I know a lot of professional and amateur photographers, and I’ve always had an appreciation for photography. The high-quality cameras most of our phones have on them and social media has made most of us try our hand at photography so we’ve all gotten a glimpse at how difficult it can be to get that perfect shot.
I have so much respect for photographers who have truly perfected their craft, who really know how to frame amazing shots and create breathtaking photographs. Although writing is my main art form, I continue to draw a great deal of inspiration from other art forms. Those of you who subscribe to my weekly creativity tips mailing list know I always include a photo of the week.
Photography can help us to see the world differently. It can show us things that we would never get to see in real life. It can help us to find new perspectives and see people from new angles. Literally and figuratively. Photography can inspire us as writers, musicians, actors, or just creative people in general. So here are 10 inspiring photography blogs for those of us who enjoy looking at amazing photographs.
