When I’m looking for ideas for photography, I look for inspiration wherever I can find it.
Recently, I watched Chef’s Table on Netflix. Chef’s Table is a series developed by David Gelb who filmed Jiro Dreams of Sushi. The cinematography in the series is visually rich, the stories are engaging, and the film is escorted by the music from Philip Glass and Vivaldi.
The luscious colors and superior images in the film have inspired me to take my photos to a new higher and more refined level.
Here are a list of documentaries I recommend.
The posters, in and of themselves may be a catalyst for taking risks in my photography.
Most, if not all, of these documentaries can be found on Netflix. You can watch Netflix for free for a month.
