So it’s that time of year again and although I’m later than most, here is my 2013 review....’13 from 13’
In many ways this was a year of firsts for me (first band shoot, first wedding shoot, first film shoot – for many years anyway) so many of the pictures I’ve selected are perhaps not the best, but are representative of the experience I had taking them. I’ve learnt a lot this year and been given some sound advice from loads of people, mainly on twitter so thanks...you know who you are.
I’ve also tried (and sold) quite a few lenses for my D7000 but ultimately settled on the x-series cameras after shooting for the first time with the x100 at Glastonbury.
So without further ado, my top 13:
And that’s a wrap....2013 is officially closed.
So what’s ahead for 2014? I have a number of areas I’d like to work on, but ultimately I’d like to improve and continue to learn. Some key areas are:
- Shoot more film and try developing some at home.
- Develop better understanding of flash photography.
- Do some more portrait work.
- Print more.....!
The last point is key for me. Similar to my growing love for vinyl, I really believe the physical product is important and is something we shouldn’t lose. Digital is great and convenient and but I want my kids to grow up appreciating the physical media. With that in mind, I’d love to hear your thoughts. Pick and favourite and drop me a comment on why you like it and I’ll pick 3 at random and send you a print. Easy...
I’ll pick these on 17th January so you have plenty of time to post.
Thanks for looking.
