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?
