AN EVENT MINI STORY

shoot during the week and

bring your top ten to class

SOME EXAMPLES OF MINI STORY COVERAGE BY FORMER STUDENTS

See Erika Schultz' High School Rodeo coverage

(has more than three phots, but a perfect example of mini-story coverage)

http://www.schwepkerphoto.com/schultz2.html

SOME RULES REGULATING MINI STORIES

Three photos (and only three) put togetherthat tell the story of an event

1. ALL THREE PHOTOS ARE COMPELLING AND ARE STRONG ENOUGH TO STAND ON THEIR OWN.

THAT MEANS THAT IF AN EDITOR IS NOT ABLE TO RUN ALL THREE PHOTOS,

EACH PHOTO WOULD BE STRONG ENOUGH TO BE PUBLISHED ALONE.

2. THERE IS A STRONG DOMINANT PHOTO

"The dominant photo does not have to be a context photo.

It may be a photo that is so strong

that is will command the readers' attention.

It may even be a closeup, but not a detail shot.

3. YOU GET THREE DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES OF YOUR SUBJECT

THAT, PUT TOGETHER, TELLS A VISUAL STORY.

4. YOU GET A MEANINGFUL CLOSEUP AND CONTEXT PHOTO.

YOUR EVENT SUBJECT CAN BE ANYTHING

AND DOES NOT HAVE TO BE A MAJOR EVENT.

5. YOUR PHOTOS ARE CANDID, NOT POSED. IT IS CANDID STORY-TELLING.

YOU CAN MAKE GREAT PHOTOS FROM A BORING EVENT!!!!

LOOK FOR GREAT MOMENTS AND KEEP EACH PHOTO CLEAN WITH

CLEAN BACKGREOUNS!
