Paragraph 1
PARAGRAPH #1

Using third person omniscient point-of-view, describe the setting and what’s happening. Use details from the photograph, but don’t rely on the caption to give you the story. Imagine where this is and what’s taking place and why.


Paragraph 2
PARAGRAPH #2

Stay in third-person p-o-v, but enter the perspective of one of the people in the photo.

Continue to describe what’s happening, including any dialogue, but focus on this character’s perceptions and feelings—how does s/he see the place, the occasion, the other people, the weather/time of day/season? What else in his/her life is intruding on his/her thoughts and moods?


Paragraph 3
PARAGRAPH #3

Continue to describe what’s happening, including any dialogue, but now shift to the point-of-view of a new person in the photo. How does s/he see the place, the occasion, the other people, the weather/time of day/season? What else in his/her life is intruding on his/her thoughts and moods?


Paragraph 4
PARAGRAPH #4

Now, move to the point-of-view of a character who is not in the photograph (an onlooker, the photographer, someone who’s just leaving the scene or just arriving).
