This week it feels like we’re finally climbing out of the cold dark cave of winter here. I must admit that there has been a significant lack of shooting around these parts over the past few months. Sadly, motivation to shoot has been in short supply. However, with a return to spring I’m feeling a general upswing in optimism and a gentle pull back to my cameras.
Even though I haven’t been shooting much I have been enjoying the gorgeous images that come to me via my Instagram feed (including those of many readers of this site!). This time of year though, as I open the windows of my house to let the fresh air in, I’m thinking about how to freshen my sources of photographic inspiration, including my Instagram feed. Here are a few sources that I’ve found to help me :
The #mortalmuses hashtag (of course!)
The Instagram blog where they feature great photos and photographers
Instagram Talk features their Instagrammer of the Day, as well as interviews with inspiring Instagrammers
And finally, if I have some time, I try to ‘piggyback’ on the people who inspire me by looking at who inspires them (that is, looking at who the inspiring photographers that I follow are following).
How about you? Are you feeling the need to spring clean your Instagram feed? What are your favourite sources of Instagram inspiration?
