5 Months on Dreamstime: What inspires you?

posted on 20th of august, 2008

What inspires you in your photography? With summer finally coming to an end, I am greatly relieved due to the fact that I have taken pictures of everything around me and in my city and am looking forward to cooler temperatures and fall colors. I was going to write about my new findings in HDR photography but Espion had recently posted a blog detailing it and I figured we didn't need two of them.

So instead of writing on techniques, I would like to pose a question:What inspires you the most in your photography, and where do you go for new ideas?

I feel that I will find a vast dispersant of answers resulting from these questions, but I hope that they can each assist not only me, but the entire community as well. Seeing as that I haven't had a picture accepted on Dreamstime in almost a month, and with the lack of will power to go out and seemingly waste my time again, any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Matt -- Money inspires me as well, money gives you choices. In addition I find it motivating viewing top selling images of subjects that I enjoy shooting. It encourages me to try harder for better images and be more selective in choosing images to upload. Cheers

Money inspires me. And seeing what is selling. I like to look at things and think about how I might make that image better. What is it I like about the image, and what is it I do not like.
