Squam Narrative Truth with Amy Gretchen

One of my sessions at Squam Arts Workshops this year was Narrative Truth, a photography workshop with Amy Gretchen.

Some key tips from Amy in this session:

– A good photograph will have a clearly defined subject and background. This sounds very obvious but it made me think a LOT!

– Deliberately include or exclude things in an image to tell a story more powerfully

– A narrative quality to a picture makes people think about it more and creates interest.

– Practice, practice, practice and practice some more.

– Think about if you only had ONE picture to tell the story of an event or moment, what would it be?
