>> My Goals for 2014

Happy 2014!
I hope that you had a simply splendid New Year, I know that mine great!
 Every new year I write a list of things that I want to accomplish this year.
Because one of the things on my list is to blog at least once a week I decided that I should share some of theses goals with you!
1. I want to try more star photography, especially the Milky Way.
2. I want to do a ballet session.
I've always been fascinated by ballet, the strength and balance that it takes to stand on one foot. And to make it look good? That is incredible!
The last few years its been a dream of mine to shoot a ballet session, so this year I added it to my list!
3. I want to blog at least once a week.
You already heard about this one....
I know that during fall and winter I will be too busy to keep this up, but until then this is my goal.
4. I want to work on self portraits.
This one is so hard. I know how to pose others, but I have no clue how to pose myself, which is much harder. My only rule is that my self portraits must be more than 'hold camera out and take a picture'
5. I want to buy a laptop.
This is definitely a long-term investment. I have been using my family's desktop, which works, but is not ideal. So for a few different reasons I've decided that this is the year.
6. I want to experiment with photographing waterfalls.
I've been around waterfalls very little. I've seen them and taken picture, but never set out to take pictures of waterfalls.
I decided not to write down all of my 2014 goals, the list would go on for quite a while. But I decided that 6 was a nice number... not to many, and not to few.
What are your goals for 2014?

  1. Wow, a ballet session sounds so cool, I hope you get to do one. :)

  2. I can't wait to see it if you get the chance to do a ballet session!
    One of my biggest goals is to manage my time better to make room for building relationships with God, family, and friends, read more books, get more sleep, and write more. Blogging once a week is one of my goals, too. :)

  3. I really like your blog!!! I think you would like doing a ballet session, it's AMAZING for sure!!! and getting to shoot a ballet session would be so much fun!!!! I'm actually thinking about doing a photo shoot with a friend who is en pointe!!!! and I have to agree with you on getting a laptop, I've needed one for about four years now for my photography!!!! but just haven't had the time or money, and just a fyi photographing waterfalls is amazing!!!!! where do you live?
