

  4. Creativity: Great photographers should be able to think outside the box and come up with creative and original ideas for their photographs.

  5. Attention to detail: Great photographers should be meticulous about the details in their photographs, ensuring that everything is in focus and properly exposed.

  6. Persistence: Photography can be challenging, and great photographers should be willing to put in the time and effort to get the shots they want, even if it means trying multiple times or waiting for the right moment.

  7. Empathy: A great photographer should be able to connect with their subjects and understand what makes them unique. This can help the photographer create more meaningful and authentic images.

  8. Passion: Above all, a great photographer should have a passion for their work. They should be driven to capture and share the world around them through their photographs.

I will discuss all of these points individually as we go forward on our journey. Hope you enjoy the trip !!
