My New Year’s Resolutions

Happy New Year everyone and thanks to all for a successful 2010 on my blog

Photo 1/365: The crosses atop St. Spiridon Orthodox Cathedral are silhouetted against the fireworks ignited off the Space Needle as the New Year's celebration comes to an end.

Yep, I’m a little late.

I have a few New Year’s resolutions. Some photo related, others personal, but I’ll stick with the photo this time.

Resolution No. 1:

For my Photo 365 project I’m adding a challenge: Each picture shall have a person in it. No artsy-fartsy blurred photos. I’m sticking to what I do best: People.

Resolution No. 2:

Become more active in teaching others. When I taught college photography, I learned that I love teaching. This blog is my outlet to helping others become better photographers.

Resolution N0. 3:

Post daily the Photo 365 plus other content more regularly in this blog. This may take some getting used to, but it needs to be done. I’ve been a bit slack, but things are going to change

Some shots I will be on the look out for:

1. Cop in a doughnut shop.

Photo 3/365: John giving Steven a haircut.

2. Dog walker walking multiple dogs entangled in the leashes.

3. Some kid picking his nose.

4. Others to be determined as the year progresses.

These are NOT to be staged in any way, shape, or form. Pure photojournalism. Capturing the moment as it happens.

I will be shooting other things as the year progresses. This is to say I will not be concentrating on just

It’s a way to get me to know Seattle for it’s people rather than the tourist-type things.

Seattle is a cool town with lots going on and by being out daily exploring it, I know I’ll find some really cool moments.

So without further ado, I begin the New Year with this post catching up my Photo 365 project.
