One thing you will hear a lot when you get into making good photographs is storytelling. Images should tell stories. Collections of images tell stories. What story are you trying to tell in your work? For the most part, I agree that good images tell a story, but other times great images are just pretty but that’s for a different day. In this week’s podcast, we talk about the way to tell a better story in your photographs and how to approach storytelling in your images. Don’t worry there are not technical notes to take or settings to learn, as storytelling has little to do with the gear.

As always, I hope you and yours are safe, and please remember to keep safe and wear your mask.
