I knew that the picture was there. The moon was shining beautifully over the sea.
As I watched the scene, I realized there was no foreground interest. A big log was lying about 200 meters away.
It took a little help, sweat and effort from a friend. And then the composition could be made.
The result was this:
Then last Sunday there was a sermon on VISION. If you have a vision, you can work towards it, you can create it. Disney saw Disneyland before it was there…
So yes, if you see the picture before you create it, you’ll be able to find the materials you need. It all makes sense. And yes, all it takes is effort, sweat and a friend or two.
So in photography, as in life, we need to:
Know what we want to achieve (Vision).
Focus on our vision. (Usually through goals)
Find what’s needed to compose the final picture. (What’s left out of the frame and what is kept)
Go out and do it.
And yes, have fun along the way.
