When you are faced with illustrating a story with your photograph, you have to consider creating an image that tells the story within the information contained in the image. It must be simple but compelling. The more simple your image the more compelling it is. Choose a frame from the scene on location and work with placing it over the image or shoot through the frame to create depth. I have chosen the image of the felled pine tree on a hill overlooking the College Drive construction project. Watch for background elements that standout to complete the composition such as the school bus.
