Each year, I like to perform a retrospective on my photography from the last twelve months. Because of my geeky nature, I like to perform a cursory statistical analysis of what I shot and contrast that to what has gone before. The pictures chosen are picked by month and typically represent a favorite image to me. I don’t always pick the best image shot, or the best-selling image but I do pick the one that means the most to me. Usually it represents an evolution or event in my growth as a photographer.
- 8 of 12 images contain people (3 last year)
- 4 of 12 images are monochromatic in nature (none last year)
- 3 of 12 images are pure landscape (same as last year)
- 0 of 12 images are of animals (4 last year)
- 7 of 12 images are taken at Fleeting Glimpse Studios (4 last year)
- Crops: 6 Portrait, 6 Landscape(Last year 2 Portrait, 2 Square, 8 Landscape)
- HDR: 3 images (Last Year 3 Images)
What I glean from this is that I have shifted in 2011 toward a more people-centric subject choice and have explored black and white a little more. There are fewer wildlife shots and more shots in-studio. Doubtless those on the outside looking in will see other differences as well. All in all it is a good exercise to see where you are going and where you have been.
Without further adieu, my favorite images, by month of 2011. Thanks for hanging with me this year.
