Photography...

so i want to do a set of photography based around love, however i want to portray love in a different way, avoiding the normal wedding/kissing style images.

Any ideas?

cool idea - punk influence

why don't you google - images - love?

Find random items that aren't particularly heart shaped, but can appear to make the shape if you get my drift...

porn?

why dont you think about how others perceive "love"

how some people view infatuation as love

addiction as love

passion as love

friendship as love..

explore how love is misconstrued... art is about making people think "outside the box"

pmsl !!!!!!!!!

if you have children, why dont you ask them what they think love is, and do something along those lines take the "cutesey " approach

How about the darker/sadder side of love.. loss or heartbreak?

If you can Photo someone in real emotional angst you will be amazed at some of the results you will get and the reaction of the people viewing your work.

It is difficult to capture but worth it

How about photographing objects that are shaped like any of the letters in the word "love"?

I'm impressed by this thread, and loving how some people really have thought outside of the box, wicked idea CTUK.

Don't do what I did and get two naked eight-year-olds and get them to re-enact the entire run of Love Is... strips.

LooL its a good job you posted the link to explain what the "Love is.." thing was/is some may not remember or even know, must admit took me a second to think about it... you had me worried :-D

I would take pictures of things like a stolen glance, like walking down the street with one person holding their hands, but they look at the real object of their desire.... be that a pair of shoes or another person. Maybe like the forbidden love kind of thing

This photo makes me grin, because on closer inspection, you can see that both birds are actually the same gender. Gaylove FTW!

I had a pop up book that taught me about the birds and the bees but I dont think this applies here, how can you tell? I hope your not confusing flamingo foot with flamingo plonker.

I've looked at the photo closer and I can't tell gender of either of those, but hey I don't know anything about brids :-D

Could be something to do with the colour of their beaks

When the time comes to document what we did here
The transcription won't really be that hard
'cause I'm a woman-eating monster, with a suitcase full of fire
And pink flamingoes decorate my yard
Yeah pink flamingoes decorate my yard

Do you remember that young girl who did all those things with her body
Yeah I guess you could say it was me who gave her the thought
I hear she's working for President Clinton
The way she used to work for me
But my pink flamingoes keep pecking at her heart
Yeah my pink flamingoes keep pecking at her heart

And they never fly away
Here in my front yard they stay
Baby, I sometimes find it odd
You've got to climb the statue of the Demon
To get closer to God

Now there's a crowd outside demanding my resignation
And a policeman about to draw his gun
Seems I've lost the battle, but the war has just begun
My pink flamingoes will outlive everyone
Yeah my pink flamingoes will outlive everyone

And they never fly away
Here in my front yard they stay
And do you know, baby, I sometimes find it odd
You've got to climb the statue of the Demon
To get closer to God

How about using an non traditional backdrop, say an industrial area, or even better a run down warehouse.
My mate had her wedding photos done in a similar location and high fashion type poses and the results were amazing, very different.
