Thank you for joining me on my 365 project … what a year, a year that has challenge me, provided me a host of new opportunities and a year when my photography blog has taken on a life on its own… I have had a blast … but this is my last daily blog for a while….
A 365 is a wonderful idea and a great way to explore photography but I am ending the year with a new goal… a new photography idea that I would like to follow it and each one of these projects will take time to develop. in the next year I would like to (in no particular order)
- Take more portraits
- Improve my lighting skills and my awareness of lights
- Photograph puffins
- Develop my photography business
- Take better photos
- Print more big photos….
As the year has drawn to a close, I have felt rushed to take a photo, rushed to complete the days challenge and I want to step back and develop my skills in more specific areas … so instead of a 365 … 2016’s blog will continue with random moments and stories that I choose to share…
I saw this online – published by mindset – and decided that really does sum up my 365 challenge…
Throughout the last year I have:
- Pushed myself outside my comfort zone
- I have challenged myself, and loved the challenges
- Learned more than I could have anticipated – fears, regret, excitement, strengths & weaknesses not just in photography…
- Sold my photos, got brave and printed big…
- Shared my enthusiasm with others…
To end the year I want to share these interior shots – it is is a local New Forest self catering – and the large canvas on the wall were photographed this year by me… your welcome to book a week to stay and take a closer look. The guests this Christmas loved them!
I also wanted to share a copy of a recent published image. A photograph I took earlier in the year of Lymington Coastguard at work, was recently published in a calendar that was created by The Conservation Volunteers -The Solent Way Project. I received it in the post today!
I want to add the year with advice to continue on with… step out of your comfort zone and continue to embrace new challenges…. you never know what is next….
