2012 has flown by. Now into the final few weeks of the year and it has been a blur on all fronts.
Photographically I have set myself all sorts of challenges this year, from learning new techniques with off camera flash to getting to grips with using 10 stop filters.
This year the blog and website has really got off the ground as well. This has been a great motivator for getting out and getting new images and to really try and improve the quality of what I have been producing.
Ansel Adams is famously quoted as saying “Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop” I’m not sure I could claim to have produced any ‘significant’ photos but I thought I’d share twelve that have stood out for me in 2012.
|Climbing at Portland, maybe not the most dramatic of images but for me it was a step forward with my climbing photography. This was the first photo shoot properly set up on a separate line. It opened up a new world of climbing perspectives.|
|A trip to Chamonix in February proved very fruitful both with action shots and mountain landscapes.|
|The Lake District continues to be a favourite of mine for photography. The overcast june days worked perfectly with the classic rowing skiffs on the edge of Derwent water.|
|Summer time and this year there seemed to be a prolific number of poppies in the fields. I broke from my trend of black and white images to try and capture the fields that were bursting with colour.|
So that's the round up of my year in twelve pictures.
Imogen Cunningham once said “Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow.” If this year has been great for photography I’m sure next year will be even better. That favorite photo is just around the corner.
