Just as creativity differs in photography, so does inspiration to produce remarkable works. People (photographers) often get inspired by different elements around them. Basically, your inspiration is that thing that elevates or stimulates influence upon your intellect, emotion or creativity. However, it is important to note that inspiration varies based on the job you are working on and sometimes can not be derived from a permanent source. Now, to answer the question that have often been asked, “ What are the things that inspires my photography”, as this will be our focus for today.
Regardless of the fact that we are a professional photography company, we have to admit that our biggest inspiration comes from a place of art. Just like art, it comes with the freedom to interpret ones innermost desires through practice, which is taking images. It comes from our ability of being able to express ourselves after we must have understood the nature of a job or what a client wants. As much as we do not like to be restrained while trying to express ourselves, we also do not like to disregard the feelings clients attach to projects. So, we let that be our fuel and help them convey all the emotions attached to their stories by taking images.
Besides the stated point above, we could get inspired by anything around us. It could be a word, colour or situation that we find urselves at a particular time. All these depend on creativity, which is the desire to always produce something different but beautiful. We love dim colours such as gray or black. This we can say is responsible for the cinematic feel achieved in most of our images. Also, from a place of arts, gray is a blend of black and white which suggest that things aren’t totally bad or good but an adequate blend can produce something remarkable. This also mean that things that are considered most deformed can be made beautiful through the use of images.
As a photographer, try as much as you can not to place so much emphasis on taking great images alone-during a shoot, as it can sometimes distort your focus or hinder your creativity. Just be in the moment and try to understand what story your subject is trying to convey or what you want to achieve because as stated earlier, even the images perceived as bad carry the greatest meaning. Do not prevent your clients from expressing themselves as some of their suggestions can later be transformed into outstanding ideas. Also, try not to go with popular trends and if you must, make sure that you are including something significant that has been omitted by other photographers.
