Websites, publications, indeed any content created for any business or endeavour has added impact if you combine your message with graphic images. Suitable stock imagery plays a part in getting your message across.
The graphics you use, the stock images or photos you use all carry much more than just the image itself or themselves. They carry semantic content – indicating meaning even if just partial. They carry an emotive content as well – they indicate particular forms of mood and feeling. Each of us associates particular feelings, memories and more with distinct forms of images. Sunrise, sunset, damp days of spring or autumn, city traffic, a beach and shoreline – I am sure that each such brings certain feelings, memories to mind.
I am not the greatest of photographers but here are some images which may be of some use – download away folks – credit to f4mmedia where you can.
Sometimes there is a use to be made of images that have a slightly different sensibility, stand a little away from the norms of stock photography.
