Looking back at 2018

As 2018 draws to an end it is a time to reflect on the highs and lows of the year. So today I am going to be looking back at 2018 – my photographic journey.

The Highs

I started the year sharing a blog post about my new light pad and the plans I had for capturing some new and interesting photos using it. 

I have enjoyed using this gadget this year as it has allowed me to capture flowers in a new way.

Also at the beginning of the year I discovered that I had been awarded the photographer’s bar from The Guild of Photographers. This gave me a huge boost to my confidence!

It has also been a fantastic year for me personally as I have been learning new skills and developing new techniques. These continued improvements have resulted in a collection of bronze awards from The Guild of Photographers. 

I have created an ebook allowing you to find out what can be seen and photographed throughout the seasons.

Photo Projects

I have spent a great deal of time exploring my style and experimenting with alternative genres of photography. This year I have pushed myself out of my comfort zone. I have photographed a newborn baby,  some pet portraits and carried out a commercial shoot in a warehouse. I have also continued to build my Redbubble shop and added more content to my stock photography sites.  

The Lows

It hasn’t all be plain sailing for me this year. I have really struggled to “feel creative”. Even though I have had plenty of photo opportunities come my way. I have struggled with finding inspiration in my own time. Back in July I was really struggling with this and took myself off on a 50:50:50 challenge. This helped a lot to get me more focussed.

So, for now, I will keep taking photographs that I love, and inspires me. And I hope in turn that others continue to enjoy looking at them!
