Want to use your photos in a way that leaves a bigger impact than scattered snapshots? You can make a series of pictures flow into an unforgettable story. Learn how to create a compelling narrative - and how a versatile camera like the Samsung Smart Camera NX1100 can help.
A great collection of photos can preserve and enhance subjects as wide-ranging as the first year of your niece’s life, your trip to the coast, or the sights of autumn in your neighbourhood. Whether you’re preserving the memory of a special day or trying something more artistic, a series of images can form a powerful story. The right tips and equipment can help.
Find a great topic
Take time to choose the topic that will bring your photos together. If the topic doesn’t fire your imagination - or at least kindle your affection for family and friends - your collection is likely to feel ordinary. Keep your options open by choosing a camera versatile enough to capture all kinds of images - indoors and out, up close and far away, impromptu and composed - such as the Smart Camera NX1100.
It’s all in the details
One advantage of photography over video is that it freezes moments for your friends and family - or the whole Internet - to savour. The more your photos reward extended viewing, the more engaged your audience will be. The Smart Camera NX1100’s 20.3M APS-C sensor helps you capture minute details even by moonlight.
Making sure your images are understood in relation to one another is a key challenge. Nothing establishes context better than a well-chosen image. For a series of shots about a single event, for example, you might start with a panorama of the whole setting and then focus on more intimate moments. The Smart Camera NX1100’s allows you to create stunning panoramas with the touch of a button, and even create 3D panoramic images.
Share your work
Your collection won’t amount to much if no one sees it, or if it’s presented in a way that undermines the care you put into creating it. The Smart Camera NX1100 makes transferring and sharing your photos easy with built-in Wi-Fi and Smart Link. And you won’t ever have to worry about losing the perfect shot, thanks to AutoShare, which instantly forwards your shots to your smartphone.
Once you’ve shared your series of photos, ask a friend or two for constructive criticism. Your first attempt might not be a masterpiece, but with the right camera, a thoughtful approach, and some perseverance, you’ll find yourself telling great stories before long.
