Inspiration Wednesday #6

Today's Inspiration: Charles Clay

So Charles, I actually know Charles. We had an entrepreneurship skills class together this last semester and got put in the same group for the 100 business challenge. I remember one day our teacher told us to turn to the person next to us and tell them what our dream job was. I knew nothing about him at this point, so I just started going on and on about how I want to be a photographer and while I'm saying all this he just starts smiling and shaking his head. I finally shut up and asked him why he was smiling. That's when I found out he does photography and thought I was insane for majoring in it, haha. Whatever, that's his opinion, i've come to respect that. So this guy, he does photography on the side and is absolutely amazing at it. Learned a ton from talking to him. Check these out:

Love all his work. Check out his site here.

Inspiration Wednesday #5

Today's Inspiration: Brittany Dewester

Brittany is another person I randomly found on Flickr one day. She's a lot like Rosie Hardy in the way that she takes self portraits and stuff, but the difference between the two is the feeling they bring to their pictures. Brittany has more of a bright, happy, colorful feel that I absolutely adore. As I've been trying to figure out how I want my photography to look, she's been a big inspiration in the way that she uses light and color. I was looking through her work one day and stumbled upon this:

Gorgeous, right? So me and my roommates decided it'd be fun to make something like this one. Here's my favorite:

Super fun :) Love love love her work. Here's a few other things she's done, enjoy!:

Oh goodness did I love every single thing about this shoot! Especially the catching up with my gorgeous friend, Lisa, part. She's pretty much a babe and a half. Here's some of my favorite pictures from it:

Inspiration Wednesday #4

It's probably obvious from the last few of these, but music and music videos inspire me quite a bit. Today's Inspiration Wednesday is no exception.

Imogen Heap

This girl, wow, she's fantastic. I kind of panic when I've met people who haven't heard her music before 'cause it's just that good and I instantly have to fix that. Here's a few of my personal favorites:

(this one technically is Frou Frou, the band she used to be in, but whatever :) )

Inspiration Wednesday #2 and #3

Soooo...I may or may not have gotten a little behind on my Inspirational Wednesday. But, I'm about to make up for all that right now with two instead of one, yay! :)

First of, Rosie Hardy!

Rosie Hardy is this amazing photographer that I just randomly found on Flickr one day. Her stuff is AMAZING! Her creativity is off the charts! What makes it even more amazing is most of her stuff is self portraits. Gosh, that just blows my mind. Here, I just have to show you some of the amazingness:

Amazing, right? Absolutely love her work! Totally inspires me to do crazy things with my photography. I mean, imagine if someone's senior pictures looked like that! That'd be so sweet!

Next, we have Sigur Ros:

I'll admit, the first time you listen to a lot of Sigur Ros stuff, you're probably going to think it's sorta weird. I sure did. But after giving them a fair chance, it's a band that's really grown on me. They're super chill and great to listen to while editing :)
