Fun With Stock Photos: Lady on a Bed with a Laptop Edition

Posted by Sara Schaefer March 10, 2010 11:45 AM

Fun With Stock Photos is here again! This time, I was inspired by an old post on Urlesque by blogger friend Eliot Glazer, commenting on the purveyance of stock photo images showing women in bed with laptop computers. I decided to test his theory that stock photo galleries are teeming with pictures of ladies lying in bed with their laptops. AND BOY WAS HE RIGHT. I'm talking thousands. So today, I'm going to show you a variety of examples - and give you some pointers on how to create the classic "lady on a bed with a laptop" stock photo.

It was completely pointless to resist doing a Valentine's Day edition of Fun With Stock Photos. When I searched our stock photo library, I noticed a theme: people looking completely confident in their romantic tactics. Like everyone is just SOOOO sure that the box of chocolates they're holding is completely going to get the girl. That's why I'm calling this the "This Is Going To Totally Work" Stock Photo Collection. Enjoy.

Fun With Stock Photos: Breaking Up Edition

Posted by Sara Schaefer January 11, 2010 3:30 PM

Wooo! Today is the first Fun With Stock Photos of the year! Happy new year, stock images. I think stock photos resolved to be more ridiculous than ever this year. This time, I searched for the term "breaking up." The results? Phenomenal. I even found a sub-category of photos I call the "She's Behind Me, Isn't She?" Series. You'll see. FUN!
