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.

Self Portrait

In yesterday’s blog entry I wrote about photographing rock surfaces in Oregon and wanted to take the opportunity to show one more image before changing the subject. During that weeklong workshop, one of our assignments was to take a self portrait. This particular assignment was made interesting by the caveat that we need not appear in our own self portrait.

This image, another of the photos that I took at “The Wall”, is the one I used for that assignment……and, yes, I do wear glasses.

I also wanted to mention that, in regards to the topic of photographing rocks, people might be interested at taking a look at the more recent work of Bill Atkinson, who published a book of interesting rock images.
