I am not usually the sort of person who takes New Year Resolutions. Even less so the sort of person who keeps them. I do think being too predictable is boring though, and that one should do things boldly or not bother at all… That is how I ended up making a “Resolution Plan for 2011” at the end of last year.
1- Take time to develop my photography skills. 2- Focus my efforts on my newly found love: photographing people. 3- Test the waters to see if there were any chance of doing this professionally. That is how I ended up at the SWPP for 2 days last January. I spent two 12-hours days attending master classes and exploring all things wedding/portrait photography. I got so excited that I forgot to feel tired. I invested my pocket money in a new professional lens and in some rather good lighting accessories. I took a class on multiple Speedlights (flash) photography. Then I started to recruit volunteers amongst my friends and acquaintances. Some even said yes!!! I spent a little less time than I should tidying up the flat and exercising at the gym. But on the whole, it’s been a long time since I felt this excited about a project. I think this is going to be the easiest resolution to keep EVER!
