Today I want to review some of the images posted here on the blog during the wonderful, exciting year that has been 2012. I also want to share with you some of the images that may not have been posted here but are some of my favorites. My reason for doing this is not just to show you my work but also it is for myself. Sometimes, as a perfectionist, it is easy to get caught up in the striving, in the wanting to make that image, then when you realise what you had wanted for so long, you have it in your possession you forget to celebrate your success to yourself. I have caught myself doing this several times and I think its vital to remind myself of my journey to date and of the road I have traveled since the beginning of the year. No matter what stage you are at with your photography, no matter how good or not so good you feel about it I encourage you to take out your favorite photographic treasures be they big or small and feast your eyes on them and remember how good it felt do this and enjoy the felling of it often. It is by doing this that you learn to create more magic moments like these.
Can I also say here that I have just opened a store on etsy.com where you can purchase my work. At the moment the amount of prints for sale is a tiny proportion of my output but it will grow larger. Also check out my revamped and rebuilt website I have reduced the amount of galleries and pages to make it all a little easier to navigate and I will be adding more images in the future too.
Finally I realise that of late I have been a little remiss in posting here. Without going into all the reasons I can say that in the new year I will be posting with greater regularity on tips and techniques and also showing you more of my new and existing work. I want to wish a very happy Christmas and a happy, prosperous new year to you all. Thank you again for all the support, encouragement and kind comments that you have given to me over 2012, they have been much valued and appreciated.
