2022 was the first year in a few where I felt like I took a lot of pictures. After a few years of not taking hardly any it felt good to get back to it.
The highlights of this year are:
Senior portraits that I took of my oldest.
Homecoming pictures of my daughter and her friends (from two separate homecomings no less) as well as my son and his date.
One of the three finalists for American Idol’s 2022 season was Leah Marlene, who happens to be from my town. As part of the finale she returned home to do a parade and hometown concert. I was able to get close enough to get some decent pictures of that.
I usually take a lot of pictures in a given year, and 2018 was no different. Out of the thousands of pictures I took, these are my favorites. Most are taken with my main camera, a Canon 6D, but some are moments captured with my phone.
I made a second attempt at shooting fireworks this year. I forgot my remote shutter release, and so had to trigger the camera from my iPhone. That works OK, but there’s enough lag that it’s not ideal. They still turned out pretty well.
