Who Inspires You?
The hardest thing about keeping going with any project, be it toy photography or landscape photography is the concept of challenging yourself. Instagram is filled with people who take essentially the same photo over and over again.
I know I can be accused of this as much as the next person.
So I want to take a moment to talk about someone who seems to be challenging himself on a daily basis: +east mountain
. Even though he is nearing the end of his 365 daily photo challenge he continues reinventing his photography style. Sure you can attribute some of this to his desire to master the basic concepts of photography since he is relatively new to the hobby, but most people do not take it to this level.
If you look back through his photos
he has played with different lenses, natural elements like fire, water and sand, as well as experimenting with a variety of lighting styles. Just thinking about the amount of effort that goes into these shoots is a bit mind blowing, but at the same time I am inspired to push myself in a similar way.
Ok maybe I’m not going to start melting my mini figures, but I know I am capable of accomplishing more than what I am doing.
It is easy to look to the likes of Avanaut
for inspiration but don’t stop there. There is as much to be learned from the new kids like East-Mountain
, as from the masters.
