Less is more when it comes to photography - Ian Badley tells us why pre visualising the image before lifting the camera to your eye is a good idea.
Here's his tip:
My advice is to pre visualise the image before lifting the camera to your eye. Think about what you want to include. It may be that your picture will tell the story better, if you take a number of different images. In the example given above, this may mean perhaps a picture of a portion of the heath, its changing textures, the grasses growing through the heather; perhaps just the trees, a lone tree maybe, the late evening light catching the leaves of a big pine; the tumbling stream by itself burbling over a few large stones or the verdant green leaves around; the ponies in situ, taken close up as a portrait. Maybe this would portray the essence of the scene far better than trying to include everything in just the one shot. What you leave out of your image can be just as important as what you put in. Remember, less can be more!"
