Hello everyone - a very happy new year to you all!
This week’s theme is Photographic resolutions
The new year is a time when we often make resolutions about what we’ll do differently in our lives, be it giving up bad habits, getting fitter or something else entirely. There’s no reason why we can’t do this with our photographic lives too so I thought we could use this week’s theme to share our plans for the coming year.
It could be that you plan to explore a new genre of photography or develop your skills in a particular area. Or perhaps you’re starting a new personal project - the possibilities are endless. Here are some of my plans for 2020….
Some of you will be aware of the prime lens project I started in November. I’m using a different prime lens each month, shooting with it exclusively for at least one day a week. It’s been an interesting experience so far, helping me to get to know the strengths of each focal length. If you would like to learn more about this project, and perhaps take part yourself, you can read about it on my blog here. This is one of the photos I took in December, using the 42.5mm lens I’d chosen for the month.
Another plan I have for 2020 is to actively study photography more. I attended an interesting workshop in London on election day last month and found it really helpful in terms of opening my eyes to new possibilities and trying different skills. I’m also working my way through an online course with David Duchemin and I want to try and hone my skills more this year.
Finally, I definitely plan to step up the progress of my City Churches project. I started this in 2014, to photograph all 56 churches in the square mile of the City of London. Last year it was rather neglected, but I’m hoping 2020 will be the year I finish off the last dozen churches!
So there are some of my photographic resolutions for 2020 - now it’s over to you to share what your plans are!
