A Year in Review

Below are my favorite photos from each month in 2014. I remember trying to find all of them and realizing that despite thinking myself exceptionally organized, I had to search through a multitude of mislabeled folders on not one but two external hard drives to collect these pictures. When searching through the months between March and May, I became quite discouraged that there were no photos of any value... and then I remembered that I was desperately trying to complete my graduate thesis during that time. I completely forgot that I graduated. Well, it needn't be said, but I'll say it anyway: a lot can happen in a year.

January - the Snowpocalypse in Indianapolis.

February - I was waiting for a client to arrive for their photoshoot. In the meantime, I played around with the free-lensing technique.

August - this month also brings the massive gaming convention GenCon to Indianapolis. I got to take my first Con photos (aside from the tattoo convention some years ago). This was my favorite.

The First Snow

Technically, the first snow of the year happened on Halloween night here in Indianapolis. However, we got our first substantial snowfall yesterday and am now posting the pictures.

I took the photos on the now discontinued FP-3000b film and of course I squandered a few exposures. And I'm still racked with guilt. In my haste to peel apart the film, I dripped melted snow (so water) on the negative of my favorite photo and destroyed it partially. I also ruined another negative this way, but it wasn't nearly as good of a photo.
