Story telling part II

Today some more images from the workshop with Ingrid where we combined different light sources, gels, smoke and props to get a more interesting setup, by adding a small prop, in this case a doll, the story telling part is enhanced a lot more for this series.

Often getting the story telling part correct in a photoshoot can be the most difficult thing, always remember that everyone can shoot a model in crappy light, getting the light correct will be more difficult, now styling and posing makes it a bit more harder but getting an image to make the viewer think “what’s going on” or at least making the viewers interested in a shot, is often regarded as one of the most difficult things.

The “trick” I often learn the attendees of the workshops is to really think about a story, not just combine “stuff” but when you shop around for props already try to have the story in your head, but do remember (as mentioned in the previous blogpost) it’s not about a typed out story (that’s always cool of course), but the “suggestion” is often more than enough.

Ok let’s stop talking and give you some images 😀
