Recently some of my images have taken on a darker tone. I don’t know if this is influenced by other photographers I admire and spending time viewing their work or my continuing interest in creating high contrast images. I’m sure it has a little to do with both, it’s impossible not to be influenced by others work that is very much admired. I think we’re all influenced by those around us whom we admire, regardless of whether it’s in our work or personal life.
In a couple of months I’m going to be taking a workshop with two photographers that I greatly admire, Joel Tjintjelaar and Julia Anna Gospodarou, if you’re not familiar with their work I would strongly encourage you to become familiar. Both do long exposure architectural photography that is breathtaking! While I don’t do long exposure photography myself and at this point don’t really have any plans to start, there is something about their style that seems to be seeping into my subconscious and showing up in the way I process my images.
My two favorite images from today are prime examples of this.
I’d love to know who influences you and your work! Feel free to comment below and link your work and the work of those you admire. It’s always great to discover other talent, whether related to photography or another field. Thanks for sharing!
