Does the photo tell a story?

Does the photo tell a story

Most often, the difference between a photo you remember and one that you quickly forget depends on whether the photo tells a story.

In strong photos, the story is revealed at first glance, and it is self-contained. In the best images, the story evokes an emotional response from the viewer. I believe it’s that emotional response that ultimately makes the image memorable.

  • Try asking these questions as you evaluate images to decide if the image tells a story:
  • At a minimum, does the photo make a statement that you can articulate?
  • Does the photo elicit an emotion? In other words, can you relate to the subject or the situation?
  • What could be changed in the image to give it a stronger story or message.
