    So I attend classes at LSU and have my first photo project. We use film. Anyway our first project is a secret. I have to take pictures of a secret someone else wrote down. My secret is "I'm afraid I won't become somebody."

    My idea is to take a picture of the definition of fear and somebody in the dictionary. I also want to take pictures of dr stuff and art stuff but no person - like old dried up, dusty, etc. We're making 10 prints. Any other ideas?

    Thanks in advance!!

    Photograph a homeless person? A burger flipper? Instead of a picture of the definitions in the dictionary, try to find scenes, places, people that represent lack of progress or success.

    say a "hand" with pen writing a poem and at the end of the poem it'll be all scratch out? blur the poem, focus on the hand maybe.

    I was going to say a homeless person would be a prime shot. The more of a drunk or druggie they are the better.

    I kinda like the dictionary idea. I would find an old cool looking one though and don't make it too obvious of the definition you are trying to get. Maybe use some depth of field so only the definition you want is in sharp focus? I would just do one word though. Fear or somebody would work, maybe success too? I don't know. Now I've got all these ideas stuck in my head. . .time to pull out the camera!!

    this reminded me of a picture I took of myself a few years ago, before I was serious about photography. I was just messing around, and it's not a technically great shot, but it seems like it could be an appropriate image.

    I had this Soviet original poster of Karl Marx a friend had given me, and I photographed myself in silhouette with the poster lit in the background. Maybe a similar idea - a person in the shadows of someone great, or a group of great people - a statue, a poster, etc.

    Just a thought.

    I got a great idea, but I'm not going to do your homework for you.
