Happy New Year!
Two Thousand Twenty. Doesn’t that sound futuristic? A far-off date that they used for SciFi movies years ago. Except, here it is. We’re on the cusp of starting the second decade of the 21st century.
My family and I just got back from Disneyland and Los Angeles. A week-long trip during the Christmas break where I took far too many photos, as you probably expected. I’ll certainly mix those into the daily blog flow soon.
For 2020, I hope to continue with my photography print experiments. I want to create more books that I have in mind, make more framed prints, and share my Instax mini-portraits. I had a solid start in 2019, but there’s certainly more I can do.
I bought a record number of cameras in 2019, after not buying any in 2018. I made a surprisingly large commitment to Fujifilm, after buying two old cameras and a half a dozen lenses. This year, I don’t expect to buy as many, but I’m mulling the purchase of a significant system. More details to come.
Last year, I was pushing for emotive images with less regard for technical image quality. That was driven partially by the grainy black and whites made with the Olympus PEN-F. However, for 2020, I’m seriously considering making higher quality images. This quality achieved through the combination of technique and gear. I might even slow down slightly and take a methodical approach.
What do you have planned for this year?
May you have a happy, healthy, and creative 2020.
