Let me just say these three things before I begin:
- I didn’t draw the image above
- I love Moleskin Journals
- I can’t draw my way out of a wet paper bag
Sketching photography ideas isn’t a new idea. Lots of famous commercial shooters rough out concepts using a paper and pencil before a shoot. But I can’t draw. My stick figures look like some kind of disfigured muppet.
But I keep trying. There is a full shelf of black moleskin journals in my office full of ideas, sketching attempts, and wedding concepts. In some cases the drawings are so unintelligible, it looks like they were written in some kind of cryptic code.
If any of you have any tips for me, I’d love to hear them. Until then, until I get better, I’ll be keeping my sketches to myself. If you are at all interested in seeing them, please share your sketching tips.
