tfttf667 – Visual Storytelling

flattr this!

667

Finally the detailed version of how to tell visual stories. Chris has been experimenting and now added a second layer to his Lightroom workflow, not just boiling down photos to the best of the best, but also sorting them into stories that can include pictures from all quality levels. He then uses Storehouse to put those stories together and present them. Have a look at his Ethiopian Photo Stories where he puts everything into practice.

Warning: you won’t find a single mention of selfie sticks in this episode!
