Here we are already, it’s the middle of May and just around the corner we’ll be into the EOFY sale period. I can’t believe we are so close to half of 2014 gone already. This got me thinking and reflecting on my photography this year so I thought today I would share with you my top 5 favourite photos so far of 2014.
January – so much to choose from this month, day trip to Toowoomba, holidays at the beach and spur of the moment trips to where ever the car took me, it was a tough decision but for me my favourite photo from January would have to be “looking up at the lighthouse” this photo represents my renewed inspiration to look at objects from all angles and then capture the image. In doing this I allowed my photography to grow and as you can see magic does happen.
February – Back into work mode, long days at the computer and a busy month personally with Birthday’s and Anniversaries. I didn’t pick up the camera as much as I wanted but when I did I found myself heading into the studio and this brings me to my favourite photo from February “Dare to Dream” I love this photo, to me it represents that it is worth dreaming and planning for great things to come into your future. I love Paris and I know one day I will get there to photograph the Eiffel Tower. In the meantime my Paris suitcase will just have to make do.
March – Wow this is a hard one, I had two amazing studio shoots this month, both of these ladies were stunning so it is very difficult to choose between them, since it is my choice and my blog 😉 I am going to share my favourite from each shoot. Jaz is a strong woman (Her story has been already shared with you through my blog) and my favourite photo of Jaz shows both her soft and strong side in the one photo. My other lovely woman, Heather, has the most striking red/pink hair and a skin complexion most of us would die for. My favourite photo from our session is a close up showing Heather’s soul piercing eyes and all that hair and skin beauty.
April – We are now well into Autumn and alot of my focus this month was on landscapes and those stunning autumn colours. At this time of year, the early morning hours and the late afternoon hours are a photographers dream. Again very hard to pick just one favourite photo but I if I have to I think for me it would be “Autumn Colours” an abstract sunset, showing off all those gorgeous colours of a sunset in a new and interesting way.
May – We are only half way through the month and the magnificent sunsets are still around but this month’s favourite photo is very easy for me to pick, “Exist in Photos – Mother’s Day” I am taking my own advice to you all this year and getting in front of the camera more often. On Mother’s day I got a picture of my mother, my daughter and myself – 3 generations in one place on a special day, celebrating Mother’s Day. What better photo for this month.
I hope you have enjoyed indulging me in a look back over the year so far.
Until next week.
