Seeing Photographs  –  Visualization

The term visualization refers to the entire emotional-mental process of creating a photograph, and as such, it is one of the most important concepts in photography.  It includes the ability to anticipate a finished image before making the exposure, so that the procedures employed will contribute to achieving the desired result.  This much of the creative process can be practiced and learned; beyond lies the domain of personal vision and insight, the creative “eye” of the individual, which cannot be taught, only recognized and encouraged.  — Ansel Adams
