My Favourite Photos of 2016


Earl Grey Editing's favourite photos of 2016

Photography has become an interest of mine over the last few years. I don’t have a fancy camera, but find my phone generally does the trick (sometimes outfitted with a macro lens). Since the inception of Earl Grey Editing’s blog, I’ve used my own photography for posts. At the beginning of the year, I took it to a new level by shooting photos for my reviews instead of simply incorporating an image of the cover. It’s a bit more labour-intensive, but I’ve been pleased with the results.

As something fun, I thought I’d share my favourite 20 photos I’ve taken this year: 10 from the blog (or related social media accounts), and 10 from my personal life. It was surprisingly difficult to whittle down the list!

Often what I liked most about these photos wasn’t the composition but the matching colours.

Left to my own devices, I gravitate towards photos of the natural world… though I’ve not yet mastered the art of landscapes. Without the need to clearly display book covers, I can afford to be a bit more creative with lighting and composition.

It has been a tough year for many, making it easy to forget the beauty that has been present. These photos serve as my reminder. May 2017 bring even more moments like these.

    1. Thank you! Most of the teacups have come to me from my grandma. It’s nice to be able to put them to good use rather than let them gather dust.
