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.

The Best Is Yet To Come

I take my photography pretty seriously and, as such, I am a very harsh critic of myself.......as it should be.  Because of this I find that I am rarely really happy with what I produce and constantly feel that I can improve on my image making and post-processing skills.  Sometimes this is a bit disheartening because I find that there is completed work that I feel I could have made better and, since improving takes time, I am not producing as much as I would like.  But at some point one must move on. Nonetheless, a few mornings ago as I was walking to my car my thoughts took another angle that was much more comforting to a person who is trying to produce the best work they can.  What made me smile was the realization that with continuing to work at improving my skills comes the fact that, although I have been making images and prints for many years, my best work is yet to come......

I suspect the same holds true for many people!
