Best of 2014 Film Photos [Part 1]

January 5, 2015 at 10:54 pm

Review­ing an entire year of work is quite daunt­ing. You can pre­pare ahead of time and cat­a­log, rate, cri­tique, etc work all year long and still come out the other side baf­fled and unsure why one piece was just SO GOOD. It’s pos­si­ble to try and mark opin­ions through­out the year, but even those can fall flat in review.

Or, you do what I do, and col­lect at the end of the year. With approx­i­mately 500 frames of film shot in 2014, I did a once-over of every­thing and flagged some 60 as poten­tial best of’s. Then I printed 4x6 of each and did a fur­ther culling down to the Top 10.…but this Top 10 list goes to 11!

In no par­tic­u­lar order, let’s walk down mem­ory lane. We’ll five in this post, and five in Part 2. My favorite photo of the year will have its own post thereafter!
