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.

More Gargoyles

I have previously posted several images of gargoyles that I have taken and converted to black and white and subsequently sepia toned.  My specific interest in the gargoyle images is that each one seems to convey a distinct emotion, and I found that the sepia toned images really tend to bring that out by removing the 'distraction' of color.  Over time, and if I can find enough gargoyles that express specific emotions,  I hope to assemble a series with the images named after the underlying expression. The latest one that  I have been working on is entitled 'Intimidation'
