Funny Photo of An Elephant Being Pushed Out Of The Room.

There is an elephant in the room, but he is being pushed out, or at least a businessman is trying to push him out. It is not an easy task as evidence by the strain on the man's face. This stock photo takes that old adage about an elephant in the room a step further. This elephant isn't just being ignored! The message for this picture can vary depending on the headline and copy. Pushing the pachyderm out of the room could indicate a willingness to hear or solve a problem, or on the other hand, it could indicate a stubborn determination not to pay attention to a rather large problem. One trait of a successful stock image is the ability to use it to communicate, with impact, various and often conflicting ideas.


Funny Animal Pictures As Effective Stock Photos

Funny animal pictures can be effective stock photos. People are naturally drawn to animals, and always enjoy humor. Combine humor, animals, and a message, and you have the potential for an effective, and in many cases, even viral, advertising tool. With this picture of a businessman pushing an elephant through an office, there is the element of shared humor. All of us can identify with this hypothetical situation. The image has instant appeal through humor, can be applied to a wide variety of messages including, "the elephant in the room", the "immovable object" and the bizarre or unlikely. Other symbolic meanings portrayed by this photo can be challenge, adversity, difficulty and futility.


Photographing Elephants For Stock Photography

I arranged to photograph an elephant in Thailand. Here in the United States it would cost me around $5,000.00 to secure an elephant to photograph. In Thailand I only had to pay $450.00...and that was without negotiating. Also, I knew that the money would directly benefit the elephant...something that probably wouldn't be true of an Elephant photographed here in the United States. The office was a vacant one that I arranged to shoot through the services of a commercial real estate agent. The businessman was a model that I photographed in my studio. I used Photoshop to composite the three images together. To make sure that I would be able to utilize the elephant in as many composites as possible I erected a large white silk between the elephant and the sun. That had the effect of providing a very soft and non directional light, an important quality to have when trying to match parts from images photographed without a specific project in mind.
