Most of our contributors send single images like a still life, a picture of their cat, a nice landscape etc., all contents that frame a feeling, a memory of a beautiful day or something that caught the eyes because the light was particularly flattering.
Others tells a story not with a single shot, but with a series of images producing a photo essay.
Here is an example shot by Picker Giorgio Cosulich de Pecine. A multi-photo story is so composed;
1. first you have the introductory shot that is a wide shot. In the beginning of the story you will need a nice landscape, or a general view of the environment (indoors or outdoors) where your story takes place.
3. you might need portrait shots: position yourself so that the light hitting the subject is the most flattering. If shooting indoors be careful with the background that can be very messy. Tide up or use a shallow depth of field so to blur out the distracting details in the back
4. that decisive moment shot: to achieve this photo photographers need to know their subject, do research and planning the shooting: it is not possible to get the definitive photograph if we don’t know what we are looking for and where you have to be.
5. the end shot : closing the story with a final photograph.
