belle inspiration









As an aspiring photographer, I am forever inspired by work that pulls me in - anything that makes me catch my breath, pulls at my heart, and gives me a reason to pick up my camera to try and improve upon my skills.







On photographer that I admire greatly is Beatrice Lechtanski of Au fil de.







Yes, I know that I have posted about her before, but her eye for finding beauty in simple subjects is astounding.


~I think this little beauty needs to live in my home...



I love her use of textures to soften her images and give them such depth and beauty.







I spend hours on her various photography sites, studying each photo in hopes of seeing the world as she does, through her lens.





Au fil de truly inspires me.

MODERN Prairie Girl said...

oooooh, I like her too, Kim. She must have the most amazing archive of textures and overlays...I would love to have access to them for just one hour :)

I can see why you're drawn to her...your own images of serene, soft, color-washed and beautiful.

Viewing life through a camera gives one proper perspective, I think.

robinbird said...

ahhh...no suprize here, i also find her to be one of the most inspiring photographers i have yet found on the internet. I seem to be drawn in my own image making to the brilliance of color but her soft tones are what draw me to her work. to use her as inspiration is a challenge i find worth responding to and i sometimes succeed. but as anne marie already pointed out; your pictures are spiritually related to whatever it is that inspires her in this world.
