Visual Storytelling – Free Quick Guide

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

This guide was written for us by a professional photographer from Chicago, Illinois, in the United States. Her name is Karthika Gupta.

This is her first Quick Guide for us, and we would love to hear your feedback. Feel free to shoot me an email.
