    I have to give an informative speech this comming tuesday so i decided to go with photography, but I'm having some trouble getting started and deciding what to talk about. It has to be around 7min, so it can't be too complex, but I'm just wondering about what i could talk about that would keep a classroom full of 19yr olds entertained. Any thoughts or comments at all, please feel free to share, thanks!

    19-year-olds... hmmm....

    Tell 'em about the all the glamore, wealth and power that photographers enjoy.

    OR

    Talk about one simple aspect. IE: How a SLR works, or how a digital camera captures an image, or how making photos is similar/dissimalar to another medium.

    Good luck!

    I recently gave a speech on portrait photography for a college class. I broke it out into several sections, composition (rule of thirds, etc), lighting (natural, flash), candid/photojournalistic approach, and a brief talk about digital vs film and suggested items to get started. If you can use visual aids do so. I've used powerpoint to show photos that illustrate my points (i.e. photo with direct flash vs bounced). Good luck!

    how about the intrusion of the photgraphic media into famous peoples lives. and the boundaries that are crossed to get the best shot? or how about the rules and ethics of papparazi?

    How about something that is discussed here all the time. Is digital photography art? Is photography art?
