I love collecting items around the web for my photography inspiration. the style i like when come to photography is more into personal things around my life. I am not into a street photography, candid photography, nature/landscape - it is more sentimental object/ things around my daily life.
they are fun to take a look at as well as preparing the set for photo taking. Off course, if you are a collector it will help a lot as you will have more object to photograph with.
I found a very useful tutorial for photography here:
1. Learning about Light and additional support material
2. Theme, color pallets and gathering the object
3. Photo editing
4. textures, color and more theme
have fun trying it! cheers!
