List more than one symbol for each of the following and how I might use them in a photograph.
I have added a few examples where I have taken photos whilst studying for this course.
In spring there are many opportunities to photograph buds, leaves and flowers opening. I would need to use a macro lens or long zoom lens and have a shallow depth of field by keeping the lens open as wide as possible. I would try to vary the angle of shooting – shooting up would accentuate growth.
Take a picture of pregnant woman having a scan (or even use the photo of a scan) or simply a photo of pregnant woman. Another idea would be a statue such as “Verity” by Danien Hirst in Ilfracombe.
Take a photo of a slide of a graph showing an upward trend.

Either a distance shot of a building under construction or a close up of a bricklayer adding to a wall.
Photo of pot/saucepan boiling over
Close up on a stove (or for safety reasons on a camping stove outdoors)
Overflowing shopping bag or trolley
Either a still life or people in (or leaving) a shopping mall or supermarket
People carrying heavy loads
Outdoor scene – seaside usually a good opportunity
Overflowing plate of food
Crime scene tape
Distance shot or close up with police officer
Possibly use an old window from scrap yard and create still life
Part of bike chained to railing
Often see parts of bicycles chained to railings or could possible stage such a scene
Either an examination in progress or a photo of silence boards outside (or even a poster of Examination Regulations)
Still life to go with the idiom “as silent as a …”
Person with finger to mouth indicating silence
Beggar in street/Vagrant
Urchin looking unkempt
Some sign of homelessness
Big Issue seller

This would be quite sensitive to take
