The word “optimism” derives from the Latin word “optima,” meaning the best outcome or belief in the greatest good. This is an example of an individual going into the direction of hopefulness and confidence about the future.
To represent the optimistic view of a half full glass, I would like to use a wine glass. A wine glass imitates the look of success, health, and wealth, because of its curves. The background should be light and bright to set the desired tone of the photograph. Props that can be used are fruits. Maybe a slice of lemon, a strawberry or pineapple can be placed on the rim. Fruits can also be placed inside the water. Cherries, raspberries or blueberries can be used. The rim can also be salted.
