The Vision - The Art of Photography from idea to exposure.

We all know about the most important equipment needed for our craft; a Photographer’s Eye. The ability to see strong pictures in a multitude of situations is a fundamental skill to be nurtured, but actually we need to do better than that; on top of recognising the photographic potential in front of us there and then we need to be able to previsualise, predict and plan to be there camera in hand in the first place. It is rare to randomly stumble over the photographic opportunities we crave; somehow we need to improve our chances of being there, ready and waiting when the light is right. Where? What? How? That’s what The Vision is all about; the process that gives birth to a picture from the conception of an idea through to the point the shutter opens.

The Vision circumnavigates the globe as acclaimed writer and award-winning photographer, David Noton scrutinises in a detailed and logical progression how a successful photograph comes to be, from conception to exposure, and from Burma to Utah. Each Chapter examines the art of photography and takes you through the process from the spawning of an idea to the Decisive Moment when the shutter is opened.  Each chapter is interspersed with personal and witty diary entries from David’s travels along with photo essays and a Gallery that analyse how the photographs were achieved.

The way in which a photographer uses their eyes is fundamental and provides the primary message of this book, with an emphasis on inspiration, perception, composition, colour, light, the weather and planning. This book explains how to develop and nurture a photographic vision and contains:

  • Practical analysis and advice on how to translate photographic ideas into reality, accompanied by David’s striking photographs.
  • Core areas needed to create a clear vision, from coming up with the idea and finding the location to composition, weather and colour, ready for the ‘Decisive Moment’.
  • Personal journal entries, photo essays and a photo gallery further showcase David’s inspirational photography.
  • Diagrams as well as the finished photograph make it easy to see how the shot was achieved.

The Vision can purchased from davidnoton.com is personally signed by David and comes with a free set of four landscape greetings cards.
