As I start year six, I'm thinking about how I want to approach photography this year. First, I want to attempt to revert to the more traditional intent of the challenge of taking and posting one photo per day, rather than how I've been doing it. I would also like to keep a physical copy (4"x6") of each photo I post and put them in a journal, making notes or not, as the spirit moves me. For this, I'll have to send each photo to a folder in my account at Walgreen's and have them printed when I'm able, but no less than two or three times per month. (Keeping in mind, I have 4 albums on 365, but will not be able to keep up the pace of four photos per day. That's ok.) Using my old photography journal, I have some things I'd like to work on this year - learning to use my new Lensbaby Velvet 56, learning more about the functions on my camera that I rarely touch, experimenting with some new techniques and revisiting some "old" ones, delving more deeply into black and white photography and studying the "greats", etc. Most importantly, and above all else, it needs to stay FUN. If it's not fun, I won't have any motivation to invest the time/money in keeping up with it. And there is so much more to learn! (1/1/2018)
