Reply To: Lesson 2: Photography Inspiration

Hi Maxine,

Thanks for your assignment. It’s interesting that everyone has a moment when they realize there is a way more to this whole photography thing than first ‘meets the eye’ if you will.

Then it’s a slippery slope toward full blow photography addiction! 🙂

Seriously though I think you’ve found the thing that piqued your interest in photography but you may also want to look into learning more about the masters of photographer for inspiration.

There is always something you can learn from them.

The idea of course is to not only learn to but to use that inspiration as fuel to improve your own photography and art.

One thing that’s fun to do is go to your local library or large bookstore and just peruse the photography section. Sometimes there is something magic about seeing actual prints.

Another suggestion would be to visit your local art gallery or just take a look at local photography events on

All of this with the idea that the more you can soak up in terms of inspiration and knowledge the better off your own experience with photography will be. And thus, your images will be better.

I hope this helps and I look forward to seeing you on the next assignment.
