Hello all, My daughter has a photography exam paper for her A level photography entitled "Covert and Obscured".
We have been brainstorming themes, and given the title, I thought I would ask for ideas from the experts!

With all the hoopla over Illuminati supposedly depicted in the visual aspects of the music, and movie industries...maybe a compilation of that symbolism.... It's even making it's way into mainstream fashion industry....

Tell your Daughter, Good Luck with her project....

Forced perspectives are really cool.

Or you could theme it for space. The Mars rover has taken some crazy photographs as of late.

Any of the symbology from the Dan Brown books would work....

Someone in a winter coat walking through airport security, then, do a double exposure to make it look like something weird under the coat, as if they are getting away with something (nude under the coat, weapons, smuggling lots of cats, something)....kind of like you, the viewer have x-ray vision...

Seems like this is a popular theme for photography exams so you get a ton of hits off of google from it where you could fish for inspiration

A couple of ideas come to my mind.
Camouflaged animals.
Portraits of people in the anonymous masks maybe holding a written message,
If you're in England then chavs with their hoods up

Used to have a big radar, and was a "surveilance and control and reporting center"

Perhaps we can pose as prospective buyers! Up for a snip at 2.5 million .

Can you give us a little more info about the assignment? Covert and obscured seems vague. I get why people are saying Illuminati etc, but I like Spanners idea of doing something in nature that's camouflaged.

How is she liking the class? I've always wanted to take a photography class.

I'm confused as to what a photography exam paper is. Is it a written test on photography, or does your daughter have to take a picture of something?

If she has to take a picture I'm assuming it can't be too complicated, else you'd have to fly around the world to get that picture.

So, I'm thinking of having someone walking a dog on a leash, only the dog has the chain in his mouth. Maybe with some program you can make the dog smile a little bit, with a wink of the eye. The caption would read: Who's the master and who's the pet? It's all I have at the moment. Good luck!
