In your own photo essay, create a narrative. Or think bigger: create a world for your readers. This may require taking photos of the same subject from above or underneath, from up close or far away. Shoot a city with different rolls of film, or filters, or cameras. Lie on the ground, or climb a tree, or look out over a rooftop to document a neighborhood. Experiment with angles and points of view to bring a place or thing to life, which will provide the visuals to tell your story.
