Overall, 2014 was a good year of photographic explorations and blogging. I did some archive posts because of other things I was involved with, and I didn’t finish my video essay (yet). However, I did have some memorable explorations: two new cities, a new park, and some foggy conditions. That and a new camera for higher resolution and video capabilities. I explored and learned a lot. Below are some highlights from 2014:
As usual, I plan to keep blogging every other week and spend a lot of time in nature – all four season are beautiful. I also want to get back into more table top (it’s a skill I need to work at and winter isn’t just beautiful, it’s cold!). Hopefully, I will finish the video, shoot macro, post more good cat photos, and have a few adventures. Only time will tell.
There are only two days left in 2013, but before we rush into the new year, I’m taking a moment to look back at what happened in the last twelve months. 2013 was a fairly stable year for me. In fact, it was probably the most stable year I’ve had in four years or more. A little boring, but stability is good in many ways. When it comes to photography and video, my two biggest accomplishments are reshooting all my commercial photography class projects, especially the pour shot (https://mycameramyfriend.wordpress.com/2013/04/08/the-end-of-the-big-project-pour-shot/), and developing my After Effects skills (https://www.youtube.com/user/gelsn740/videos). Since I’m not completely happy with my black-on-black project, I’ll probably do more black-on-black next year. I also hope to further develop my YouTube channel. Unfortunately, 2014 will probably see more archive posts. I have some non-blog plans that may prohibit shooting and blogging for a few weeks in the spring or summer. Below are some of my photo highlights from 2013.
