Haha... Good question...
But i think you should figure it out by yourself...
At the end its your project and all the creativity and efforts should be your...
I did my graphic design along with my animation and vfx course...
And moto of this project is not to give best image captured by you... It is that you should try to take as many possible as photographs as you can...
So you can understand how camera works (shutter speed, iso, f-stop, aperture, lenses, lighting, etc.), how lighting works in real world and along with it how to composite image... Use color grading and color correction, black point white point balance, color wheel, image size and quality... Software like photoshop, Adobe illustrator, etc...
So try to take as many photographs as possible... 100,1000,10000, even possible 100000... And then at the end when time comes to submit it... Choose the best photograph among them...

I think you could do a thought series such as a chess game, a scale, an abacus, a math class, a ruler, an architectural design, a map, a cooking manual from the 1800s etc…0
What Girls & Guys Said
Mirrors, shoot into mirrors, you can get a small one for 5 bucks. Put it in different places. Make sure the background is very clean and the mirror is somewhere in the foreground, have some kind of subject in the background and the mirror can be reflecting whatever artistic comment you want about what's going on behind the mirror.
Like say two people kissing in the background and the mirror shows that someone is watching.
Really this idea can work with just about any concept. Mirrors provoke thought and as long as you keep the esthetic minimalistic and you rely on textures and gradients to create visual interest, you can make the subject anything and you'll come out looking like a baller.
Pro tip, do a set of pictures in the same art style. Consistency will help you get work, if you want to work commercially thats what's going to get you paid the most.10
It needs to ideally be emotive, mark the viewer follow the story or theme.
you can do emotions, stages of life, both linked together.
Pregnant woman, baby, first day school, leaving school or school prom, getting old, funeral, then a photo of a pregnant woman in a graveyard.
obviously some would need to be staged unless you know various people, permission as well.
you could do an Eco one,
emotions could be laughter, tears, anger, etc.10
Would you really care if I told you? Lol joking. It’s interesting to me when people take photos of random places. Like if you went sightseeing and you decided to take some pictures. Maybe you can do that0
Maybe about dogs, everyone likes them0
Can you some examples3
Hidden designs and alphabets. Could specify down further, as, only "faces hidden in car designs", etc. .
Old stuff (self-explanatory). Use plenty of side-lighting to bring out texture.
Patterns, deliberate or "found". (although this should have been taught to you in Photo/Graphics 101).
Contrasts (smooth nudes on rough surfaces).
One of my daughters is a third-generation graphic artist and she did her final on "Shoes". Various media- photo, pastels, pencil, watercolor, oil, etc. Got an "A".
