The methodology for conceptual photography is staging to represent an idea. Your 'concept' could be preconceived or spontaneous, and should hopefully be, if successful, understandable. Be persistent in conveying your view, formed in response to current trends in image usage, as determined by researching what the market likes and needs. Ah, and save us from significant image alteration! Be real and authentic, use photography, not image manipulation.
