Every year, Jim Goldstein, awesome landscape photographer extraordinaire and blogger challenges his readers to post their best ten shots of the year on his blog. I’ve received thousands of hits to my blog just from posting there, so if you want exposure, that’s one way to do it. I highly recommend posting your best shots of 2010. After a long year of imaging, it is good practice to edit down to ten shots only. Not only does it force you to put your priorities in order, it also serves to show you how you’ve improved or even lost your way. You can also get a sense of what a photo editor feels like, sacrificing good images every day. I have a ton more images that I wanted to make the list, but ten is 10. I feel like my images have come a long way in a year and it looks like 2011 is shaping up to be the best yet. Here’s last year’s Top Ten for comparison. Wedding dates are starting book up a documentary project about the Space Shuttle will get underway and even a big commercial gig is looming on the horizon. Will this be the year we get to quit our jobs and become full-time pros? Only time will tell.
In the meantime, I’d like to thank all the visitors to the website, blog, Facebook, MySpace, etc. Traffic is ever climbing and I can’t thank all of you enough for your time, comments, energy and for looking at my photos. I couldn’t do this without you guys. Hopefully, we’ll see you in 2011.
So above and below are my ten best of 2010 in no particular order (click thumbnail for larger image):
So there you have it. Like I said, there were a ton of hard decisions to make. I took a bunch of great baby shots and wedding shots that I love to death, but I couldn’t pick so they didn’t make it. Hopefully, I won’t have moms and newlyweds after me for not picking their photos. To all of my couples and parents, sorry. Perhaps we’ll do a portrait Top Ten. Thanks again everyone for viewing and have an awesome holiday.
