I’ve recently become a subscriber on Feedly. It’s the best. I’ve always wanted to follow blogs regularly, but could never remember to dig them out of my bookmarks. I would end up following the author on Facebook, and even that was hit or miss.
Now that I’m a regular Feedly subscriber it’s super easy to keep up with everything. (This is not a sponsored post. I just legitimately love this service.) Yesterday and today my feeds were filled with year-end recaps – Some seriously inspiring stuff.
I’ve attempted to do year end posts before, picking my favorite images – my favorite moments from a year, and it seems like the most overwhelming task ever.
One year I spent 5+ hours building a post. It never saw the light of day.
This post is different. This past year was different. The way I shoot is different. The way I feel while I shoot is different.
I constantly feel like an angsty teenager trying to figure myself out, and it’s most telling in my work.
The iPhone has changed the way I take pictures. I can’t decide if it’s for the best or not. There are shots I get that I would never get with my camera. I’ve become slow with the camera at home. More deliberate. I’ve become too dependent on my iPhone for pictures from our daily lives. As I type this entry I have 6,427 pictures on my phone. Six thousand, four hundred, and twenty seven… that’s just from the last eight months. (and it doesn’t count all the pictures I’ve deleted.)
Between my DSLRs, Lomos, and iPhone I have easily taken 40,000+ images this year.
Here are 89 of MY favorite pictures taken on DSLRs from 2014. A mix of both my personal and professional world. (I may make an iPhone post…. maybe.)
I started with 100, but while I was adding captions it whittled down to 89 88.
I hope 2015 brings you all amazing things. I can’t wait to see where 2015 brings us.
