Do you see your image in your mind before you push the shutter button??

Should you?

Probably if you want to create more artistic and impressive images. Today’s photo art quote comes from Painter Diego Rivera

diego rivera quote

“I dream a lot. I do more painting when I’m not painting. It’s in the subconscious.” Diego Rivera

I feel a good amount of pre visualization can move your images to another level.

This brings to mind a thought to spend lots of time with other people’s images and artwork to spark ideas. Just remember that just like a computer GIGO. (garbage in = garbage out) Look to find great imagery and art to study. You will find that some of the ideas will mix and match giving you a whole new way of seeing and creating your photographs.

Arthur Rainville passed on an idea that I try to keep up with. Arthur suggests each night before retiring try to study an artist for about 15 minutes. That could mean quickly reviewing a prolific artist’s entire catalog or studying intimately one or two paintings. You can do this with books, magazines or the Internet. It is amazing how your brain will incorporate things studied just before falling asleep. Arthur is a true photographic artist always trying to push the bounds of wonderful image making. I admire him greatly.
