Our year through the lens

29 Jan

Two thousand and eleven – what a year it has been. Mel and I have been able to see and do some amazing things that we feel very grateful to have had the chance to do. However this was the year that I took my photography to another level. Instead of simply pointing and shooting and not giving the images an extra thought, I finally decided to bite the bullet and sign up and complete an online photography course. Last year was the year I was to start ‘creating’ my images and not just capturing them. I started an online course in January and after completing this course in December, I was able to learn many new skills on how to craft great pictures. Two of the images below were taken for my course assessment, but the other 10 were selected because I really like how they are composed and know what effort was involved in creating each shot. Each photo is a representation of something we did in each month of the year and I have added a variety of images to spice things up. Please enjoy the images and feel free to make comments as I am always learning and it helps to have extra eyes look over and critique them. Bring on 2012 with a new camera and lens, so everyone and everything better look out!
