"The world is waiting for men with vision - it is not interested in mere pictures." --Charles HawthorneMore than a year ago I published a post called Photographic Vision - What It Is And How To Get It. I created that piece because there is so little information out there on what is (in my opinion) the most essential thing one needs to have in order to be a successful photographer. Without vision, there are no great photographs.

I define vision as a vivid and imaginative conception. It is a clear and creative idea. It is having a notion and then making it a reality.

But that is not enough. You must also be creative. You must be an artist. You must use your imagination to its fullest. You must put a piece of yourself into the image somehow. You have a point-of-view that is unique to you, and in some way that needs to end up in your photographs.
