What’s one tip you have for a photographer just starting out?
Soak up as much inspiration as you possibly can, from films, literature, photographers you love, illustrators, designers, Instagram/Tumblr/Pinterest, your old family photo albums, anything. Then, find out what it is about the things you’re drawn to that makes them special to you, and keep that in mind as you continue to shoot.
Can you tell us a few of your favorite Tumblrs to follow?
Tamara Lichtenstein, who shoots dreamy, blissed-out analogue photography; Mack-Sam, a gritty, New York-inspired street fashion and lifestyle blog; Diner Porn has gorgeously photographed diner restaurants of America; Things Organized Neatly is photos of things… organized neatly; Menswear Dog; and Mr. DIV, a graphic designer who makes gorgeous, minimal, animated GIFs. Good eye candy.
