Illustrate an idea.
1. Begin with an idea. You could use a scripture verse as an idea to illustrate. Or a concept like "strength" or "endurance" or "luxury" or "poverty" or "study" or "school" or "friends."
2. Find out what other photographers have done with this idea.
3. Imagine an image that you could make to illustrate the idea.
4. Make the image and combine with the concept as in the sample to the right.

Photographic illustration is more than capturing an image of an object. It is using that image to communicate an idea or a mood.
Do it again. The best way to challenge our creativity in photography is to go back to the same subjects we've photographed in the past and look for new ways to see those old subjects. Over the weekend look around your home at the things you photographed before. Take twelve new pictures.
Think about new camera angles, composition, using wide angles lens or telephoto, lighting, then use GIMP to create new images or crop and enhance. The idea is to make these the best pictures you can.
Post to Flickr for Tuesday, May 8.
