Storytelling Photography | PictureCorrect

Storytelling Photography | PictureCorrect | Serious Play | Scoop.it
We all have emotions within us and a careful shot of a scene can make us laugh, cry or even angry. This is the magic of a photo that tells a story.

When a person feels an emotion out of anything, process or event, the person will hardly be able to forget that specific thing, process or event. May it be a good, positive or even negative feelings. Same holds true when a person sees a photograph. The fun part with a photograph is that it “always” tells us a story, actually there can be multiple stories that can be associated with a photo. But it is in the mind of the photographer to “direct” or “channelize” the minds of the viewers to a particular, strong and appealing stories. And if the photographer is not successful in this endeavor than the photograph loses its distinctiveness and falls under the “normal” category.

As any other properties of storytelling, a photo should comprise of 1 or more of 5 elements. Read the full article to find out more about these characteristics:

I think taking pictures during trips is important, but I think it's equally important to remember to put the camera down at times too. Take in the moment. Smell the air, look deeply at your surroundings, listen to what's going on around you and put that moment into your memory.
