It is worth listening to Ridley Scott who gives good instruction in this clip below titled Life In A Day. It was part of a collaborative video project he started in 2010, the same year that the 10 City Bridge Run commenced as an idea.
Scott gives two good pieces of advice in telling a story through capturing an image:
- It must be personal.
- Capture what appeals to you as the photographer/curator.
Great advice from a master story-teller.
Tell your story through photo in our photo collaboration. Anyone can enter, and there is no cost to submit a photo.
“The Importance of Connection” is a photo collaboration on the theme of a ‘human bridge’. The best 100 photographs selected from among this collaboration will be captured in a book called “Life Bridge: The Importance of Connection”.
Find out more details or submit an entry here.
Photographs might express one of four particular themes:
- Tell a story. Provide an interpretation of “a human bridge”,
- Bridge the Imagination Gap,
- Connect the Near and the Far, and/or
- “With empathy comes connection”.
Connect like you give a damn! It won’t be the same without you.
