Best Photos of 2018: Newly Processed From Years Past by Todd Henson

I recently shared my favorite photographs created in 2018. In this post I share my favorite photographs processed in 2018 that came out of the camera in years past.

I often go out shooting, return home, import my photos into the computer, back them up, then move on to something else, leaving the photos on the computer half-forgotten. This year I made an effort to begin poring over and processing some of these older photographs. I didn’t want to include them in my Best of 2018 collection, but at the same time I did work on them this year so I didn’t want to completely leave them out. The solution? Creating a collection specifically for them.

Below are my favorite photos processed in 2018 but created in years past, listed in chronological order:

Happy New Year!


Best Photos of 2018: My Favorites of the Year by Todd Henson

It’s that time of year again. Time to go back through everything you’ve created this year looking for the best, or at least the favorites. This isn’t an easy task, but it helps teach us to be ruthless with our work. I’m far from an expert in this, so I continue to practice each year.

This process was inspired by Jim Goldstein, who each year gathers together best of collections from many different photographers. Thanks to Jim for the inspiration and for continuing to put together these lists each year. Your work is appreciated.

Below are my favorite photos created during 2018, listed in chronological order:


If you’d like to see more, I also have a collection of my favorite photos created in previous years but first, or newly, processed in 2018. And if you enjoy reading books and watching movies I’ve put together a list of the books and movies I most enjoyed in 2018.

Merry Christmas! And here’s to a great 2019! I wish you all the best.


Best Photos of 2017: My Favorites of the Year by Todd Henson

The year is coming to a close and it’s now time to look back, to gather together everything I’ve created this year and pick out those I think are my best photos of the year, or at least some of my favorites. This process was inspired by Jim Goldstein, who each year gathers together best of collections from many different photographers.

It’s a great time to go back over what you’ve done, see what worked, what didn’t, and maybe think ahead to things you might try next year. So after you’ve finished viewing my collection I encourage you to look at your own collection if you haven’t already, and pick out your best 5 or 10 photos of the year. Then go check out some of the fantastic photographs created by other photographers throughout the years.
