Anatomy Of The Details Story

If you’re familiar with our S3: Shooting Stories That Sell workshop, you’ll recognize the storytelling approach to capturing details. To capture a more complete story, do the following:

  1. Set the scene (wide)
  2. Present the story (medium)
  3. Show the details (tight)

This is the same approach taken in your favorite movies and television shows because it works. If you’re shooting details for the ceremony site, you’ll need to capture a wide shot of the entire site, a medium shot to showcase the altar, flowers, etc, and then tight shots to show more details in each of the objects in the scene.

These shots are great for sharing with venues, vendors, and coordinators.
