    I am doing a project for my highschool photo class using my canon xti camera. the project is that i have to make other people guess the word that i have chose out of a hat through my photography. the word i picked was DANGEROUS. My photos have to express this word: it can either be a series or individual pictures. also i wanted some of the pictures to have humor in them. ANY THOUGHTS?

    So you want someone else to do your homework for you so you sign up to a photography forum and make two identical posts asking for ideas?

    This is one part of photography that you can't just go and ask people for help with, and you either have it or you don't.

    Creativity.

    Creativity is the only thing that keeps your pictures from being just like any other photographer's. I'm sure there are plenty of ways to express danger, just look around. It doesn't have to be complex. It could be an everyday object (a roadsign came to my mind). Just look around, it'll surprise you where you'll find inspiration.

    One of my photography instructors in college years ago gave an assignment that might fit the bill. It wasn't a word, but an object. He passed out a different object to each person and we had to do a 15 to 20 shot portfolio with that object as the main focus. He handed me a single chicken egg. It was a real challange and turned out to be a lot of fun. How many dangers could something like an egg be put in?

    I just merged the two threads, there need not be two identical questions spread across the forum.
    Welcome, sbonnot.
    I hope you will share your "dangenous" photos with us once you have taken them!
     
  9. Where do you live? The city, the country, in a suburban environment? There's different things I might be able to suggest in each environment.

    Btw, I disagree with some of the others. Just because someone says "Cliff" to you doesn't mean it is the end of your creativity. There's a million ways to shoot something.

    A sharp knife was first in my mind.
    Electricity is a good one.
    I was thinking about shooting eggs yesterday. It'd be dangerous for an egg to be under a car tire.

    I would balance a large butchers knife on the nose(of cource it would be done through photoshop as photographers value their eyes.)

    Red and black or yellow and black will make more or less everything look dangerous :).
