About the Book
A Year Behind the Lens 2012 was inspired by the desire to improve my images in collaboration with other photographers. Each of the photographers were looking for new ways to stretch their creativity. We decided to do a project for 52 weeks in 2010. The project continued in 2011 and again in 2012.
The project framework involved capturing a new image each week. The subject could be our own choice. Each weekly image was shared with the other photographers. After the first year in 2010, I ended up with many outstanding images. I learned that producing a new image each week was very challenging. I began to develop a new eye for creativity. I gave myself permission to try new things and decided to continue on this course for another year.
The images contained herein are the results of the 2012 journey.
