Envisioning Your Image | Tokyo | Travel Photography

The whole idea of envisioning the image you want, composing it in your head before you click the shutter -- that's not a load of bantha poodoo. It really helps.

It can happen really fast or you can take your time. It's up to you and your environment. Since I take a lot of lifestyle photos where people are moving, I'm used to envisioning quickly. In this photo in Tokyo, I was testing myself. I saw this scene while walking down a street, framed it up in my head, and in seconds took the photo without even looking through the camera. It's pretty close to what I imagined.
