Image: My Top Ten Photos of 2010

This has not been a year in which I spent a great deal of time practicing the “art” of photography. For the most part when I pick up the camera these days its to capture snapshots and not to try and carefully craft an image. That isn’t to say that I think I haven’t managed to capture a few images along the way that might be worthy of a second look… so when I saw Tom Varden’s My Top Ten Photos of 2010 post (who got the idea from Jim M. Goldstein’s blog) I was motivated to go through my image to see if I could pick 10 I liked enough to put label as my top ten for 2010.

So here it goes, my top ten photos of 2010, a mixture of fun portraits, travel photos (from my new favorite city Bangkok), and one lone macro shot:

This is one of my daughter’s creepier dolls (and so many of them are strangely creepy for some reason) but I thought I might be able to do something with a combination of frontal lighting from the ring flash and rear lighting of a golden orange wall that served as the back drop for the shot to make it “glamorous”.

I am having a ton of fun looking around the house for things to photograph with the ring flash.
