It’s early morning in Ubud, Bali, and the sky is slowly turning light. Frogs, insects, birds, and a far-off rooster all play in the morning orchestra outside.We’re half-way through our photo expedition here, and my next goal is to take a stock photo that says “Bali” in a simple, iconic way.I love this photo. I found it on iStock while searching for stock photos from Bali. This one has sold over 100 times.The way the light is coming in from behind, the different shades of green, the one worker in his iconic hat, holding a tool in mid-swing… this photo is so simple, and yet so striking.Stock-wise, it’s also great because there’s nothing distracting poking into the photo, there’s plenty of room for copy, and it can be used to represent a myriad of different things, from travel to the environment to the economy to rice farming to SE Asia in a more general sense.As soon as we head out to the rice fields, I’m going to look for a photo that’s simple and iconic. Mind you, I don’t want to copy this photo. But I do want to include the good elements of it into my own:Strong composition, clear subject, copy space, simplicity.And if I can succeed in using the lines of the rice fields in a creative way, as this photographer did, then I’ll be really happy.Your Weekly Breakfast Dish
