Random thought's about photography, and equipment related to it.

Happy New Year! What's your goals in 2015?

  Hello All, hope you had a safe New Years celebration.  And here's to hoping that 2015 is a better year.  I myself don't believe in resolutions, but I do believe in goal setting, both in my personal and business life.   When doing this with something like photography, its taking that passion you have for it and expanding your knowledge base to hopefully result is better stories about your images, which comes not only from a strong camera basics background, but an understanding of what your photographing.

  For this year, I've already started with reservations to the EAA event in Oshkosh, WI.  To practice more on aviation photography, but also to get closer to these great planes.  As anyone who know's me is aware, I'm very into history, and I do have a great appreciation for the World War 2 warbirds, and there history.  Also looking to do more Landscape photography such as I did this year at Pictured Rock National Lakeshore.

  In relation to Landscape photography, I've also signed up for Matt Kloskowski.  Matt is training about OnOne Software.   Looks very intertesting, and as I've become more dependent on this suite of software for my retouching needs, a worth while investment.

  On a personal side, something I've already started in 2014, was better nutrition, I've been juicing a couple of my meals every day.  Which I feeling better with, and is causing a weight loss on the slow and steady side which is what doctors prefer.  My goal overall is to lose 20-25 pounds, which I believe is very doable.  

  So friends, what are your goals for 2015?  Here's to a productive and enjoyable year!
