The following is a collection of thoughts regarding the concept of a ‘story telling’ image. Rather than an in-depth instructional tutorial, the following is more of a rhetoric that seeks to persuade and inspire you to develop your creativity and to start taking shots that matter; shots that communicate something meaningful to the viewer. Creativity is something that we all possess; it is inherent and doesn’t need to be learned in the same way as the technical side of photography. Even though you may initially lack technical and editing expertise, I encourage you to use what you already have, your creativity.
The advent of digital photography has revolutionized the way we do things bringing unparalleled convenience into our lives. Despite the benefits, the ‘digital revolution’ has resulted in people putting less thought into their shots. Nevertheless, it is clear that our drive to create meaningful and powerful images stands the test of time.
