Inspirational Photos

Sometimes people like to post inspirational photographs of landscapes and stuff right? But I find that often the photos seem to be more representational, and less artistic. Having the mentality of an art photographer instead of a representational photographer can help in aquarium photography. I wanted to show people some of the photos I've fav'd at Deviantart as examples of real "art photography"

I routinely add tons of the newest/coolest nature photography put up by other artists at deviantart in my "favorites gallery." It's a tool we use to give each other props at devart. If you want to see more photos like these, you can browse through my favorite photos at my Deviantart site (linked in sig through banner) or just browse deviantart yourself.

As a nice bonus, by favoriting a piece, the artist often swings by your own site to say thanks. By faving a lot of pieces I'm showing a lot of people what aquascaping is.

If you are confident in your aquascaping/photography, I'd urge you to make a deviantart site too and help me show more people our art form. And we can buddy each other.
