As much as the title may suggest I'm dissing photography, I swear that I'm digging it! :wink:

What idea's would you budding photographers use if you were trying to tell a story? Or perhaps capture a moment? Has anyone got any examples of their work?

I had a couple of idea's running through my head, i.e....

FUNERAL

4/5 lads gathered in scruffy black suits, white shirts, black ties, gathered in semi-circle round road-kill, gazing either downwards at the unfortunate victim or upwards to the sky.

HEART EXHIBITION

A girl stands with her back to the camera looking out a window wearing a long shirt/nightgown holding it open exposing herself to any lookers who may be peering up at her window - putting her heart out for show.

EXIT

A friend is hunched over the toilet being sick.....window open....friend exhales a cigarette keeping watch at the door, etc....<further examples of exit to appear in pic such as water being run in the bathtub, etc>


Honestly I don't have a clue about photography, I just always have a camera on me and was interested in hearing other people's ideas?


i like the heart one dude, very cool!!

I think for the one off shot the 'heart' is good, but to give the idea of an idea (sorry) then the last one is great. There are so many ways you could convey the one word. Its at endless as your imagination.

Good stuff Jim. I was listening to that song "Another Chance" by Roger Sanchez last week and got thinking of a man dressed in black (similar to John Lennon in the "Imagine" video) holding an umbrella in the rain with flowers in his other hand gazing up a staircase where half a door is open to try and re-create a photograph using the same title?!

That was a weaker idea but still one to work on.

Don't be silly!! have you read some of my poetry!! weeeeeak!! :D Honestly, they're a good bunch on here Megs and they do sometimes give you a bit of a drive if other persons provide material which they consider good quality, etc.

Not bad, but it could look a bit 'adverty' IYKWIM. Its an idea to work with though.

Hmmm....yeah, it could do (a little too Milk Tray Man perhaps? ha ha). Anyways, if people have ideas for stories behind photographs, or are able to show some of their work on here, that'd just be completely fantastic because clearly i'm looking for inspiration here!

Cheers guys!

Yeh, go for it Meg. like stephen says, you have read his poems, and seen my photos as well. I dont think anyone on here would be nasty about anyone else.

*group hugs everyone*
