Module 4


If a photo is really worth a thousand words, why do some photos require a lot of explanation?

Have you had the experience of sitting through a slideshow of a friend or family member’s latest vacation and hearing the long backstory for every photo?

Not every photo is really worth a thousand words.
It takes some strategy to make a photo communicate all on its own.

This week we’ll put this to the test…

Can you tell a story in a single image?

The usual storytelling approach is that of a “photo essay”. It’s journalistic, it’s great for events, and coverage of everyday life. We love to see how each picture strings together with the next in telling a bigger story.

But this week? We’re going for the “Story in One Photo” challenge.

Thematic shooting is the perfect way to supercharge your photo to stand all on its own. No travelogue required.
