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.

Light And Shadow

I have previously posted several of the images I have made at the Cathedral of Learning. In making this photograph, I was drawn not only to the way that the columns led up to the ceiling and then seemingly continued as ‘ribs’ across it, but also to the interplay of light and shadow on the ceiling itself.

It’s fascinating to just look up inside the cathedral. A stiff neck and the possibility of injuring yourself by walking into something while looking up are very real risks that are taken when photographing in this location. It’s just one of those risks that we take as photographers!
