Welcome to Under Pressure Photography’s Top 10 Photos of 2017! First, I want to thank everyone that has been a fan and followed my photography over the years! This has definitely been a light year for photography and sharing and I appreciate you sticking with me. I haven’t gotten out and shot as much as in the past, and when CrtrGrl and I did go on vacation, we both got really sick. 🙁
2017 was the start of a new personal journey for CrtrGrl and I. We talked a lot about what we want our lives to look like in the future and what is really important to us. As part of this, we’re working on living a cruelty-free lifestyle, including going vegan earlier last year. In addition to the health benefits, it reduces suffering and is one of the biggest life changes that reduces our contribution to Climate Change. I’ve also been reading about and inspired by Minimalism. While I probably won’t get rid of everything I own, it does strike a chord as a part of a more sustainable future. We’re really looking forward to forging a new path in 2018 and also to new adventures!
This year, we focused on filming videos for the CrtrGrl YouTube channel. It’s been a lot of fun and a big learning experience. I also migrated our two websites (crtrgrl.com and adventurephotography.forest2sea.com) from GoDaddy’s ‘Managed WordPress’ to Amazon Web Services (AWS). Our web sites are now running on an EC2 instance running WordPress Multisite. This allows me full control over performance, logging and we can build new websites without arbitrary limits.
