19 Creative and Inspirational Photos

If you’re a seasoned photographer you probably remember the days when you first started and the enthusiasm you had to shoot anything and everything, but as time goes by you keep shooting the same photos and it gets monotonous. Creativity is the key to overcoming this obstacle and probably the hardest aspect of photography which doesn’t just apply to amateurs, you’ll find you’re constantly working on this and thinking up new ideas for every shot, even as a professional. Photography is constantly changing, there’s always some new gear, new locations to discover and new creative ways to shoot them.

A few tips to help you get those creative juices flowing is to simply browse other photographers work online, for example on some photography social networking sites like 500px.com or flickr.com. Some other ways could be choosing a theme and starting a new project based on this or a photo challenge such as taking a self portrait of yourself for a month. One good way to practice your creativity if it’s not feasible to carry a DSLR around with you every day is to use your phone, and perhaps try some filters and practice editing them.

Now to get into the inspirational photos, which are all copyright free and will hopefully give you some useful ideas for your next project.
