2012: My Favourite Shots of the Year

Howdy Folks!
As this year draws to a close and we ring in 2013, it's a good time to look back on the year passed as we look forward to what the next will bring.
As 2012 saw me develop significantly in a new-found love (photography.  Duh.), I thought it fitting to sum up my year not in my favourite posts, but simply my favourite shots.  
I learned a lot about myself through photography this year.  I discovered a love for candid portraits, food photography, and nature shots.  I learned a lot about composition, colour, balance and emotion.  But best of all, I learned to take my camera nearly everywhere; you never know when the mood will strike, when the lighting will be perfect, when you just need to create a moment that is worth remembering. 

So here's to the moments we all want to remember from 2012.  
Happy New Year



  1. Perfect! And keep it up. I love your photography, and I love these shots, especially the pumpkins.

    The last one - did you use a star filter?

    1. I used a home-made "filter": a circle of black construction paper with a star cut out of it. I taped it to the front of my lens. I'm putting together a more thorough post on the technique :)

      And thanks Gillian!! Always nice to hear :)


  2. All these shots are so wonderful! I can see why they are some of your favorites from the year! I must say I am really loving the bunny crossing sign one, hehe! So cute!

  3. This is such a lovely collection of photos, I've been racking my brain to come up with a way to conclude the year on my blog but haven't been able to come up with anything good. This is such a lovely way of remembering the year. Hope you have an amazing night, and even better 2013 xo
