Some good tips here from Carmen Pietraru, a photo content specialist. With a bit of thought and planning, even a photograph of a meeting can become interesting and engaging.
You're tasked with creating a Web page that shows people working collaboratively in an office setting. You dive into stock photos and find a familiar scene: a group of workers dressed in blue, gray, or black who are all smiling from ear to ear for no apparent reason. Or you find an image of two people of different ethnicities shaking hands in an obvious display of "diversity." What both of these types of imagery have in common is that they are forced—not authentic.
