Some Inspiration

Bil Zelman may well be the best photographer you’ve never heard of. He’s one of the very few photographers who not only shoots weddings, but also does a lot of high-end advertising and editorial shoots. And everything he does, he does with raw honesty. By that I mean his images aren’t overly Photoshopped or treated with the canned action set of the moment. You won’t find any “Diffuse Glow” applied to his images.

In the quest to become a better photographer, it’s so tempting to rely on Photoshop and better, faster equipment - new cameras, bigger lenses, HD video, more megapixels. Bil’s work and words are a perfect reminder that great work comes from within. Inspired work doesn’t come from Photoshop; it comes from the mind and imagination of the photographer.

Anyhow, I’m posting this narrated slide show of Bil’s just to share some creative inspiration.

    Pretty Cool! Thanks, it’s kind to hard to do what nobody has done, seems to me that there is nothing new under the sun, but one should always definitely pursuit one’s unique style, or feeling on your photos!
    Thanks John, Always putting out useful stuff ;)
