How to Make a Photo Series

How do you make a photo series

When making a photo series, the overall effect should be stronger than any individual image. That’s why it’s important to take some time to first sort and select your photos to see which ones work best together. During this process, it’s likely that you will keep some images that you initially thought were not strong enough, but which, when placed alongside each other, become really striking and a great fit for your photo series.

Once you have sorted your photos, it’s also crucial to ensure that they all look as consistent and similar as possible during the editing process. This is particularly important when working with subject or scene based themes, where the overt connection between the images will help the viewer to identify and understand each one as part of the whole. This is achieved by ensuring that all the images share the same visual elements: a detail that echoes another, colors, texture, framing, a wide shot then a tight one, a specific kind of light etc.

The easiest way to create a photo series is by choosing a subject that you can revisit on a daily basis and photograph in various ways. This might be a particular location that you visit on a regular basis, such as a park or public space. Alternatively, you could focus on a specific item or object that you carry with you in your everyday life. For example, US photographer Thom Gregory has a series of intriguing portraits that show females with their faces obscured or covered in different items.
