“He tells me of a boy called Johnny Marr, who lives in Wythenshawe and who ‘is a much better guitarist than me.’”

Does anyone else heavily record/document their conceptualisation process for is it more of a mental process for you? Or do you simply tend to ‘shoot what you see’ more-so than pre-plan images?
I’m trying to find out more about others’ process.Would anyone possibly be willing to share how they go about this?
Oh, the joys of digital Photography. I’ve temporarily taken down the image from earlier. Since (I believe) I’ve discovered that my monitor wasn’t completely calibrated correctly, the image is in fact more exposed that it appeared to me (and not how I intended the outcome to be). Going to sort out my monitor, do a quick edit and hopefully re-upload in the morning.
That quote was said today by my Visual Research lecturer, Same Vale. Initially it may appear to be quite a peculiar thing to say, but when backed up with reason, like Sam did to, it is an interesting idea.
He reasoned that whilst what is seen may not in fact be a complete truth, it is not an absolute lie. That for whatever is depicted to be so, there has to at least be something in front of the camera.
In a way it could be said that this is merely somewhat twisting the definition of 'to stage something' and 'to fake something', however I feel it’s an interesting thought.
I happened across this today while travelling back from a lecture.
