A Picture is Worth A Thousand Words – by Kas Stone
We all know the expression “a picture is worth a thousand words.” Words and images are two different ways of telling stories and expressing our feelings about a subject. One appeals visually, the other linguistically, to different areas of our brains to get their message across. However when words and images are used effectively together – pairing a compelling photograph with a clever title or interesting backstory – their impact can be truly inspiring.
In this thought-provoking presentation, photographer and author Kas Stone explores the controversial connection between words and images. She will also offer some tips and exercises to help you create effective titles for your images.
