A Photo Essay of 3 Images

A photo essay is a form of visual storytelling, a way to present a narrative through a series of images that can evoke emotion and understanding without using words.

Here we are looking for 3 images that work together as a group and explore a theme, a place, an emotional mood, or a vision. There is no restriction on subject matter. The three images should be either all in colour or in b/w. Should you wish, you may add a short descriptive title to the set of images.

He will describe his aesthetic choices, the equipment he used, his shooting technique, and his post-processing method. He will complete his talk by commenting several of the panoramas he created as part of this project.
