how to search for dramatic photos

I’m designing a brochure for KRT Campus, and I was looking for some dramatic images. Normally, you’d do a search for: drama, dramatic, powerful, happy, sad, joyful, and all those other words in the thesaurus. But here’s a trick… look for the verbs that play out those adjectives. The two best ones were: cry and jump. Crying images are ALWAYS dramatic. And people jumping. Well, people jumping are gonna be great happy photos or sports players in their most dramatic moments of action.

did you use any images of people crying in your brochure? probably that wouldn’t be the best attitude to illustrate about college. 😉
