CHAPTER 4 Visualization

CHAPTER 4

Visualization

Image

THE CONCEPT OF PHOTOGRAPHY as a form of nonverbal communication is a philosophical one. But it’s a very important truth, based on the fact that we all show our pictures to others and we all want to get a response. That alone proves it is indeed a form of communication.

The meaning of composition and its specific elements are theoretical. Both are forerunners of actual photography. They form the foundation for fine photography—and for all visual art—and they must be understood by all creative photographers.

The actual making of a photograph starts with visualization, which is comprised of four steps:

  1. Photographic looking and seeing (two very different things)
  2. Composing an image
  3. Envisioning the final print
  4. Planning a complete strategy to attain the final print
