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.


I like taking photographs of statues, but as I was looking through some of them I realized they looked sort of bland. They looked, well, just like statues. I decided I was going to have some 'creative play' and see what I could come up with that might give them a deeper feeling.

I liked the result from processing this one as a high contrast black and white. Something about it just seems to 'speak to me'. I may have to try similar processing on some of my other statue photos to see what happens.
