Do you ever go through your old family photos and wonder what was happening in the image? Where did the activity take place? Why was everyone together at this particular time? There’s a cake-was it a birthday, graduation, anniversary? If you’re lucky, your mom or grandma jotted the place, the person’s name, maybe the year. But unfortunately, that is often not the case. Well, there is something you can do with your photos to save your future generations from wondering what you were trying to capture in your photographs. You can put together a photo essay. A photo essay is a specific group of shots that tell a story. Each shot is captioned, and, if you’re feeling up to it, you can write an accompanying story or description of what happened at the event. Here are some example shots you can take to complete your photo essay.
