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.
You don’t necessarily have to take your photos with this in mind — you can simply use it as a guideline for choosing three photos you’ve already taken, or try cropping photos to focus on the key details.
I like to think that I’ve accomplished this challenge two times. The first time by taking a photo of three beers from the same brewery, and the second time by photographing each of these beers on their own. What say you? Have I successfully completed this week’s challenge? Let me know in the comments below.
