Storyteller's Blog Circle

I am so excited to be a part of this monthly educational blog circle with my fellow storytelling photographers! Take a look at my storytelling image and read about my thoughts behind it and then click on to the next amazing artist and so on... follow around until you have completed the loop! I hope you enjoy!

"So, what is a storytelling image?" You may ask. Well, that is a great question! Just as with reading a book that has a main subject and supporting elements, so does a  storytelling image. You will usually have a main subject ( or two) along with an supporting  enviornment and extra objects in the shot that help to tell you who they are, what they are doing and what they see. I love storytelling in my imagery, especially when documenting my family ( which is what I am doing most of the time) I always make sure to keep my camera in a central location so that I can be ready asap when I spot just the right moment.

The image that I chose this month is of my son  drawing on our family room windows. It's such a typical childhood thing to do and I knew I wanted to capture forever this nostalgic image. I knew right away that I wanted to convert it to bnw with all that light/shadow and texture that was present, so it was really just a matter of setting up how I wanted the composition.  and I really loved how the window sill was a leading line straight to him. 

 

 

My biggest advice to you when making storytelling images is to really make sure you choose the right angles and perspectives so that you can  accurately capture and portray your subject.... remember to think, who is the subject? What are they doing? What elements around me can help to support the subject and tell the story accurately? 

I am so excited to see what your favorite storytelling images are. Comment below with your link! Remember to follow this circle on to the next amazing artist for some great tips on how they shoot their storytelling images!  Next up is the amazingly talented Jen Lucas
