I was so taken with the Weekly Photo Challenge theme this week that I couldn’t wait to look through my photos and try it. The theme ‘Threes’ is described as a three-picture story. It’s a way to help you think about storytelling with images, and I love the concept.
To create a three-picture story, gather:
1.An establishing shot: a broad photo of your subject.
2.A relationship: two elements interacting with one another.
3.A detail: a close-up of one part of your subject.
Here’s what I chose, though I may try this approach again in the future. I call this “Americans in Paris.”
Don’t judge my husband for the jaunty, sequined beret. We made him wear it for the shot. 🙂 My mother is an avid scrapbooker, so she knew exactly what shot she wanted for her page. We needed a picture face-forward, but also needed someone to take a picture of us looking at the Louvre in our berets. After a couple of confused conversations with other tourists, we finally found a couple from Texas. The woman was a scrapbooker, too, so was more than happy to take the shot my mother described. You should see the finished scrapbook; it’s a work of art worthy of the Louvre.
So, what do you think of this 3-picture story approach? It is something you would try?
