I recently finished a month-long course called Visual Storytelling with the amazing Molly Flanagan. It was tremendously inspiring. For four weeks, we read, watched, chatted and practiced our way towards becoming visual storytellers. This class was one giant step on my journey towards becoming the photographer that I truly want to be. The lessons sent me back looking at the work of great photographers of the last 100 years and challenged me to use new skills as I strive to make emotional and meaningful photographs. But it all comes down to story…. to people…. and to telling their stories through one image…. or a series of images. Helping people to remember a moment in time, an experience, a community, a relationship or a special place – it’s what I want to do!
We finally have had a week without snow – so it was time for ice cream! A moment in time…I want to remember that they love to share their ice cream(& germs), that Z & E don’t care that their faces are covered in ice cream, that Z skips with huge leaps, and that they will hold hands and laugh together.
“There are stories all around you, just waiting to be told….” I can’t wait to tell them!
