    Black and White Inspiration

    My black and white work is feeling a little monotonous in a different way, lately. I am looking for a high-volume source of inspirational work in black and white to get me out of my rut. Does anyone have suggestions? Contemporary/historic, pro/amateur, curated/free-for-all: any and all is fine by me. Thanks.

    Other than the requisite Flickr groups, of course.

    Lacking a good book, visit a gallery or museum showing some quality historical B&W.

    To find your way out of a rut, the Monthly Shooting Assignment or a print/postcard/blind exchange is a great, great way to start...

    I am feeling stagnant and want something new, so my style is the problem, haha. I actually thought i had subscribed, so I need to figure out what happened with that.

    Prove us wrong about arranged versus found...

    Arrange something that carries it off.

    As I've said, my arrangements always looked stilted. Maybe you can do better.

    If you only photo in daytime, start taking photos only at night time. It's a whole diffferent world. Meeting new challenges invigorates most people.

    Wow, such good suggestions in only one page. I've been feeling stale and useless lately, too. These are a real help.
    All paths are the same: they lead nowhere. Choose the one that has heart.
