What is Picture Reading?

We all receive mental impressions when looking at a picture or photograph. What story is the picture telling you? On the surface we tend to 'read' facial expressions or others things about the face, the person's attire, their body language or posture, and what they are doing in the photograph to develop an opinion about what is happening. If you spend time picture reading its possible imagine a story about the person, place or thing in question.

Taking it a step further, Photo reading is Psychometry; you are focusing on a picture and getting impressions. Working with the photo of someone you do not know is often a interesting way to develop your skills, as you are unbiased. Relax and listen to your thoughts as you hold the picture in your mind. What impressions do you get?

Anybody here interested in practicing photo readings is invited to participate on this board. One of our members 'The Captain' has also quite rightly pointed out... please leave your feedback if you have been read as it helps readers improve their accuracy and technique.
