Images can send positive and negative messages. A positive message would be of a flower, or a pretty tree, or even a picture of you and your family. A negative message might not be the same, it might be an inappropriate photo, it might also just be a photo of something sad or depressing. An image could have send a positive message by making you feel good, or making you happy, or even making you laugh. A negative message could make you feel depressed, sad, or not feeling good.
For my final photomontage, we were assigned to shot a meaningful subject in your life, it was also meant to be a implicit message. What I decided to do was this beautiful tree I found. The implicit message that I hid in the picture was that the tree represented my family. How my family and I are as strong as a tree. How we have roots that stretch down into the ground. It symbolizes that we are as strong as that tree is, we cannot be cut down.
