    • Picture description
    • Structure and content
      It's not easy to follow a picture description if the writers jumps randomly from one point to another. Therefore make sure that your picture description is logically structured:
       
      -From left to right
      -From the background to the foreground
      -From the middle to the sides
      -From details to general impressions
       
      Which structure you finally choose will depend on your taste and the picture you want to describe.
    • TIPS
      1.Start by describing the basic elements, even if they  seem obvious. Include your first impressions of the photo
       
      2.Next describe the details
       
      3.You can always explain who , where , what, how and why
       
      4.Use modal verbs to express possibility
