As I sit here, I’m contemplating going through my library of photos from the past year to do a “Best of 2013” post. I’d like to do one here featuring my family and one over on my photography blog featuring my favorite photos of clients.
Honestly, it’s a little more overwhelming than I realized when I first had this wonderful idea. A minute ago, I opened up Lightroom (my primary editing software), sorted the pictures by year, and narrowed them down just to the ones I took on my DSLR. Want to know what I found? I have 8,765 photos.
Yep. I’m serious. How in the heck did I take so many pictures?!
Granted, that number includes sessions I did, but even if half of them aren’t of my family, that’s still a lot. I think I’m going to have to break this down into memorable events.
I’m actually a little proud of myself, too. I’ve had a DSLR for almost 5 years, but the number of pictures I took with it in a given year used to be somewhere around 25. That’s my best guess anyway. I’ve always taken a lot of pictures, just a majority of them used to be with my phone. I always forgot my big camera and, when I miraculously didn’t leave it at home, I neglected to pull it out of my bag.
So, before I start my tedious project (which will undoubtedly keep me up too late tonight), I thought I’d share some of my favorite photos from this past week.
