Inspiration is where your image starts, and inspiration can spark at any time. Where does it come from, well that depends on you. Don't depend on just your vision if you do you will miss out. Inspiration comes from all of your senses and it will also be effected by your emotions. When you factor all of these variables in you will create a unique image no matter how many people before you shot that same subject. Your image is yours and yours alone. I find myself looking at images that I have created in the past and I am transported back in time, I remember how I felt that day, the smell in the air the sounds of my surroundings. An image that you create can do the same for those that view it as well, but there place, emotion, and feelings will be theirs. To me this makes you a photographer, this is why the still image still holds strong. The still image allows the viewer to create a story of their own. Go out. Be inspired. Create. Above all Shoot What You Love, Love What You Shoot.
Inspiration for your photographs will not just come from visual stimulation, feel your photographs.
