7 Inspirational Photographers | Tuesdays with Lauri

By Lauri L. on November 27th 2012

Inspiration is very important to me when I try to come up with new concepts and ideas for my photos. Sometimes taking a look at other photographers and their work can do the trick. That is why, this week, I decided to compile a list of seven great photographers that have inspired me in the past, and will also hopefully inspire you. Here we go, first up is Art Streiber.

     wonderful just wonderful , I hate the photo/shop vs Photographer argument . They are ARTISTS period and I really appreciate you showing us their work . Sometimes when I see such talent I get discouraged myself ( I don’t own PS ) but then I get back in the saddle and think wow so much to learn .

      Photoshop is not the only thing that makes their pictures amazing. There are also the use of lights and the staging. 
      I can’t stand people who say photoshop is not photography.

      That’s kind of a sad perspective.
