    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)

    My friend Mike Flaherty is an inspiration to me as well.

    I don't look around for photos much, so I would say Picks photos inspire me the most.

    That's all I can list off of the top of my head. Most of my inspiration comes from an amalgamation of one-off's that I happen to pass by on flickr or tumblr, etc.

    I like some of Bopies photos but I don't like his style that much, his aren't the kind I would want to shoot (no offence to you Bopie).

    H4Z3Y - did you scan the film yourself or at a photo laboratory?

    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 have to say, I was generally unimpressed with her stuff.
    Although - this one was wonderful:

    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.

    eipob.tumblr.com

    I'm finding myself very drawn to landscapes, so that might be a direction I'm heading in, exciting haha!

    Bruce Percy, he does some really incredible work in Scotland.

    Bruce Percy posted:
    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.

    I know, I shouldn't exactly be inspired by this because there's no way I will ever recreate it, but it still is amazing.
