A Story Tellers Mind Set…


Do you have a story tellers mind set? Let’s see what do we need?

You will need to take a few close up shots, then the full object then even go pan the shot to show us the outer boundaries of where you are located.

All three of these perspectives together will give a visual package that brings the viewer into your world.


Focus…before you push the shutter…where do you want the readers eyes to land? You want them to see what you are feeling and at that moment.

Remember, visuals will expand your story, MORE than text.



If my storytelling is accurate…you would of detected we are at the Christopher Columbus Park in Boston.

Can you tell where my eyes were focused? Oh, the wisteria covered trellis was so delightful.

Christopher Columbus ParkΒ is one of the gems of Boston. Located between the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway and the Boston Harbor, the uniquely designed 4 1/2 acres serve as a neighborhood park, a community gathering spot, the site of festivals, summer movie nights and art shows, a must-see destination for tourists from around the nation and around the world, and the conduit for those who are ferrying to the Harbor Islands, which are part of the U.S national park system.Β 

I hear this is stunning at Christmas…be still my heart.

This is another segment of our Boston trip a few years ago.

Have a great day.

  3. Don’t you just love Wisteria? We can’t grow it here, but had our wedding pictures done at the Arboretum in Dallas just at the right time of year to capture it blooming…gorgeous.

  4. My favorite tool for storytelling photos is a diptych … or triptych. But I tend to use diptychs more. Your photos here are beautiful and thanks for the suggestions.

  5. I so love this, girl! I’ve always been a writer…until I got my blog. Now, I just feel like letting my photos tell the story. πŸ™‚

    These are gorgeous, by the way. I’m a sucker for green!

  6. I think storytelling is one of the hardest parts of photography. You can figure out how to work a camera, and you can figure out exposure…but storytelling is a skill that takes time to develop. Such a crucial part of photography. I hope I get there one day! πŸ™‚

  7. I bet that is stunning at Christmas. It’s stunning when it’s not Christmas!! Great pictures, as usual, but that first one made me start it was so pretty.

  8. Not only can you tell a beautiful story with your photographs but you can explain to us exactly how you did it…..You are a jewel and this is a beautiful place…

  9. Thanks for the tips. I am attempting to get better at shooting the details, then the whole object, then the location, just as you showed us in your beautiful example. Invariably I forget one or two of those!

  10. Telling a story with photography … yes, great tip! I try to do that, showing views from different angles, close-up and panoramic. What a beautiful park! Love the perspective in the first photo. Have a nice weekend πŸ™‚

  11. You definitely know how to tell a story with your images! And what fascinating stories you tell…they just keep coming….I’d love to see that much wisteria in one place. Beautiful!

  12. Wonderful to see “your” Boston or see it “your” way – excellent captured… πŸ™‚

    All the best are photos, which make words in our head or words which make pictures in our head – so we can’t ask for more… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    A wonderful weekend for You and Yours… πŸ™‚

Please share your thoughts...and thank you for the love!
