Brassaï - One of my favorite things about Brassaï's work is his high use of contrast and black levels. I find photographs like this very interesting, where you're not entirely sure of what you are looking at or where it is set. This photograph could be taken in any city in the world. I want to take from Brassaï's style his element of mystery.

Thomas Struth "Paradise" - this is one of my favorite photographs by Struth, while at a glance it appears to be very simple, the photograph has a depth and focus to it that is surreal. The use of the available lighting is another reason as to why I selected this image. I want to recreate something like this for one of my photographs.

Siri Hayes  - What drew my attention to this image was the large area of complete shadows in the background. It gives the illusion/impression that the trees are appearing out of  nowhere, giving the photograph a surrealist feeling.

"Citizen Kane" Gregg Toland (film/cinematography) - the use of lighting in this photograph to set the scene and to highlight on a specific subject is what initially captured my attention. The silhouettes in the scene add to that sense of mystery. I want to incorporate this use of singular ray of light to emphasize on a specific subject  in one of my photographs.

Hengki Koentjoro - High contrast, makes the photograph very interesting. I want to recreate this high contrast style, where only the very bright, well-illuminated areas of the scene are shown. This will help me to show that idea of the "wild" "unknown" Australian landscape.

Rachel Haynes "A Dream of Trees" - multiple exposure (not entirely sure what your are looking at).

Thomas Struth "Paradise" - I selected his work for his use of a large format camera to photograph landscapes that have 'no human interference.' I find Struth's images to be very beautiful and what really draws me to them is the amount of depth that is found in each photograph.
