How to tell a really good story VISUALLY
A photo essay is very simply a collection of images that are placed in a specific order to tell the progression of events, emotions, and concepts. But, simple is not always exciting, so think way outside of your normal box! Storytelling needs to be interesting whether its done with the written word or as in our case, VISUALLY
If your topic is more serious …. like SUSTAINABILITY Be sure to ask questions and follow the story from beginning to end.
Dont just capture the big show, go behind the scenes to capture all the details that lead up to the big show.
If you will be using props, be sure to bring them to school. They can be stored in the classroom. If you need specific people to pose in your pictures, say teachers, ask ahead of time for when they are free. DONT INTERUPT THEIR CLASS! Stay true to your theme. If you get stuck trying to get all 24 photos, ask for suggestions. Someone elses perspective is always valuable.
You will take 24 photos in manual mode You will edit your photos in Photoshop – you can work in color or black and white You can use a poem or song lyrics for inspiration or see list of topics on handout You will import best photos into Adobe Premiere to create a slide show You will need to give your essay a title Remember to tell a great story VISUALLY!
