Telling a Story with Photos
If you usually think about capturing a moment with a single photo, try using multiple shots to tell a story. A good starting shot is one that will introduce the viewer to the situation. Like any good storytelling, photo storytelling needs a beginning, a middle and an end. Don't be shy—take a lot of pictures including plenty of close-ups, wide shots, reaction shots and candid moments.

About the photo:This December 1959 photo by Thomas J. Abercrombie, taken in Anaktuvuk Pass, Alaska, captures a Nunamiut boy holding a mask made of caribou hide.
