The Art Of Tasting (T-Vision):
Click One Of The Five Senses Below To Continue.
The term T-Vision is being used for the type of tasting used in Outdoor Eyes since tasting is directly related to seeing. When a sample is tasted, there is an object related to that taste that can be seen such as an apple, a piece of chocolate, a stick of spearmint gum or a drink of orange juice. By tasting, you can visualize the object that is in your hand.
Now, don't jump rapidly to conclusions, you are not about to start tasting dirt, leaves, tree bark and wildflowers. By learning the relationships of taste, you will sense when there may be an OTG Photography opportunity.
What Really Is The Art Of Tasting?
The use of T-Vision really relates to the wildlife tastes. What attracts wildlife into certain areas and not into other areas? One of the necessary elements to wildlife survival is food and the taste sense relates directly to the wildlife's preference of certain food and the areas that they frequently visit. If you wanted to locate a beaver, a pond with an aspen, poplar, birch, maple, willow or alder tree nearby would be a probable area that a beaver might be living. So, as you can see, a little more knowledge of nature accompanies the use of the taste sense. If you approached some fruit trees, there might be a chance to see some Cedar Waxwings passing fruit back and forth to one another. By using T-Vision and the knowledge of the type of food wildlife prefers, gives you an edge in locating an OTG Photography opportunity. When you see the birds, frogs, deer, fox, turtles, etc., notice the type of vegetation that surrounds the area that they are in. You don't even have to even know the names of the trees, shrubs, wildflowers or plants. Just remember what they look like along with the types of wildlife seen and you will increase the likelihood of other OTG Photography opportunities.
How The Five Senses Relate To OTG Photography:
There is a tremendous amount of information to remember about the nature when experiencing the outdoors. The easiest way to learn is by using all of your five senses. If you happen to capture some great OTG Photography, use your five senses to remember that moment and all the elements around you. You can
never forget the smell of that great beach day with the ever present salty air (S-Vision). You can never forget that great beach day when you packed a perfect lunch (T-Vision). You can never forget that great beach day when you listened to crashing waves on the shore (H-Vision). And you will never forget that great beach day when at the end of the day you watched the perfect sunset (P-Vision). Now use all the same senses and techniques to remember a great OTG Photography moment. What was the weather like? How does the day feel? What time was it? What does the day smell like? Are there flower smells in the air? What does the dirt beneath your feet feel like? Take all your senses and use them to capture your OTG Photography moment. You will be able to recall those feelings much better than trying to remember every technical and scientific name of every plant, tree, wildflower or cloud around you. Now, whenever you explore a new area with your camera, dig into the memory banks of your five senses to produce a gut feeling about what OTG Photography opportunity might exist. And if your gut feeling indicates that an OTG Photography opportunity exists, HAVE YOUR CAMERA READY. You won't be disappointed!

Sunfish Waiting For The Tide To Come In At Wellfleet Harbor On Cape Cod.
This Sunfish is ready and waiting for the tide to come in a bit so it can go for a sail at Wellfleet Harbor. I loved the vibrant colors of the sail against the deep blue water and the interesting cloud formations in the sky. What do you think?
