2018: A Photography Retrospective

Hi Folks:

As we close out 2018, many photographers choose to offer their best 10 or 12 images of the year. We did something similar with our 2019 Photo Calendars post, but we wanted to offer our favourite images from the year as well. Perhaps not coincidentally, they were both featured in our upcoming calendar.

Marcia’s first:
Dew DropsVictoria is known as the city of flowers, and Marcia loves to do flower macros. The timing on this one allowed her to capture some of the morning’s moisture as well, and if you look in the spheres you can see continuing reflections of the flowers!

And Mike’s:
Coquihalla RiverThis is a composite image of 30 images, made on the trail near the Othello Tunnels outside of Hope, BC. Fortunately it was a relatively windless day, so the images stacked together added to the sense of flow in the water without too much movement in the leaves on shore.

Creating a retrospective is a worthwhile exercise for every photographer. We went through over 12,000 images to choose the 12 for our calendar images! With digital it’s easy to shoot a thousand images a day, but how many of them are your best work?

Now go out and make some images!

Hugs,
M&M

  • Absolutely beautiful photographs. You know I'm a sucker for flower macros but I truly also love the way you captured the moving water. I'm taking a course right now in photography – hoping it helps and I've gotten a monopod as well as a tripod that also converts into a monopod which is better quality than the first monopod I got. I haven't been out much due to the cold weather, and I'm still working on things but I am optimistic.

    You both are an inspiration!

    I think mostly a photographer must have attention about Subject , Light, camera, and finally a photography mind.
