So, I have to create an interesting photo with the subject being the use of a laptop. It should be as interesting as possible.

I have thought of a photo with working on laptop while going up on stairs in the metro. Can you suggest some ideas, or maybe some photographers who have a related work.

Hi Ryan. I'm curious — is this a homework assignment, or a business client request? No problem either way; just wondering. – mattdm Aug 18 '11 at 14:23

I think it would be interesting to portray the laptop being used in places where you do not expect to see a laptop: say a kitchen (with food splattered on it), a field (with dirt on it), or even a sporting event, say on a football field.

Good luck!

Underwater, while scuba diving? – che Aug 18 '11 at 20:57

Does the laptop have to be the focus? There was a series done a while ago by Gabriela Herman on bloggers, it's up here on her site

not necesarily, the focus must be a special environment in which you work on your laptop... But thanks:) Maybe you or others could give me some more resources. – Ryan Aug 18 '11 at 13:26
You could focus on the environments you see people working with laptops, coffee shops, trains, buses etc that aren't the traditional office/home office environments. If I was doing it I'd probably do something like get someone to sit in a coffee shop and do a really long exposure to get everyone blurred around them whilst they sit still and are zoned in. – Nicholas Smith Aug 18 '11 at 16:04
