Find someone who inspires you

After watching a video about Hiroshi Sugimoto I decided to go out and try to capture some seascapes in the same way that he did, after all sea and seascapes are quite abundant when you live on an island…

I picked up my camera and my 35mm lens and went for a walk. Needless to say that I lack Sugimoto’s talent but going out and trying a different approach was very motivational. This got me thinking that we don’t need new gear to become inspired to go out and shoot, all we need is to find someone who inspires us, some whose work we can “copy” in our own interpretation. This allows us to try different things and, consequently, grow and develop our own photographic style.
