    I'm hoping to choose songs and express the emotion or psychology of the songs in a photograph. Im struggling with how to express different genres or types of music I listen to into photographs. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks...

    I actually have to take the pictures though- I will have access to Chicago tomorrow. I can't take a picture of BIg Ben or something like that. Its also not supossed to convey the song through the lyrics or literally. More of the psychology of it. Thanks for the advice.

    Non-literal is easy. take a pic of anything and call it Imagine.
     
  7. I can't find a download of that song anywhere... iTunes, Amazon, etc... what is it called? On what album is it? It doesn't seem to be on Overcast.

    Although a lot of photographers have done this type of thing, you should be aware that it violates the copyright of the song in several ways Principal among these are: public performance without the permission of the music creator and illegally modifying the "context" of the song by linking it to a particular series of photographs.

    If you had the "misfortune" of having someone in the music business see your photo/music presentation, for example, you could be in financial hot water to say the least.

    Hmm one way round that is to use royalty free music - that would certainly be the safer route to take
