Social Media has become such a big parts of our lives and not always in a healthy way. Even though we tell ourselves that the posts are only the highlight reel of people’s lives, you have to admit some reels are pretty damn good! I wanted to change my relationship with Instagram and make it a productive tool for both myself and my followers. Yes, I still want the freedom to lust over other people’s vacation picts, but I don’t want that to be the only reason I log on.
So my new plan is this: Every morning I will be posting inspiration photos on my Insta-Story. I was in Napa and San Francisco last week and with all the wine tasting, beautiful views and delicious oysters, I was inspired to find artwork and photography that portrayed the type of photoshoot I would want to do on that day.I think researching new ideas and finding inspiration in unlikely places is the best way to keep the creative mind active, flowing and producing amazing work. It is too easy to reproduce the same concept over and over again. It is so much better to keep adding new influences and creating stories in the photoshoot concepts.
So I hope you follow me with my daily inspiration, and if there is something that stands out for you, comment! I’d love to hear what inspires you.
Here are a few more photos that inspire me today.
