man running up stairs



Sometimes a photo can be very simple.  Rohn Engh of photosource international teaches about what makes a good stock photograph.  I am not saying that this is a good stock photo but it does follow his instructions.  First the background.  Keep it simple.  Have a person in the shot and have a symbol (in this case the headset ) and have the person involved with the symbol.  This type of stock is used for photo illustration, not advertising.  I once had a shot of Boots Randolph shot during a festival in Charlotte that was used by The Christian Science Monitor to illustrate something about a New Orleans festival.  Boots was small in the shot, and what they wanted was a jazz group on a stage, and that shot fit their need.
