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.

Blue Period

Don't most artists have a 'Blue Period"? Well, here is one from my own blue period :)

Lake Superior Abstract

This is a long exposure of Lake Superior from my recent trip to Michigan's Upper Peninsula.  I liked the simple juxtaposition of the different shades of blue with the hard edge between them contrasted with the soft edge of the clouds. The long exposure was to smooth out and simplify the water in order to make the image a contrast of colors alone without having to think about 'what it is'. I also willingly broke the 'don't cut the frame in half' rule.
