It’s true that there is no automatic setting for storytelling, though the fact remains that a story is one of the most important elements of a great photo.

5 Ways to Improve Your Creativity in Street Photography

5 Ways to Improve Your Creativity in Street Photography When I started photography nine years ago, I didn’t have a problem going out and finding inspiration.
