Does every photo need a narrative or story?
No... but Yes! Let me explain...
When you reach for your camera or mobile device, pause to consider the stimulus and reason for taking the photo. This informs some choices - what perspective and angle, how close, what should I include and exclude in the frame. Then the subtleties and the real fun begins. What is the point of fixation, what else do you want the viewer to notice, when 'reading' different parts of the photo in a particular sequence.
