Archives For Best of 2012

Jim Goldstein, each year, collects together his favourite ‘Best of’ image collected blog post. His personal favourites are ‘***’d. This year, my blog is a lucky recipient :)

Please do visit and check out the best of ‘best of’s! I suggest a few a day as they are numerous!

You’ll find mine at #23 and Suzy Walker’s, my favorite underwater photographer, at #24.

Enjoy

Anemone Fish

It’s that time of year when photographers across the globe are collating their Best Of image sets. You can find mine here.

The world of underwater photography is possibly the total antithesis of my top side world through a lens and Suzy Walker captures the wonders of life on the reef. Please do click on the image above and check out her Best of 2012 at Memoirs of an underwater photographer.

Happy Holidays!

Top 10 Images From 2012

December 20, 2012 — 15 Comments

London architecture dominates this top 10 for 2012. I travel a good deal, enormously enjoying the local landscapes and architecture, however London remains my top photographic location. The reason for this could well be down to familiarity, but London alone can fuel a photographer for a life time of great images.

Personally 2012 has seen me move camera system to Leica, more significantly, a principal move toward street photography and the world of black and white.

10. Tate Modern

Not an outstanding image in itself, its significance lies in the move from pure architecture to images oriented toward people and their environments.

Honourable Mention

A composition should be indifferent to the camera used for the capture. Camera phones are getting so much more capable, so I was pleased to trial Nokia’s 808 Pureview this summer. Honourable mention goes to this shot of Leigh on Sea, in Essex.
