Next time you find yourself browsing through photos on 500px or Instagram, why not switch it up a little bit and check out TheRedList.com. It’s an online database that’s chock full of incredible photographs taken by some of history’s most beloved photographers. Plus, it’s highly organized–first by genre, then by photographer.
So, for example, say you have a hankering to get your landscape photography fix. Just click landscapes, pick your photographer, then arrow through the portfolio. Instant inspiration!
There are 17 total photography genres to choose from and just about everything is covered. And, if you get bored with photography, the website also has databases on set design, fine arts, film, graphic design, and a few other categories to dive into as well. According to the non-profit’s manifesto, they’re looking into adding even more categories in the near future.
“With more than 100,000 images, 6,000 profiles and links, arranged into more than 600 sections and categories, the Red List organizes and concentrates the wealth of images to be found online.”
The website is free to use, but after spending a few minutes browsing you’ll be asked to enter your email address to continue. Kinda pesky, but worth it you like learning about technique by studying the work of the masters.
