I told myself I wouldn’t make a slideshow again this year. Yet, here I am. After many hours struggling to find the right music and then trudging through editing I finally have a slideshow.
2014 was a great year. It’s all great. I get to do this for a living and each year I get to meet new people, shoot new ideas and get paid to do what I love.
Each year I struggle with what music to use. I’ve always leaned towards using one of my favorite songs from the year but the landscape of music is changing so fast that a lot of the music I find wasn’t produced in the current year. Like many others, I get most of my music via a monthly subscription. I hated Spotify when it came out. It felt like getting left alone in a record store and not knowing where to start or what to listen to. In the past couple years I’ve learned a better way to use Spotify and that has led me to finding a host of new music, including the track by Raphael Saadiq. The song is only about six years old, but it’s new to me.
