Ok. So firstly (and probably repeatedly during this update) I'd like to say a giant "Thank You" to all of you who have taken the time to view, and comment on these entries for the last year. And an even larger thank you to Urban and the rest of the 52rolls.net crew for inviting me to take part in this project. I was so happy to be a part of this community. I also can't forget to thank everyone who donated their time to step in front of my camera. I couldn't have done it without you.
A large part of the "success" of this last year is due to everyone who watched and took time out of their day to leave me feedback, and without 52rolls.net I have a feeling WAY fewer people would have laid eyes on my work.
I started this project with the intentions of forcing myself to shoot more photos in 2015. I believe I talked about it at length in one of the first entries, but 2014 was pretty shitty for me in terms of my creative levels. Because of this challenge, and the subsequent relationships I have made this year, I completed my goal of "shoot more" in spades. Would I do it again? HELL YES. Will I be doing it again next year? Who knows? But shooting every week (or mostly every week) has allowed me to see things differently and reminded me why I got into this field in the first place.
What does the future hold? Only time will tell. My only request is that if you liked the work you have seen over the past year, take the time to follow me on Social Media and keep on liking, commenting, and critiquing.
And with that I have rambled on enough, below are a few of my favorite photos from this last year of film.
Thanks once again, and I hope to hear from you all soon.
