A Picture Speaks a Thousand Words
A Canon Miraisha Storytelling Workshop, in collaboration with Uganda Press Photo Awards (UPPA), recently concluded seeing 11 aspiring young photographers pass through the workshop. Kenyan based Canon Certified Trainer, Georgina Goodwin, hosted this workshop virtually for one week, in order to bring light to the importance of storytelling and how to craft well composed stories to convey a message or a situation.
As an example, one of the projects by Ayenga Andrew Maxwell depicted the story of two brothers who were pressured to grow up early, due to the COVID 19 pandemic. The story unfolds to show their hardships and unspoken family bonds in such tidal times. Through the power of photography and storytelling in imagery, Maxwell used emotional appeal to send his messages across. This workshop challenged the students and taught them new skills they need to successfully master the art of storytelling in their beautiful photographs.
