Blog

Motivation is a photography blog that discusses the creative aspects of photography. The posts will include thoughts about images and their interpretation, photographers and their work, technique, workflow, my ongoing projects, and perhaps even the occasional off topic rant.

180 Degrees

It is often said that before you put away your camera after photographing a scene.....turn around.  Why? Because sometimes what you don't see behind you can be as good or better than what you are focusing on. At the end of September, I posted an image of sunrise over the South Shore of Lake Arthur.  This picture, which is a scene 180 degrees from the sunrise shot, was taken a bit later after the fog had burned off while there was still golden morning light on the scene.  Not better than the first shot, just different.
