“Used in the right way, photos provide the landscape artist with powerful inspiration and artistic opportunities.  Used incorrectly, photographic references can actually be more of a creative hindrance than a help.  The trick is understanding what your camera can and can’t do.  It can record details and moments in time that might otherwise be inaccessible or fleeting.  But you must supply the creativity, the fresh perspective, the inspired idea.  You must select, compose, and edit your subject matter into a beautiful landscape.”
