Roy / Tidaholm, Sweden
Went to a storytelling workshop with the brilliant Pieter Ten Hoopen at his summer house in Hjo, Sweden, last weekend. Really intensive and very inspiring! South Africa based photographer Per-Anders Pettersson joined us as well as a mentor. The focus of the weekend was to develop our storytelling skills through the tempo and the construction of a reportage. One line that kept being repeated throughout was Kill your darlings, meaning, how the images play together are more important than the strength of a single image in a reportage. If it doesn’t fit in the story, get rid of it.
I think it will take time for everything to sink in properly but I am sure something really interesting will come out of it!
