A year in review. Wait! What?!
Hello World! I have been thinking about you all this past year. Proof is several unfinished posts. 😮 They will eventually get posted sometime this year. One post needs a bit more research though. Ah, yes, the scientist is still inside waiting to be unleashed into research mode.
Let’s see, to catch you up on what’s been happening the past year, let me think. Now, I know you’re probably thinking this kind of post should have posted at the first of the year and January’s just about over (okay, it is over). Umm…well…I’m in time for Chinese New Year. Yes, that’s it! I follow the lunisolar calendar rather than the Julian calendar. 😉
Alright, last year I decided to get going on food photography again since after graduation (which seems and is a long time ago) I was working on my architectural/real estate photography skills. For most of the year I photographed food interspersed with product and architectural work. I found that as much as I enjoy product and architectural work, I think I like food even more. I just need to find vegetarian and vegan based food clients (and pastry chefs, bakers) and I will be in heaven! Well, I can’t ignore being in nature though!
Last year, I also entered a food photo contest as a professional. A first for me. Here’s a few of the images I entered.
I want to include the (purple) medieval one in my portfolio update but at the moment, I don’t think it fits in with the other images but we’ll see. I’m still deciding on which ones I want to include. I’ve also been trying to update my website with a new template for way too long now but it’s been a bit of a challenge using the new software. It’s probably time for me to make a new self portrait as well.
Plans for this year is to continue with my food photography and to get more serious about my landscape/nature photography. I have been getting great inspiration as well as views of beautiful pre-dawn and dawn skies (and sometimes dusk). I’ve always been driving on my way somewhere so I haven’t been able to take the time and find a really nice landscape to compliment the skies to capture in camera.
That’s all I have for now. Thanks for visiting! 🙂
