A story’s weight lies in its message, not in how much long or short it is.
Many can tell a life’s tale in few sentences while those who can’t spend a lifetime to create one. But I believe this doesn’t apply to photography because in one single frame, one can tell a story, without saying a lot.
You can show either one character or an entire cast in your pictorial-story, as I refer to call it. No need of any dialogue for them too.
The only question is: how do you place them up in one frame to tell a story?
So, I tried to picture a story once (or couple of times if I tell you precisely). Using Uzair’s toy cars collection, I placed them inside a frame to see what kind of stories they can tell (or show in this case).
Here are my attempts, with possible story titles:
Race Is On
Not So Fast
Run My Boys
Yes, you are right! Judging by their titles, you can easily placed them in the crime genre. But consider them as my playful attempt on a small scale.
So, did you enjoyed “reading” these stories?
