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.

Finding Your Vision

We all want to find our own unique artistic vision.  It is not a quest that one sets out to do on any particular day....or month or year for that matter.  It is a slow process that involves many, many factors.....some external but most internal.

So how does one foster, find, and express their vision?

I could try naming some of my ideas, but I doubt I would be able to do nearly as good a job as photographer Cole Thompson in his blog post entitled "How I Found My Vision", in which Cole describes how he found, fostered, and developed his personal artistic vision. Cole is a remarkable photographer and one whose work I find so compelling that I have purchased it for myself.  His advice on the concept of finding one's vision is inspirational. Read it here.
