This week’s challenge from Michelle W.: In a nutshell, a three-picture story is a way to help you think about storytelling with images. To create a three-picture story, gather:
- An establishing shot: a broad photo of your subject.
- A relationship: two elements interacting with one another.
- A detail: a close-up of one part of your subject.
The Iowa State Fair is an annual tradition for our family. Just as I arrived this year, the street performing duo of Mango and Dango with their Flying Umbrella Ship rounded the corner of Grand Avenue (the main concourse). Mango, on stilts, led the procession. When she spied me taking her picture, I saw through my lens finder that she was headed toward me. Before I knew it, her feather duster was thrust at my lens. From the video link above, you can see that others meet the same fate when filming this talented duo.
