I love a good story. Don’t you?
My imagination flies when I see a photograph like this, especially when it’s a location that I’ve never been to.
This week our free Quick Guide is about how to tell stories with your photography.
A good story really adds to a good photograph.
In this guide you’ll receive some tips on—
- Documentary Style shooting versus a Preparation Style
- How to identify why you are “moved” or “inspired” to take a particular photograph
- How to plan your shoot to maximize your return
- Why having a “Plan B” is just as important
- How to use “Storyboarding” and choosing the “Hero Image” for a group of storytelling shots
- Why the technical basics matter
- Learning to recognize “Visual Cues”
- Injecting your personality into a storytelling photograph
- How embracing your mistakes can help you grow as a photographer
