Both as a personal exercise in creativity and as a theme for a competition, putting together a series of photographs that are based on the song titles on a favorite album is a lot of fun. There are a number of ways you can go about it, so let’s look at a few. They all start with choosing or being assigned an album to use as your theme.
- Spend a few hours shooting all images relating to the song titles.
- Go through your archives and find differing images that relate to the titles.
- In a group, divide the album up and shoot 2-3 “songs” each.
- Shoot the album as a project spanning a few weeks.
- Get really ambitious and try to work your way through Rolling Stone’s “Top 500 Albums” list.
For the examples here, I’ve chosen Pink Floyd’s 1973 album “The Dark Side of the Moon”. Images are after the jump.
