Default looking for some inspiration?

It is almost trite to point this out, but if you take photographs and want inspiration then study the artists in other fields. One of my favorites to go back to on a regular basis is Andrew Wyeth. Most only know some of his works. Take a few minutes to watch this slide video of a good selection of his work.

True art is always an inspiration. If you get a chance stroll around the Dallas Museum of Art, it's free to look at the museum's collection, and photography (at least non-flash) is permitted except for traveling exhibits. I've enjoyed shooting sculpture there a couple of times, as well as seeing all the great paintings.

Don't get up that way often, but will make special effort to try that didn't know about it. We hav he Menil down here at Houston, but lately (last few years) it has been under refurbishment, construction, set up you name it on some part of it all the time)

For a primer on portraits, study Vermeer and Rembrandt.
