The next thing I do is research. I usually go to Shutterstock and IstockPhoto (because of exclusive content) and type in keywords related to my theme. I already have a folder on my desktop called Stock Ideas and in the folder I have many theme-related sub folders. I go through the agencies images and download comps of concepts and ideas that I like. Depending on the theme, it could be from 20 to 100ish images.

Hmmmmmm.....

Great summary of getting organized and shooting.

I am sure you didn't mean this to read as if you make the shot list by copying the photos whose comps you downloaded, but that's how the order of your list makes it seem - download comps of images I like and make a shot list for my shoot.

Clearly there are people who just copy what sells but it would be a shame to promote that as a way to work when I don't think that's what you had in mind.
