The beauty of the project was that it required me to have my camera in my hands every single day, honing my photographic eye and forcing me to look at the world for visual opportunities.
I’ve continued the project, and 2014 marked my fourth year of the 365 project. If you’re counting, that's four years and 1,461 photographs (one of the years was a leap year).
This is a small wrap-up of 2014. Following are some of the highlights of my work for the year, but certainly not all of my work.
"Mirrored Past" was shot on an abandoned dairy farm in Loudoun County, Virginia. Shooting from an angle into the mirror allowed me to catch the room, it's emptiness, and is an attempt to see into the farm's past. It was also my first piece to be juried into an exhibit at the Torpedo Factory's Art League Gallery.
"Christmas Rose," marks the beginning of my exploration of transforming photographs into digital works of art. I shot the winter rose in the snow and used digital paint brushes and textures to create the work.
In 2014, I continued working with still-life images. I love the challenge of composing a scene and then capturing the story with a photograph. "Peach on a Windowsill" is one such composition, it speaks of summer to me.
This photograph, "Bicycle," was shot on a Santa Fe back porch. It's not your usual New Mexico image.
