2014 Pictures of the Year

Editing this post each year is usually a very humbling experience, but this year it was also bittersweet. In July, I left my newspaper staff photographer job to move to Bloomington with my fiancée. As I looked through hundreds of images from South Bend, I was reminded of all the special people and places I experienced and had the opportunity to photograph over the past couple years. It took me a while to adjust during the transition from a staff position, but I was ultimately able to refresh my personal vision. I now feel as though I’m shooting and seeing in a more careful and deliberate way. I’m looking forward to carrying this momentum into 2015. Below are my 15 favorite moments of 2014. Thanks for looking, and I wish everyone a great New Year.

2014 Year in Instagrams

I’m a fan of Instagram. I try to use it as an exercise in daily visual thinking. I believe a person’s personal vision is not unlike an athlete’s muscle: it needs to be exercised in order to stay in shape. Instagram allows photographers to do this on a daily basis whether it’s by photographing serious stuff or cats. Trying to express myself visually in daily situations is a healthy challenge. This has become even more important to me after I left my newspaper staff job in July. Instagram helped to keep me visually stimulated in the lull between shoots as I adapted to the freelancer life. Below are a few of my favorite Instagrams from 2014. Thanks for looking. Please consider following me on Instagram: @jamesbrosher.
