When shooting images for my stock photo portfolio, I will occasionally venture away from my usual “Bright & Cheery” shots and work to portray some of the less pleasant elements of our world.  Today’s image is an example of this.  One of the concepts I worked to capture during last month’s iStock event in St. George Utah was school violence.  In an effort to be sensitive to potential uses of the image, I purposely kept the model anonymous.  Since this theme has already sold, evidently there is a market for the concept.
