It’s fun to go back through the year’s blog posts and look at what I worked on. For this week’s Lens-Artists challenge participants were encouraged to pick some favorites for the past year. I went through the year and from last January picked this image:
ISO 200 22mm f/16 1/400sec
The original blog post it appeared in is here, but I chose it as a favorite because the edits are minimal and the composition simple, two elements that often turn up in my work.
This past year I also launched a weekly wrap up of daily photos taken with my iPhone. From that series, this is a recent favorite:
The original post is here, but this is a favorite photo because I liked the image just as it was and felt no need to edit it.
Many of the photos on this blog end up in some variation on my Instagram or Picfair accounts. From 2019, these were my top 9 on Instagram:
Images in this post that are also on Picfair include the lighthouse and the pig.
So, what’s in the works for Photography Journal Blog in 2020? I’ve enjoyed the Daily Photo Weekly Wrap-Up posts, so look for those to continue. I will also continue to write about my process of editing photos, I like writing out what I have done as a way of thinking about what I have or haven’t accomplished in any given edit. For January, look for two new additions. The first is I will be attempting Becky’s Square Challenge, January’s theme is light and you can read about it and join in here. The second is a 52-week Smartphone Challenge hosted at Island in the Net. I misunderstood the original post and accidentally got a head start of that one, but I will be joining in on the right weeks starting in mid-January.
Overall, I’m hoping for a robust year here on the blog. It will be a challenge! Thanks very much for reading and all the best for 2020 to everyone!
