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: Don McCullin

"Photography for me is not looking, it's feeling.  If you can't feel what you're looking at, then you're never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures"

Don McCullin

As my teacher Nancy Rotenberg used to say, you have to go 'beyond the handshake'. This quote further elaborates on that idea.  If I can't feel it nobody else will either, especially when viewers are, by necessity, (since they can only look at a print or computer screen) once removed from the reality I was standing in front of when making the photograph.
