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: Timothy Allen

"It can be a trap of the photographer to think that his or her best pictures were the ones that were hardest to get."

Timothy Allen

How true.  The viewer just knows what he or she likes.  They really don't care if you had to camp out in sub-zero weather for a week and wait for hours, while risking your life, for the wind to die down.  If the photo taken in your backyard has more beautiful light and captures the essence of the subject.....that may well be the better image.

I enjoy the fact that photography can be very democratic.
