I find inspiration (to create) in many different people, places & things... Other photographers that I think are amazing, a box of crayons, the multi-colored push pins on my tack board, listening to creative visionaries speak, watching, listening to and interacting with my niece and nephew, staring out the window from my seat at 33,000 feet and of course from movies.
On occasion I'll watch a film (or better yet a movie) from a purely entertainment perspective, but more often I find myself watching films (the same movie) from a creative perspective. Yes...for me - entertainment = "movie", creative = "film". What I'm watching doesn't change - just my perspective.
I love collecting DVDs of some of my favorites and currently have about 200...not bad... (I know someone with well over 400 DVDs). So whenever I can, I'll pull out a stack of DVDs from my "library" to be entertained, inspired - or if I'm feeling wild & crazy...a little of both - entertained and inspired! Here's what I've been watching (re-watching) lately...
Where do you find inspiration?
