New eBook – The Visual Storyteller

VST_Cover-Large

Some of the most powerful photographs tell—or imply—a story. Of course, not all of them do, but the ones that do seem to engage us in ways others don’t. Capturing a sense of story in our photographs isn’t easy, but it’s a good way to make our photographs stronger. Oded Wagenstein is a young Israeli photographer with a surprising number of publishing credits to his name already, and is a regular in National Geographic Traveler (the Israeli edition). The Visual Storyteller is his first eBook and it’s an excellent introduction to incorporating story into our photographs. I say it’s an introduction because storytelling is a really rich subject and Oded’s book was written as a primer for anyone wanting to either wrap their brains around this topic, or to begin selling their work to editorial markets, which is where Oded makes his bread and butter.

Beautifully laid out, The Visual Storyteller takes you from a discussion about what makes a good story-telling photograph, and the basic elements of storytelling, to how we incorporate that knowledge into our work. He goes on to discuss gear, light, composition, approaching people, and how to get your photographs published, including an interview with a National Geographic Editor-in-Chief. Beginners and intermediate photographers who travel with their cameras, or have an interest in pursuing work as travel photographers, will find value in this beautiful 78-page eBook.

The Visual Storyteller, by Oded Wagenstein is a downloadable PDF ebook published by Craft & Vision. For the next week it’s available for just $4 (discount codes below).

Awake Enough.

I was talking to a photographer recently who said something I’ve heard, in so many different words, from so many of us, including myself. She’s taking a trip, going somewhere epic, somewhere she’s obviously been dreaming about, a place that’s already well lodged into her heart and imagination even though she’s never been there. She […]

The Created Image Video Series, Vol 1.

When we decided to host an intimate, intensive weekend conference in Vancouver this summer, I was blown away by what an incredible experience it was. We spent two days together, and we all left exhausted, inspired, and changed. In all there were 10 sessions, and once we cut them and edited them together we had […]
