Looking through your camera’s viewfinder and snapping what is in front of you is easy once you have mastered the technicalities of photography, but knowing how to see the image you are about to capture creatively is a skill that does not come naturally to all aspirant photographers. The good news is that while photographic vision may not be an inherent ability, it is a skill that can be developed through studying visual principles and developing a visual vocabulary.
