Rather than try and pick our best images for the year (what does ‘best’ mean anyway?), we thought we would share with you images that reinforced lessons for us:
Lesson 1: Film is still fun and nothing beats getting it right in the camera!
Lesson 2: Toy cameras such as the Holgas give unpredictable but funky results. Forget Instagram, this is the real thing!
Lesson 3: Short telephoto lenses are perfect for intimate landscape photography!
Lesson 4: Wildlife does not have to fill the frame to make interesting environmental portraits.
Lesson 5: The object doesn’t really matter — but composition and light are king. There’s magic in the everyday!
Lesson 6: We love long exposures during the day.
Lesson 7: Sometimes having fun and experiencing nature is way more important than photography!
Lesson 8: Shoot a variety of things to avoid a creative rut and keep working on your photo skills.
Lesson 9: The value of projects is not to be underestimated for feeding your creative soul!
Lesson 10: Shoot what’s important to you.
