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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
