What type of photographer are you?

We all have our very own ways of taking photos and reasons to do so. Let’s have a look at seven strange or not so strange types of photographers.

Pigeonholing people might be silly and unfair, but it’s so much fun! Here’s a truly unscientific approach to typecasting photographers.

The iPad photographer

What’s more suitable to take photos than a huge, flat device with a tiny lens and tiny photo sensor? Combined with a large screen that makes it easy to spot any flaw in the photograph, the iPad Pro (12.9 inch) is a sign of a real pro iPad photographer.

The lifestyle hipster

It's so easy and popular to make fun of the lifestyle hipster that he shouldn't be missing in this list. Not the photos are important, but that the camera looks good. Or better: that it makes him look good.

The manual-all-the-way photographer

He thinks automatics are for beginners, so he only takes photos manually - like a pro, you see. The problem is, it takes him ten times as long and he still doesn't get the exposure right. But Don Manuel (l) doesn't care, he has a trick up his sleeve: manual post-correction – of course he's shooting RAW.

The artist

Anyone can take perfect photos nowadays. If you really want to stand out from the crowd, you have to produce crap. But not just any old crap, it needs to be artistically valuable crap. Only the artist himself can decide what's artistically valuable and what isn't. Because all others just don't get it.

The pixel peeper

The pixel peeper carefully scrutinises his magnified photographs on the computer until he detects traces of image noise and chromatic aberration, leading to a devastating judgement about the camera or lens. It doesn't matter that no one wants to see the photo he took – he's only testing. After this test, he'll do another one. The life of the pixel peeper consists of test shots.

Mr. spray ‘n’ pray

Bust mode on and go. Turn once around your own axis, take ten steps forward and do it all over again. And then again. You see, less is less and more is more. One of the 3,000 pictures is sure to be the one. Just to be safe, everything is captured in both RAW and JPEG, with and without HDR, with open and closed aperture. After a successful day of photography, all 24,000 files are saved on the hard disk and never touched again.

The genius

Sensible, creative, surprising and technically top-notch. The genius is modest and delivers world-class photography without expecting fame or praise. In fact, there are only two people in this category: you and me. Although, on second thought, I might have to exclude myself. I must admit: I've behaved much alike most of the types I just described. I was a pixel peeper when I tested cameras and lost sight of what really matters; spray and pray was my preferred technique while I still believed I'd improve through practice alone; and I've also gone through phases where I wanted to do everything manually.

What about you?

Durch Interesse an IT und Schreiben schon früh (2000) im Tech-Journalismus gelandet. Mich interessiert, wie man Technik benutzen kann, ohne selbst benutzt zu werden. Meine Freizeit ver(sch)wende ich am liebsten fürs Musikmachen, wo ich mässiges Talent mit übermässiger Begeisterung kompensiere.

True that! Die Liste erhebt aber auch keinen Anspruch auf Vollständigkeit.

Ein echter Fotograf ist oder war zumindest alle davon.

Und ich? Ich bin der, welcher 24 Bilder die Sekunde macht und dann ein paar Tausend davon zusammen hängt 😉

Der WannaBe

Knipst ein paar Schnapschüsse mit seinem Handy und bearbeitet Sie danach mit der kostenlosen PS app für sein IPhone 8. Manchmal versucht er sich am Manuellen Modus, merkt dann aber schnell dass er keine Ahnung hat. Seine Bilder erhalten alle eine vignette und erscheinen auf Instagram.

Ich bin wohl ein manueller Lifestyle-Hipster. Wobei ich noch anmerken möchte, dass nebst der hübschen Erscheinung meiner X-T1 silber, ihr Understatement ein Vorteil ist. Bei meiner alten 5D gingen die meisten in Deckung.

Mir fehlt noch der Retro-Analog-Typ. (Ich vermute ein Comeback dieses Typs!)
