Concepts in current news

Publishers of news worthy items are always on the lookout for photography to support their current stories, so it's always a good idea to stay in tune with current events as these news stories can sometimes spark off an idea for photographers!

As an example, recently in the UK there was a huge story in the news about drones being flown close to airports, and subsequently one major airport had to be closed down resulting in flights suspended for several days causing misery for many passengers!

This news story sparked an idea for me....I knew I had already got photos of drones and aeroplanes in my portfolio, and hearing this news story gave me an idea for a concept off to work I went!

Using Photoshop of course, I selected a couple of my best aeroplane shots and one particular shot of a drone I took a photo of at a wedding some years ago, and superimposed them all together using also various selection tools.

Within days of my photo being accepted on Dreamstime, the photo had sold to a big newspaper online and made front page headlines (please see actual photo below).

So although it can be very busy going on photo shoots and post-processing on the computer...I always like to keep one ear open on the current news can lead to more photo ideas and hopefully result in keep in tune to current can pay off in the end!

Very creative idea. Drones are an issue that come up quite a bit in our current age. No doubt your photo will sell well! William
