People let the photo tell a story

posted on 8th of may, 2008

When you add a person or people to a photo it changes the whole picture.

It allows the photo to tell a story.

If we took a photo of a piece of playground equipment like a teeter totter we would look at it and see something the children would like to play on and have fun with.

But if you add a person to the photo,

All of a sudden, we see the fun she's having, we feel the motion of the teeter totter and we can almost hear the laughter from enjoyment she's having.

The many stories are told by adding people to the photos,

Everything from Fighter pilots,

To folk singers

So just for a change let the photo tell a story and instead of just an object photo, add some people and let it talk.
