Carry out this format and plan each picture you have
visualized in your mind while conducting the research.
Keep in mind that
you can change this as the situation warrants. You can even add new picture
ideas or delete some. The script is only a guide. Figure 1-7 illustrates a
simple picture story sketch from an assignment to photograph a newly-opened
d. Evaluation of Shooting Script.
You can evaluate your objective
statement and shooting script using the following criteria:
The leaders must gain something from the story or they
will not read it.
(2) Impact. Your pictures must have impact.
That "something" which
appeals to the eye, catches attention and holds it.
(3) Focus/scope. Narrow the scope of your subject. A picture story
about your whole post may be interesting but would be cumbersome and time
consuming to read.
Focus on a smaller part.
Maybe a department, or
division, or an individual.
(4) People. Focus on people. Whatever your story, the chances are
that it can be made better and more interesting if it is told in terms of
people doing things. Readership tests have shown that people are interested
(5) Universal appeal.
Finally, evaluate your story for universal
appeal. It is not enough that the story subject appeals to you. It must
also appeal to a large number of the people who read the publication in
which it will appear.
