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.

Framing

Back to the Cathedral of Learning, an educational building that is part of the University of Pittsburgh. One of the things that I have enjoyed about photographing in the cathedral is that there are lots of doorways and openings as well as small nooks and crannies to explore. The plethora of doorways and arches give ample opportunity for ‘framing’ compositions with related elements, as seen in this photograph. This one is actually ‘frame in frame’, as the second arch serves as a frame to the back wall. It really find it quite enjoyable to search for these types of photographs.
