The Image Story


Have you ever seen a photograph and wondered how it was taken? I’m not talking about the dry technical details here but the real story behind the image. How it came to be. Well a new site just launched aims to help you find out more.

The Image Story is all about sharing the craft and inspiration that go into making photography by those who are passionate about it. It helps explain how the image came to be. What inspired the image? What preparation was needed to make the shot? What decisions were made about composition, timing, and the overall execution of the image? All this in the photographer’s own words.

Regardless of what you like to shoot there’s something for everyone with categories covering:

  • Photojournalism
  • Travel
  • Portrait
  • Landscape
  • Editorial

Because they’ve just launched there’s not a huge number of images there yet and the submissions are mainly from the creators friends and contacts but this will only get better over time. In fact if you think you’ve got a great image and want to tell the story of how it came to be you can even create a submission for consideration. Definitely a site to bookmark and check out on a regular basis as it grows and expands.
