My goodbye to 2011 featured a sunset I shot a few years ago at a beach in Garrapata State Park, California. For this hello to 2012 I reached even further back in my archive of slides to a sunrise at Haleakala National Park, Hawaii.
Here are my photographic resolutions for 2012. These are not goals to try to achieve and then forget, but rather changes in my day-to-day activities that I hope to make permanent.
Streamline: This may just mean a few simple changes to my workflow, but I spend too much time scanning and processing images these days. I need to leverage more lab scanning services as well as reconsider the process and tools I use to go from film to final image.
Share: I started building a Flickr presence last year and have flirted with other sites. But I need to better leverage the various sites, communities, etc. to get my photos out there and even critiqued as well as work with my DSW to update our portfolio.
Engage: I need to be more active in the photo blogosphere and forums, become part of the online photography community. Especially the film-shooting folks, as we need to stick together and keep our interest alive and well!
Hopefully the resolutions above should help me focus more on the creative and social aspects of photography.
What are your photographic goals or resolutions for 2012?
