This view of the corridor spoke to me on a creative level little thought was involved in the construction of the composition. I've learned to follow the explore inspirations when an aspect of a design calls out to me. These always end up as  the best images from a project.

This image was shot with my 4x5 view camera and transparency film using only available light. This is one of the many images in my portfolio where the composition and technical execution fell into place with little conscious effort. If I had applied critical thinking I probably would have shot a horizontal image that did not include the large dark skylight in the upper foreground.  

When an image calls to my creative mind in a way that I cannot fully explain I’ve learned to go with it, consciously analyzing the qualities and advantages of the composition after the fact. Of the twelve images in this education-specific gallery, nine of them were created in this manner.
