12 FROM 2009

I was sifting through images to create a “12 from 2010” album/blogpost when I remembered my “12 from 2009 was a facebook post, created before this blog existed. So I am reposting it here as a little teaser for the “12 from 2010”, which will be posted tomorrow. Here is the original post from January 1st:

Borrowing an idea from @chromasia (http://tinyurl.com/2pfrq) who borrowed it from Momentary Awe (http://tinyurl.com/694snl) I am publishing 12 pictures from 2009. Both linked posts are without a doubt more interesting than mine, but I enjoyed looking through images of the past year. I saw my growth in both concept and technique, along with my changes in interest and subject matter. Wishing to take my photography more seriously some of my photographic goals for 2010 are:
tripling the amount of pictures I took last year
publishing a website
publishing a blog
building my studio
shooting more portraits
and to keep building my knowledge and experience
My New Year’s Resolution last year was, “I want to take things less seriously.” Honestly I think I did a pretty good job with that, maybe even too good. This year I want to continue to look for a balance between enjoyment and effectiveness with everything I do. After some thought my new resolution is, “I will find thrill and amusement in every possible situation.” I hope you all have a great year and I recommend looking through your pictures and recalling 12 great moments you captured throughout 2009. Happy New Year!

I began to experiment with light and landscapes usually using the sun

Using the bathroom as a darkroom I attempted “light painting” or using a moving flashlight as a paint brush

First event photography with Mr. Litchfield

Trying some wildlife stuff in my backyard… out of a lot of pictures this is the only one I really like

Michael was really excited to be attending prom

We went climbing for my birthday and I got to try a little action photography (I have more of this stuff I will publish soon)

Getting fine-arty in Cape Cod

A reading project for Mr. Bucklin

Some panning at the Fireman’s Parade

I loved this forest we stopped at outside of Flagstaff, Arizona

Blaise spent so much of his year with that Go-Kart we had to grab some pictures

We were visiting my cousins on christmas day and I was very impressed by these “kid-proof” cameras they all have
