    Welcome to TPF!

    We will only help you with your homework if you have a try at it yourself first. What kind of ideas or direction have you thought about?

    The first question is: what is the context of the assignment?
    Is it for church, a photography class? What?

    If for church, then the connotation of the pictures sounds great. But if in a secular classroom, the connotation can mean almost anything. So be careful.

    Personally, I think that a more positive image may be in order, but it really is up to you. One idea is religious symbolic. If done correctly, images of the cross, star of David, a crescent, or any other religious symbol may work well. Old missions, or even modern versions of religious books may work as well. Lighting behind the images can be powerful, particurally if through a cloud burst. It really is up to you in the end.

    Sounds like a very promising idea. As has been mentioned, if you give a bit more context to what you are supposed to do, then maybe we can help further.

    You need to decide what exactly you want to say with your photographs.

    Then you need to think of how you can possibly express it visually. It helps if you pre-draw the photographs, so that you know what to look for if you're shooting.

    Then you can shoot. You can pose people... or if you think you can pull it off, you can do street candids.

    As you understand... it's your baby, you visualize it - you create it.

    If we do the homework for you... we might as well shoot it ourselves.

    Makes sense?
