I like the new year. It is a time when I can grab onto dreams and new challenges. I’m looking forward to joining you in creating. Thank you for supporting me in my journey. I hope I can help you, as well.
I’m planning on making new shifts in photography. (Below is some work I am doing now.) Learning to use the gifts available from digital photography is high on my list. I have all the tools: a great camera, a new iMac and a great printer, but I have had a hard time seeing photography outside the paradigm of film. I believe it is time to take 2016 in hand and make some exciting discoveries!
Kay Adamson gave me a visually beautiful book on photography edited by Tom Ang. Photography: The Definitive Visual History. I love it so much that I’m actually reading it page by page.
The book is unique. Not only does Ang give a history of photography, but he analyzes what made select photographs great. These focus sections will provide me with a tool to review my own photographs and point to ways I can improve my camera work and photo development skills.
Do you have goals for your art this year? Please let us know.
