Which Epz Tog's Images Have Inspired You To Improve Yours?

Is there a tog on epz who's images have inspired your photography? and ultimately improved it?

If so...Why and how have you taken elements of their style and included it in your own images?

For me its Adrian Kennerley tomcat

His backgrounds are inspiring on both wildlife and macro images and have made me think before I press the shutter on how the BG is going to turn out and how it will make the subject stand out better in the image.

Post an image if you like to show your improvements....and of course a link to the tog for reference to thier work.

The following photographer, is one who's creativity, photographic skill and technical perfection leaves me in awe every time I view one of his images.

This image
would have to be one of my favourites and it leaves me filled with inspiration every time I see it. Photography at it's very best, IMHO, and a standard to aspire to.

This member has helped me change the way I attempt close up nature maratsuikka My more abstract fungi shots are influenced by his work - different subject but a similar way of exploring

Indeed maratsuikka has a very unique and individual style.

Have You an Image of yours Pete to show the influence of his work in your fungi images?

Yes this sort of thing...

I would previously have "gardened" the photo to remove aspects and make the subject very clean

These photographers have had an influence on my work, particularly the first couple of years of my joining this site. The subject matter, compositions and look of their work connected with me.

First of all, to be included in the OP's original post has truly surprised and humbled meBlush

When I first joined the site, I reckon the two photographers who gave me the inspiration to improve were/are Ade Osman and Cheryl Surry

Ade for his bird photography at the time and Cheryl for some invaluable technical help (her wildlife photography needs no introduction)

The one photographer who keeps me inspired is " Cameracat " Smile

He inspires me to keep trying and maybe just maybe I'll improve in time Grin
