Ernst Haas on Painting a Story - NYIP Photo Snack

By NYIP Staff on October 8th, 2014

In this week’s NYIP photo snack, we examine the importance of telling a story with each image you make.

Ernst Haas once said, “The whole point of taking pictures is so that you don’t have to explain things with words.”

Try to arrange your photographs as if you were unable to provide any context.

Paint a story with your camera.

You’ll soon realize that every photo is intended to tell a story.

What will your photos say?
