Lens-Artists Photo Challange 160: “My inspiration”

Summer is over? When looking at the calendar, it’s not over yet. But, when looking at the weather, you might think we already have fall here in western Germany. Nevertheless, the pause for our main hosts is over and Patti is hosting this week’s LAPC. Look at her site, to see, how to participate.

When doing some analysis on your photo archive, you can see, what really inspires you, even if you did not notice it yourself. My inspiration is the beauty of nature: landscapes, flowers, pretty ladies, and colorful birds are populating huge parts of my archive. On the other hand, you won’t find many cityscapes, architecture, tech, or still lives despite I do them every now and then.

You need to do some research on the weather and light conditions as well as light directions. Maybe you have to get up early or go to bed late at night (didn’t I say morning). Try to understand the customs and behaviors of the animals I want to capture.


In the past, I already introduced you to some pieces of software, being able to support you’re analyzing your photo archive. The AI analyzes and tags your images. When done, you can i.e. lookup, how many images of yours are tagged with a certain keyword. This helps you understand where your most active field of photography is.

In case, you’re interested in giving Excire Foto a try, there’s a free trial available for download. When you’re willing to buy a copy, you can use EXCIREFIRE20 at checkout to save 20%.

  1. As I too have nature as my major inspiration – I totally enjoyed your collection here. Excellent all of them, and places I will never see…thank you for the inspiration!

  2. Well Andre, it’s a shame you didn’t have any good images for your post LOL! As always, all are wonderful but for me your birds are spectacular – and I do love your foggy image as well. Inspirational indeed.
