Brainstorm & Choose Your Topic

Before you begin your photo essay, you will want to carefully consider what topic you'll choose.  To help you develop some ideas for the essay, brainstorm a list of topics you are interested in learning more about.  These can be personal topics or topics geared toward a specific subject, like Science or Social Studies.  The key is to choose a topic that is of interest to you, for you will be spending quite a bit of time working with it, and you don't want to get bored in the process.
