This post is one in a series on how to create a compelling series of images that convey a sense of place and tell a story.


 

CASE STUDY: SUNSET DINNER BY THE SEA

Next time you’re taking photos, rather than trying to capture everything in a single image, take several detail shots to flesh out your story.

Have a look at the images in this case study:

  • Sunset over the sea
  • Artwork, with a hint of the set dinner table
  • Candles lit…
  • Close-up of starter course

Do you see how each image tells part of the story? Each of these images is a single idea. By combining several images together, a story can be created.

TIPS TO GREAT DETAIL SHOTS:

  1. Vary the camera angle in each shot. Shoot up, down, out, across, or through a subject.
  2. Frame your subject tightly to omit clutter. Reveal part of the subject.
