Visualization

If you are a parent, you have probably stumbled on many instances when you wish you had a camera in your hand. How many times have you looked in the rearview mirror of your car and seen the soft, round cheeks of your sleeping toddler in the backseat. Wouldn’t it be great if all you had to do was blink and a photo would be recorded with all the emotion you were feeling about that person at the moment? Actually, practice in visualizing these moments makes it far more likely that you can capture them in the future. As you go about your day and see children around you, compose and mentally click off a few frames; it will make you a better photographer when you actually get the camera in your hands.

In an ideal world, you would just come upon “the moment” and photograph it, but those kinds of happy accidents are few and far between. It is more likely that you either won’t have your camera with you, or that the moment you turn toward the subject, all spontaneity dissolves, and the magic moment disappears, only to become another beautiful memory.
