I find my work to be most inspired by natural settings and beautiful views. Especially in this day an age, it is a welcomed change of pace to be in a quiet and peaceful place without the many distractions a city hosts. Just the sights and sounds.
Although there are already a few photography orientated threads, I thought it would be nice to have one dedicated only to nature. A place to become inspired by our beautiful planet on a rainy day, at 3am or simply if you don’t want to leave the house. All are welcome.
if any of you follow my instagram, you may notice I love the ocean. I can never be tired of the seemingly endless waters…
Nice thread idea! I feel intensely inspired by the outdoors, especially (being in a tree-filled country) the experience of the textures, sounds, smells of forests. When doing music, I think at least one aim is nearly always to express some kind of relationship, usually via granular mangling of some sort, with this kind of texture:
My favourite things about the place were the very distinctive colour palette (those muted greens!) and characterful lava formations.
I’ve since moved to Germany, which, despite lacking the drama of Iceland, has it’s own charms, such as being full of oak trees. Thunderstorms, mist, interesting clouds and beautiful yellow light are also some perks.
This is my kind of thread. I always think about nature as a construct in and of itself, imbued with human characteristics simply through coexistence. My photos tend to reflect that point of view. Footsteps in the sand, a single ship sailing in a sea of blue, a guard rail along the side of a road.
Recently inherited my father’s old Olympus OM-2 35mm camera and it’s inspired a new appreciation for photography in me. Every shot, every moment, requires a careful consideration when you have a limited number of frames (and have to pay for each one…). This helps me participate in life, in whatever moment or place I find myself. I also love the experimental nature of film, especially as a beginner when you’re pretty unsure of how a photo will come out!
Here are a few shots of a recent trip to the Flatirons in Boulder, CO.
Very nice photos everyone!
I ‘discovered’ photography only very recently, but now I’m hooked! I shoot with my iPhone 5s, canon 1000d (with a 50mm lens) and an Olympus OM10 (also with a 50mm). Here are a couple of recent shots:
