Simple Photo Essay Ideas Photographers

Holy Lurker Batman.

I think fast food is boring. You need something with range that will hopefully draw emotion or educate people a little.

As an example, we did a fun photo essay of a temple here in Bangkok. We got shots of people showing respect to Buddha, the statues, and things that convey the 'feel' of the temple. That is what you want to strive for when doing a photo essay. You want a range of images that 'tells a story.'

For the OP, it might help if we knew what setting you lived in. A small country town is going to have a different subject than a big city.

*homelessness
*problems in ur city (idk...maybe theres a local park being torn down or smething like that and you could take a stand on that..... you kno what i mean...)

these are both good suggestions and leave for a lot of range

You could also do something creative like a guy that took pictures of his feet in all different situations. Like riding a dog sled, skiing, walking in rain, etc... the theme was his feet and where they went.

There’s something they say about words and pictures, so we won’t belabor this too much. Below you’ll find some of the most eye-catching photographs we ran on the site in the last year. Set aside some time to scroll through each one: They’re an amazing window onto everything that’s happening in the world–from Detroit’s collapse and the economic rise of China and the Middle East, to environmental disasters at home and abroad.

And then, less seriously, some great photos of those ridiculous fake tree cell phone towers, hilarious examples of what happens when strangers draw your Facebook photos, and a series of the true residents of Portland, who are crazier than anything you’ve seen on Portlandia. You’ll enjoy them all. And if that’s not enough, you can see our favorites from last year here.

1: Beautifully Mashed-Up Photos Show The Glory And Wreckage Of Detroit

The “Detroit Now and Then” project artfully combines vintage photos of the city with images of what’s there now, providing a poignant reminder of what the city was, what it is now and–maybe–what it could be again.

2: “Portraitlandia”: Photos Of Portland’s Most Portland-y Residents

If Portlandia were a photo series, it would probably look something like Kirk Crippens’s “Portraitlandia,” which features iconic Rose City residents in their natural habitats.

3: Look At These Chinese Workers Carrying Mind-Blowing Amounts Of Stuff

11: These Horrifying Photos Show A Destroyed American Landscape That Agriculture Giants Don’t Want You To See

These aerial images of industrial beef farming operations look less like shots of land and more like a post-apocalyptic nightmare.

12: These Photos Of Tiny, Futuristic Japanese Apartments Show How Micro Micro-Apartments Can Be

Micro-apartments are in vogue today. But in Japan, people have been living in the Nakagin Capsule Tower’s 100-square-foot housing for decades.
