2018, if it could be summed up in a single sentence, was by far a year full of learning. I have managed to continue along with the black and white theme for my photography, which has only become more of a challenge for myself as I do what I can to get my name out there and make some sales. Since this is something that I want to do all the time, I have taken to learning as much about marketing my work as I can in the latter half of the year - something I only wish I had done sooner.
I have begun to find myself not only in my day-to-day life but also in my photography, learning much more about it than I thought previously possible. I have sold my first print, officially accomplishing the New Year's Resolution I had set at the beginning of the year. Furthermore, I have been reading much more; the books which I read can be found here, for those interested.
While I have done little in terms of travel past the exploration of New York, I have found myself oddly at peace with this. What I am finding out is just how right Ben Horne is, taking a few week-long trips centered entirely around photography. I am quickly running out of places of interest near where I live and am being forced to drive further to photograph new things. However, I am okay with this, and look forward to the spring when I can camp more comfortably.
I feel as though 2019 will be yet another year of learning but also of successes, if all goes as I hope. We shall see.
Regardless, here are my top 5 of 2018.

Here's to another great year! I can only hope that 2019 treats me as well - if not much better - than 2018 has. And to everyone reading this, I thank you tremendously for all the continued support you have provided me with. I hope to continue to inspire you and hopefully a piece of my artwork will find it's way within your homes.
