Keep it real

When surveying content, people often look first to imagery, then copy. The best photography informs or elicits an emotional response quickly, and conveys a sense of place and connection with the viewer — all while supporting the content. We want to connect with real people in a real way. Be wary of using imagery that feels contrived or cold, as stock imagery often can. Students spend time together in a lounge at Shocker Hall
