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.

The Geometry Series III

I previously posted some thoughts I had about assembling my "geometry" series.  This would be a series of images that are based on simple found geometric lines. The first and second entries that started the series are here and here.

And now I have the third in the series:


Geometric circles formed by the wall of a grain elevator.

For this image I used a telephoto lens to seemingly 'compress' the distance between the two grain silos. Because of the focal length and the distance between the two silos, even at f16 both silos were unable to be rendered sharply at once. Therefore I took two photographs, one focused on the foreground silo and the other focused on the background silo, and merged them together into one photo using focus stacking in order to have both silos in focus.
