• Work That Inspires You Thread

I guess this should function like a fast thread, just post an image (or images) that inspire you, along with the photographer if you can accurately source. Maybe post an attempt to emulate a style in the Creative Photography thread. I'm going to avoid oldies but goodies and stick to modern ones myself. Tony Katai's work is a huge inspiration to me (check out his photostream) [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/tonykatai/5499224404/][img]http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5099/5499224404_87f174bd96.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/tonykatai/5499224404/]Untitled[/url] by [url=http://www.flickr.com/people/tonykatai/]TONY KATAI[/url], on Flickr [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/tonykatai/5557492336/][img]http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5178/5557492336_d78bf46bdc.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/tonykatai/5557492336/]Untitled[/url] by [url=http://www.flickr.com/people/tonykatai/]TONY KATAI[/url], on Flickr My friend Mike Flaherty is an inspiration to me as well.

H4Z3Y - did you scan the film yourself or at a photo laboratory?
[QUOTE=Crhem van der B;29211697]H4Z3Y - did you scan the film yourself or at a photo laboratory?[/QUOTE] wrong thread I think but... For colour I get the "develop only" service at the lab which gives me my negs in sleeves so that I can come home and scan them with my Epson V500. It only costs $2.50 a roll that way, very economical For black & white (not ilford xp2 though, that's C41) I develop it myself using a dark bag, a developing tank and my laundry. I then cut and sleeve that and again scan it with my V500, after I got all the chemicals it's only a few cents per roll to develop it myself. hope that answers your question!

I've made a secondary tumblr where I just reblog pictures that I like (like everyone else on tumblr). I feel it's relevant to this thread.

Bruce Percy, he does some really incredible work in Scotland. [quote=Bruce Percy]I was born in 1967 to Scottish parents from Sutherland. My father is from Golspie while my mother is from Embo. I live in Edinburgh. I've always been drawn to the arts: drawing and painting as a kid, music composition as a teenager and photography as an adult. My Photography interest was born out of an introduction in the late eighties by a friend that I've known since high school when he purchased a brand new Pentax ME Super. The same friend introduced me to Ansel Adams work and his enthusiasm for what Adams had created drew me in. I was hooked. As I've grown older, I've found that I'm much more attracted to the wilderness and the people that live on the edges of it. Photography is a great way of getting closer to the land and the cultures that inhabit it.
