Photography needs constant inspiration and ideas to grow and explore new fields. One source of inspiration are great photographers like Peter Beard and Helmut Newton, the one especially for wildlife photography and the other for fashion. Yet both give great ideas for all kinds of photography, showing techniques and compositions.
Movies and entertainment are also a great source of inspiration. How do they do the lighting and what colors are they using? This can reflect in your own photography and give it a complete new turn.
Nature itself is a fabulous source of inspiration and ideas. Only look at birds with their diversity of stunning colors and patterns. And for photographic safari lovers the BBC nature series are amazing with their great shots of fantastic wildlife interaction.
But ideas can come from anywhere, from as divers as children playing, innovative adverts, natures seasons and office buildings. Think out of the box and discover photographic potential in anything.
Happy innovative snapping!
