Here is a sketch I made before shooting the image for the play. W is for white, B is for black. I had to sketch it out because the idea was so complex I needed to know that it would work. This is not usually the way I shoot. For me, photography is about 'discovering beauty in unexpected places', about finding things by accident, about showing the world something I had unearthed. This way of shooting is completely different, but I have to say I enjoyed the process. While making the image in photoshop some of the elements I had in the sketch really didn't work so I changed them. But all in all, the finished product looks much like I had sketched in my mind.
We can move through live in two such ways as well, either discovering new things at random as we go, or by sketching out a rough plan and then trying to make that vision a reality. We just have to be prepared to modify our plans along the way, and not get upset with the final picture doesn't look like the sketch!
