I When I have time, I like to cruise around through photo sharing sites like 500px, Tumblr, Google+ and Flickr for inspiration, and also out of courtesy to check out work that other people have made the effort to create and present. Here are three shots I’ve seen recently that I love. Maybe they’ll inspire you as well.
The Last Ones by Lars van de Goor
I ran across the work os Lars van de Goor on 500px and am blown away by some of his imagery. Granted a few of his shots are Photoshopped quite a bit, but I don’t think that this one is, aside from basic exposure and contrast adjustments. The Last Ones is an absolutely gorgeous image that has exceptional detail and clarity, and not just because it was shot with a Nikon D800. Lars definitely has they eye. See for yourself. There are so many awesome shots on 500px, I could spend all day there.
Serenity, by Tor Ivan Boine
I follow Tor on Twitter and Flickr, although I can only read a small percentage of his tweets, since he’s Norweigan. He does a variety of outdoor photography. This beautiful photo was shot with one of the old fashioned cameras, a Nikon D90.
Living on the Edge ~ Namibia, by Martin Sojka
Martin Sojka from Slovakia shot this image. Pretty much illustrates the whole “photography is all about the light argument.” Imagine this landscape shot at midday.
