D-140 Inspiration . . .

Where does your inspiration come from?
I've always been told to study images that you really like. To pay attention to the details. I look at the lighting, the composition, the color. I find what it is that attracts me to the image and I study what "it" is.
However, on Scott Bourne Photofocus Blog there is an article byTamara Lackey, she says "In my experience, though, I actually find that doing the opposite actually helps me to better crystallize what, exactly, I am drawn to, simply by better honing in on what is not of interest to me."

Interesting concept, I'll have to try and study the images I don't like. How about you where does your inspiration come from?

My image today is in response to The Daily shoot "#ds191 Focus the viewer's attention. Make a photo of a single subject with as plain a background as you can."

Cool... Simple, yet symbolistic.

I like the lighting on this. Almost mysterious.

Nice lighting on this. Make it feel like the soldier is emerging from darkness.

I have no idea how you do this black background stuff, but it looks great, especially here with the ominous subject

Great point about studying what you don't like. One thing I enjoy doing is looking at photos at photovotr.com - you can vote for the one you like best. I enjoy this because I look at the two options presented, and analyze why I like one better than the other. It helps me understand what I think makes a good photo.

Great image! Very intriguing lighting!

Lighting is spot on! I like how dramatic this is.
