So, 2010 was a pretty good year. I shot a fair amount and was fortunate enough to have quite a few of my images published. I took a quick spin through my 2010 catalog and these are some of the images that stood out and are some of my favorites. I would loosely classify the first set as more action oriented images. I really enjoy photographing these types of things. As a participant in many of these things it’s much clearer in my mind the image that I’m attempting to capture. I know what moment I’m looking for or the feeling I’m hoping to convey and I’m more aware of the elements required to express that which is in my mind. However, there is always room for improvement and in 2011 I hope to do nothing more than keep shooting and continue refining my ability to communicate what it feels like to be out there doing these sports.
The second series of images in this post could be loosely classified as portraits. This is an area of photography where I would like to spend a little more time. I think I’ve got a handle on exposure and lighting, but it’s the ability to make someone comfortable in front of the camera and then to capture a frame that really says something about the person at that moment in that location that I know I could be better at. Right now those moments seem like accidents and chance… I’d like to get to a point where it’s more of a skill, something reproducible.
Anyway, I hope everyone enjoys the images. Happy New Year… and good luck in 2011!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
