Whenever I need a little inspiration, I look at images by travel photographer Timothy Allen. They always blow me away.
Take this image that he posted recently on his Facebook page celebrating his return to Mongolia, a destination he fell in love with while shooting the stills for BBC’s Human Planet. (For anyone that’s interested, he also leads two photographic tours there every year.) It’s just breathtaking. Can’t you feel the cold outside? I can imagine myself huddling there with the rest of the group sipping tea, or whatever it is that they’re drinking. Immediately you get a sense of place that’s utterly captivating. I love how one person is looking at the camera while others are in engaged in conversation, as if the viewer is taking the picture. I love the rich gold of the wood and the framing of the beams on the sides of the image and overhead. The shadows add a sense of drama and mystery.
