“Are we using 1,000 words where a picture should be” I feel like this was a great way to start off the reading. I instantly started thinking about all the powerful pictures I’ve seen and how I would describe what was going on to match the powerful message of the picture. True is, Briggs is right. It would take 1,000 words. Its all about getting lucky and being in the right spot at the same time. Photos capture the raw emotions, expressions, reactions, that we just simply can’t get across in words. This world is surrounded with tools and items to create a perfect photo, we just have to know how to use them the right way.
