Research: Photographers - Anton Corbijn

Inspiration is highly important in any creative field, which is why I decided to research some photographers that I feel have cool styles. It will be useful for when I come to take photographs, as I can picture what I want them to look like.

Anton Corbijn

Corbijn is renowned for shooting in black and white film, and has perfected his monochrome style: the dramatic contrasts produced by B&W film are stunning and Corbijn uses this to create gritty, realistic photos. For me personally, I wouldn't adopt a monochrome approach to my magazine, as I feel that the genre of shoegaze involves lots of deep colours and tones - something that B&W simply doesn't offer. Despite this, Corbijn's skill behind the lens is mind-boggling and highly inspiring!
