Ethiopia, Taiwan, Japan, and lots of time underwater - 2015 was a fun year! It was also a year of learning as I moved to a DSLR for underwater and a Leica M for travel. Interestingly, the Leica system really changed my approach to photography. I found that the manual focus and exposure mechanisms of the "M" really forced me to slow down and be more thoughtful about the layers (background, mid ground, and foreground) of an image. Exactly what I needed this year.
