Year In Review - 2012
Photo wise this wasn't a big year for me, personally though, it was huge. And despite what has happened, and all that has changed, i'm in a better place, i think i'm even happier than i was a year ago, so i hardly feel like complaining.
As far as what i wanted to do with my photography, i DID manage to at least start playing around with more mixed media stuff, which has been great. And i did some graphic stuff too [which i included] since it was a nice little fun photo break for me. But given a few different things, i wasn't able to work with many people [in fact, i only worked with one!] so that kind of sucks. At least i tried though! And given that i'm starting school soon, i don't know how things will work out in 2013. I might be too busy, or working on images might give me the break from school stuff that i need. Will just have to wait and see how things play out.
Otherwise, find i don't have too much to say! I'm not over the moon with most of what i made, but i'm not disappointed either, i'm in a weird, sort of centered place where i'm chill and it's all good. I'm more interested in next year, and the one after that, and on and on. And i guess that, despite my still doing these year in reviews, i feel less concerned with how much or what i got done in x amount of time. Nice to look back, but not to dwell. And it doesn't kill me anymore when i have a less than perfect year. Yay! Progress!
Generally, for 2013, i hope to work on more mixed media stuff, and maybe do some collaborating with other people. Honestly, i just wants things to go well, and i want to keep moving forward, hopefully learning and improving further along the way, i don't care about specifics. =)
Before the images though, i shared a lot of stuff this past year on my blog. Some of it was about plans that didn't happen, or plans that i tried, realized sucked, and dropped immediately, and some of it was just sharing my opinion of things. And some of these posts were well liked, so i figured i'd share links to a few of them:
I had an art contest! [I should do that again.] Contest Results!
And then my little feature on 3 of my fav ladies! a little love for some 'old timers' - 3 amazing photographers
There were one or two others, but i'm getting hungry and lazy. Ha!
Now, onto the images! There isn't too much that i didn't post before, i've gotten a lot better of choosing the best images and not hanging on to ones i don't like or need.
