As I looked through the 11,000 images you submitted for “Chasing Moments,” I felt like I was travelling around the world with you. You showed me so much diversity, beauty, hope, and the fragility of life. It was nothing short of amazing.
The photos that caught my eye didn’t just feature amazing lighting and composition, but they also told a story. Storytelling in photography means producing pictures that communicate, that convey information, that connect us to universal values. Of course, sometimes this is easier to do in a collection of pictures rather than in a single image. But very often, the same thought process used to produce groups of pictures that relate to each other can also apply to and strengthen individual pictures. Think about how you can add mystery, emotion, or an element of surprise to your frame. When you can elevate your images to work on more than one level, the entire story is strengthened.
