My Photo Editor Mind – Pt. 5 Halfway Point Review
Wednesday, October 19, 2016
Let’s say you have decided this is a 6-month project; the halfway point (3 months into shooting) is a great time to assess where you are. Let’s suppose you have been shooting this family who, due to the recession, has lost jobs and their home. Take a hard look at what you have shot. Maybe you have great shots of the mom and dad, but do you have the family together? Is there enough emotion to truly capture their struggles? Is there enough visual variety? Have you truly captured their essence? Is everything shot from the same distance? Have you captured relationships?
Do a rough photo edit to see where you stand. Do you have an opening shot? A sense of place? A closing shot? Is the arc in your story working? Take a critical look at your images now; this will truly help your storytelling in the long run.
