7:15--I have waaaaay too much time on my hands but I started noticing all the stock fotography pics I see. There was one a few years ago that had to do with salad that had a lot of women, looking at their salads and laughing. It made me think that there are a ton of cliches with that kind of thing. For instance: Salad IS Hilarious! http://www.nerdnirvana.org/2011/01/25/salad-is-hilarious/

1. Multicultural team of close talkers --in the workplace

2. Headset hottie (attractive woman w/headset meant to make you think of a call center or Julie your time life operater)

3. Techno yogi (woman doing yoga at her laptop)

4. The Hurdler --Can you help people overcome their biggest hurdles or obstacles? Why not show them with this stock photo of a businessman jumping over an actual hurdle?

5. The Frustrated-at-Technology Guy--Do you want to remind your customers about the pitfalls of your competitor's products? Do so with an image of a frustrated man, woman, or child (you can take your pick; you have plenty of options in stock-photo land!).

6. The Eureka Moment Use this photo when you want to convey how truly life-changing your product is.

7. The AARP Couple Is your target audience over 50? Be sure to feature a couple of silver foxes on your site to make Boomers feel at home there!

8. The Whiteboard Thinker--I've never seen someone write on a clear glass whiteboard in real life, but I've seen it hundreds of times on the Internet (including on our own site... no one said we were innocent!). Use this photo whenever you need to showcase strategic thinking!
