EXECUTING THE IMAGE

After the concept is developed as discussed in Chapters 1 and 13, the next step is to plan and execute the image. This is a very practical and important stage of image creation as you make decisions to accomplish the goal within the time, location, budget, and talent constraints you've been allotted or have allotted to yourself. Being creative within limitations is often more rewarding and productive than unfettered daydreaming about what isn't feasible or achievable. Don't regard limitations as negative—instead see them as parameters to work with rather than against.

Planning the Image

Before you go on a long trip, you plan it. Depending on where you're going and for how long, you pack differently. And if you're like me, you might make a checklist: passport, tickets, amount and type of clothing, photography equipment, and so on. I do this to be safe, prepared, and comfortable, which lets me concentrate on and enjoy the trip.
