"If one of your peers can do it, than you can too." That is what many believe or find it easier to relate with someone of your age for inspiration. I tend to agree and find it quite inspirational to view friend's photography so first in the list:
- Jim's Flickr account. Jim and I went to high school together and I never knew he had an interest in photography. He takes amazing pictures. I love macro shots and many of Jim's photos are Macro (close up) shots. Among his many photos, a recent photo of his, if you go to the site, is not a macro shot, but a photo that amazes me every time. A picture of a storm and a lightning bolt. I must say, that a picture of a lightning bolt takes patience and talent.
- Next is Shutterpoint. Shutterpoint has pictures that'll make you melt and if you take amazing pictures, you can register an account and sell your pictures online for any price you want. I used a simmilar site (I don't remember the URL) and submited some of my best photography, not to sell it, but get feeback, and that is a great way to learn. My pathetic pictures did not match with the surrounding professionals, and I was given nice and educational comments and I reccommend a person do that.
- Mike Muizebelt delivers a great round of macro shots of nature. Nature photos are my weakness so macro nature photos just brighten my day.
- Speaking of nature, this site is not updated (I don't think) but provides some fantastic views of tornados and storms. Check it out!
