My Favorite Photos of 2012

Every year, I think it’s a good exercise for every photographer to go back through the shots they’ve taken and see what kind of a photographic year it’s been for them.  For instance, I felt 2011 to be one of the biggest years of growth in my photography since I started.  2012 was a little bit of a letdown for me personally, though I certainly got some good shots.  Unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to shoot as much as I’d have liked this year, especially from June onward.  Such is life…will just have to make more of an effort next year.  Anyway, I’ve gone through my images, and selected a bunch of my favorites from the year.  These are just personal favorites of mine.  They may or may not be my best of the year, but they’re my personal favorites.

    Amazing photos Jordan – congrats on what was obviously a very good year, photographically seen. And like I said already: that last one is a winner. We have friends over there in Columbus, but I’ve never seen it.

    Love your city shots of Columbus best…the Pittsburgh shot is also nice…heck, they’re all nice…
