Notebook of ideas

posted on 6th of september, 2007

I have seen one photographer to draw a preliminary sketch before making photos. She has explained that it makes her feel immediately if the image can look well, even before preparing all the set. The mentioned photographer makes incredible preliminary sketches with pastels, trying to make the picture to the latest detail.

I am not able to draw so well... and frankly, I must confess I would´t have probably so a lot of patience for making detailed picture.

Before I have written down description of ideas with words in my notebook, now I quickly outline the idea and I add just some words like the color of objects or background.

I enjoy this way, it is faster and no one
of my ideas is "forgotten" as all these sketches are kept in notebook of ideas.

Peter, I agree that during walking and in nature a lot of good ideas come out :-)

My way: I always take a little notice book with me (mostly). Sometimes Ideas come like a flash during walking, fishing etc. and then I draw a fast scribble of my idea for an illustration or a photo. I has been useful in the past, because this ideas are often away for ever, when the day is over.
