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.

Quick Quotes: Elliot Erwitt

"To me, photography is an art of observation.  It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place....I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them."

Elliot Erwitt

I love when I find a quote that speaks to the ability to find beauty and photographic interest in where you are, rather than feeding into the desire to seek out exotic destinations. I have always felt that the photographs that move me the most are ones where photography and someone's vision has been used to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary!
