Lesson learned. Organize 365 Project throughout year.
I finally caught up on organizing all of my 365 photos and learned the value of importing them into Lightroom in one catalog as I post them instead of waiting until the end of the year. But it's finished, and now I just need to create the album. Because you've heard it before: what good are your photos doing lying idle on your computer? Your computer could crash. Your hard drive could crash. The technology could become obsolete. But printed, barring a disaster like a flood or a fire, you have those photos tangibly forever and ever. I look forward to perusing these photos someday with my family and thinking about how long ago 2015 was and how little my little girl was. Because let's face it, at the beginning of the year she was a baby, and now she is indeed a little girl.
I've chosen a photo from each month in 2015 to show her progression and how much a 365 project helped me to work on my photography skills. I highly recommend doing a 365 project. I wasn't as strict as some. I work a part time swing shift at my other job, so I didn't pick up my camera on the days I worked, and I think I had photography overkill on the days I had off, so I just chose which photos I wanted for each day, whether they were actually from that day or not. Regardless, I picked up my camera several times a week, and it was huge in my development.
It's hard to believe what a difference a year can make. They really do grow up too fast.
And here are some of my overall favorites from 2015:
