I have to admit that I was a little hesitant to gather photos for a 2016 review because I was under the impression that I would not have much to showcase for a Best Photos compilation. Much to my surprise, I organized and photographed many subjects and themes for 2016. The year 2016 was a time for experimentation and exploration. Whenever I had an idea, I followed my instincts and sought out locations to make my visions become a reality. I would be inspired by ideas from other photographers and apply those ideas to my original creations. Each creation was added to my portfolio and it provided me a platform to venture out and publish it online to slowly build an audience. As of today, I still have a small audience but it has great potential for growth and I have faith that it will continue to grow.
Photography has also inspired me to reinforce a business strategy by creating a website and reinventing all of my social media standings. For the first time in my life I created a business card, and managed to prepare for a networking event as a professional photographer. Shortly after, I created a happiness project that revealed that happiness is more than it seems and presented my findings to a woman’s group established at my workplace.
Without further ado, here are my best photos of 2016:
