"Those of you who have followed my writing and photography
know that I’m a huge proponent of storytelling in photographic imaging.
For those of you that are new to my writing, in my mind a professional-level photograph consists of three components: technically sound (although a quality photo doesn’t always have to be technically perfect); an organized composition (without that your photograph is a lazy mess, and a viewer feels that... even subconsciously); and most importantly, the photograph must convey a message to the viewer, which is ‘the story’.
Storytelling photography takes effort. I won’t lie to you. The good news is- You CAN learn this skill!
The more you practice what you will learn, the better you will become at it.
Eventually, it will become second nature- like riding a bicycle… You’ll be shooting storytelling photos without even realizing that you’re doing it!
With this guide, I’m going to get you there."
