    Default Okay, I need some ideas folks.. I'm stumped!

    Alrighty folks, here's the problem....

    I have no freaking clue what to do for my senior photos! I wanted something creative, and I've got a few ideas relating to who I am, but I'm looking for some more input.

    Idea #1: Do your standard "You go pose over there while I take pictures" type of photo.

    Idea #2: An idea one of my friends had, since I'm in the fire service, to get into my duty uniform after I wax / wash one of the frontline trucks, and do a few pictures around that. Possibly do a picture of my EMS bag and helmet on the hood of our rescue, with me standing beside it.

    Idea #3: Wear a nice pair of jeans, and a collared denim shirt and go up to the local granite quarry and try to get a few photos with the quarry walls as a backdrop. Looks just like a mountain side.

    Not too many ideas. I want something unique, any input?

    I'd vote for # 3. Senior photos are to show how you look, not what you do. I'd almost say to go to the granite quarry in a suit, just for the contrast. Those granite quarries are georgeous. Wear something dark.

    WOW!

    I say do what the kid in Nashua, NH did. He wanted a picture of himself holding a shotgun broken over his shoulder. Lots of flaming liberal PC freaks whined about that one.

    Me? Don't go all out. It's just a picture and in 10 or 15 years no one will recognize you anyway. Of course my high and tight is still the same, except it's tinged with gray - 13 years later.

    We always did ours at a studio or in our front or backyards at our house. A few kids did them on the football field or the track. stuff like that. We never did anything like quarries or firehouses. but the quary idea(deffinetly in a suit) sound damn cool!!

    We went into the back stage of the theater at my school and got them with the school hired photographers. They all looked the same, and for the longest time weren't even color! I think the class after me ('04) got color senior pics. I was just glad I'm a guy, the pervert photographer always had to "adjust" the black slip that the girls had to wear.....

    I made the mistake of letting one of my mom's friends "who's a photographer" take my senior pic...Let's just put it this way...The pic could be in the backround at an Italian restaraunt in a Godfather movie....

    I have lost my mind..has anyone seen it? it's not worth much..but it's mine

    Whatever it takes to get the free comb!
    If you have the option, have a photo taken that captures the kind of person that you are.
    For our son, the photographer set up his back drop and props to show his interests at the time. His sports jerseys, footballs, baseball and bats and we even had his Honda Rebel motorcycle in it.
    If a photographer is taking them, they should have some ideas after you tell him your bio.

    No, It was because of YOUR location. You guys were always taking shelter in there from the "Disaster of the day" whatever it might have been.

    If you want to be in a different light than the rest, Then your idea # 2 would do it.
