How to show emotion without photographing a face

Twyla Jones Photography This year in my Facebook group Emotional Storytelling we have been working to inspire and create new images based on weekly themes. Our most recent theme was #faceless. This is one of my favorite types of images and I always feel this pictures tell so much more of a story by showing less. I was so overwhelmed by the all of the incredible ways these talented artists were able to photograph their subjects and take my breath away over and over again. We had so many submissions for this theme and I had a really hard time [...]

Digital Packages vs Products

Your story is probably similar to mine. A hobby of photography turned career while I figured things out as I went from editing flows to learning what to charge. It was a trial and error process that has led me to where I am now. Like most, I started photographing clients and handing over galleries so they could pick their favorite images and get them printed at their local print shop or big box printer. The idea of offering limited galleries and prints was foreign to me and it was only as I kept growing my knowledge in this industry [...]

In Home Features | Emotional Storytelling by Twyla Jones

This year in my Facebook group Emotional Storytelling we have been working to inspire and create new images based on weekly themes.  I realized I have become so comfortable in the style I have found for myself that I haven't been taking as many risks or exploring as much as I used to in the beginning of my photography journey. It's easy to do what comes naturally, so I created a challenge for us to work a little harder and make something a little different. For one week I challenged participants to send the most creative and emotional photos they've shot [...]

It is my hope that this collection of incredible images inspires you to pick up the camera and document this incredible time for yourself or someone you know. Join us for the next round of features at Emotional [...]
