Tutorial - Visual Storytelling


The goal of this tutorial is to share with you my storytelling techniques through images. I also want to give you some tips that helped me to find my style and create my own code.

To do so I will describe my creative process, show you the questions I ask myself and how I apply these techniques to my work.

With this tutorial comes 253 photos that you can use to study composition, lighting, color and black & light values. I will use some of them to illustrate my process.

Don’t worry I won’t talk specifically about photography. I will just use the same art/narrative principles that can be applied in any kind of visual art discipline.
