For years photographs have been used to tell stories. Especially in classrooms, a series of photographs can be used to tell a
story. One good picture can take the place of many words. Taking great photos isn’t just about having a nice camera. Good
photographs come from thinking creatively and thinking ahead with some planning and practice. Whether we’re working
with a fancy DSLR or a phone camera, we can learn to take great photos to tell a story.
• Learn how to create an effective story with photographs.
• Explore storyboarding basics for storytelling.
• Define the applications of visual storytelling in a child care program.
