Visual Storytelling Through Photography
Storytelling. In a day an age where a photograph is no longer a dime a dozen, but a dime a billion, it is more important than ever to create impactful and engaging photos that truly draw the viewer. To me, that comes down to the “story” that your image is trying to tell.
My name is Colby Brown and I am incredibly excited to share with you something I am very passionate about, visual storytelling. Many of you have probably seen some of the ON1 videos I have created over the years, but for those that don’t know me, I am a landscape, travel and humanitarian photographer that has been working in this industry for the last 11 years. I have taught photography for National Geographic, lead photo workshops all over the globe and have worked with some of the biggest companies in both the tech & travel throughout my career.
WHAT ARE GOING TO COVER?
- What is “visual storytelling” & what aspects of a story are involved?
- In-field practices to help you identify specific elements that can help you add drama, emotion and depth to your images
- A deep-dive into the role post processing plays when it comes to creating dynamic and engaging stories/images that pull your viewers in and capture their attention
- Learning how to harness your “creative vision” so that the choices you make out in the field are representative of the creative style you hope to apply to your final images
