All Photography Dreams are Nightmares

Photography Dream or Nightmare

Every so often, I have vivid dreams about photographing an amazing landscape bathed in fantastic light. The dreams are often very thorough, including the events preceding the shoot, scouting the location, the actual photography with the camera itself, and the sometimes the stoke of successfully capturing the moment. In the more frustrating dreams, I’m confused and fumble with my gear, or I’ve forgotten some crucial equipment, or I’m too late for the light, rushing around trying to find my spot and missing the moment. Those are actually the forgiving dreams. The worst are the successful shoots, because I always wake up extremely disappointed that it was a dream and all my photos have vanished.

  1. Jack,

    Too funny! I definitely dream about cameras, but only the gear aspect of it, like getting a camera I really want.

  2. I totally understand your frustration…happened to me just last week.
    That said, I think, it’s better to have dreamt and lost and than to never have dreamt at all ;).

  3. Oooooh, nice shot! Great comp and placement of the sasquatches and maiden. It has nice seaonal element and flow. Is this in that magical place I hear of ~ Wyoatia-antasia?

    Too funny – I guess you hope dreams don’t come true!
