Guidelines for Telling a Story
Guidelines are for narrative.
A story has characters in action with a beginning, middle, and an ending. A lot of information can be given in a single photograph- location, time, and atmosphere aid viewer imagination. Pack as many story telling elements in one photograph as possible to develop an action.
1st photo: establish characters and location.
2nd photo: create a situation with possibilities of what might happen.
3rd photo: involve the characters in the situation.
4th photo: build to probable outcomes
5th photo: have a logical, but surprising, end.
