It's been a busy year. Between school, work and everything else, I haven't shot nearly as much as I have in the past. Here are my favorite photos:
In May Mushna and I took a vacation to Moab.
In June I took some 2 year old photos of my Nephew Rylan for my sister. He wasn't having it at all, but I did manage to get a couple of good shots:
Soon after that, I ended up doing some photos for my cousin Blaise. He wasn't happy to get his photos taken either, but he did get a little more cooperative:
My friend Dave asked me to send him a few photos for him:
In August, Mushna and I visited San Francisco and did a Photowalk with one of my Flickr friends, Deborah:
We also saw Alcatraz:
The Golden Gate Bridge:
This fall we visited the Alpine Loop and Cascade Springs. I used this trip to practice some natural light portraiture:
On a very cold overcast morning, I shot the Christmas card photos for my sister's veterinary office, The Riverwoods Pet Hospital:
In September, my Grandpa was honored before the BYU vs Utah football game for his military service. He fired the cannon to start the game:
And finally, a few weeks ago I shot my sister's Christmas Card photos:
Probably the best photo this year was this one:
It was chosen as one of the top 5 photos in the Flickr group for Alien Skin and as a result, I won their photo bundle of software. Pretty exciting stuff.
I guess my new years resolution is to get out and shoot more next year. I have been so busy I didn't even realize how little I've shot this year. Mushna gave me a B+W 110 Neutral Density filter so I'm definitely looking at getting into more landscape photography. For some examples of what this filter is capable of, look through this Flickr group:
