Creating stories is what many photographers are striving to do, whether in video or stills. Pulling on emotional ties with your viewer with something they can relate with gives the storyline a bigger impact. One photographer created a dramatic series on something most of us have been through at some point in our lives: insomnia.
After seeing a few images on the Do More Photographers Forum, I decided to contact the photographer to learn a little more about the storyline. Stacey Krolow created a fictional character and story based on an aspect of what model Julien was going through at the time. The team treated it as an intimate short film captured in stills. For two weeks prior, the pair designed storyboards and prepared to photograph the whole series in a 24-hour period.
