How Do You Get Inspired - and Stay Inspired?

All artists - and as a photographer you are an artist - need inspiration.

Photographers get inspired in many different ways: looking at the work of others, challenging themselves with new techniques, shooting with other photographers . . . and maybe even just going for a walk.

If you are seeking creative ideas, go out walking. Angels whisper to a man when he goes for a walk.  – Raymond Inmon

Reading is an another was to get inspired and grow.

The more that you read, the more things you will know  – Dr. Seuss

Getting inspired is one thing - staying inspired is another.

As photographers, I feel as though we are all in this together. If you have a technique for getting and staying inspired, please share it here in the blog comments - as opposed to on Facebook, Google+ etc. That way, all the positive thoughts will be in one place for all to see.

I write when I'm inspired, and I see to it that I'm inspired at nine o'clock every morning. – Peter De Varies 

Thank you.
