You ever wonder what makes all the iconic photos of yesteryear so interesting? I have often pondered this question. Oftentimes we as photography aficionados we concentrate most of our time and attention to the technical side of photography. Trying to set the camera with the correct exposure, looking for the right lens etc. etc... Theses actions can interruptions from the our surroundings which brings me back to the subject of this post. Storytelling!
Interesting images must always tell a story. The viewer must feel an emotion. In street photography life is happening all over us and stories are constantly taking place. We need to be observant and spot a story.
We can get lucky sometimes and capture a couple breaking up as could be the story on the image on this image.
