Right now I am on summer vacation, but being the good student that I am lol, I have decided to start some research for a big project I have to do in school next year. The project requires certain elements, but you get to choose your subject. I have decided to do something photography related. I was originally going to do my project on the history of photography, but I have decided that this is too broad. So now I am trying to narrow this subject down into a smaller more specific subject. The teacher assigning this project said very clearly that the subject shouldn't be too broad (like the history of photography, for example) or too specific (like Ansel Adams). Do you have any ideas for narrowing down the topic of the history of photography? The teacher said the topic should have some sort of relation to the United States (it doesn't have to be explicitly related to the US, but it should have some connection). Don't fret about about the relation to the US part though, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Please reply, as I need to decide my subject within a day or so, so I can check out a library book on it. Thanks in advance P.S. The topic does, however, need to be broad enough that I can find a book about it. I tried looking for a book about SLR photography and all I could come up with was how-to books.
