    Goals

    Advertisements
    Do you have any goals or plans for the near future? Portfolio building, build a website, focus on a certain medium or genre, save up for glass or gear?

    I'd like to get out more and use my 35mm. I love shooting 35mm B&W. I need some motivation and inspiration. I've been so busy with the kids that I'm not as motivated to do more. I'm currently eying the Nikon D700, 135mm f/2 DC and 85mm 1.4. I need a new external flash since my other one broke.

    I've been trying to build a "portfolio" so to speak. I have tons of great still shots (buildings, sunsets, nature, items, ect), but not to many great pics of people.

    Just doesn't seam to be a strong point for me, I can take 300 pics and end up with maybe 10 good ones. So better photos of people is what im currently working towards.

    This was pretty inspiring for me:

    Amazon.com: David Busch's Digital Photography Bucket List: 100 Great Digital Photos You Must Take Before You Die (9781598639933): David D. Busch: Books

    You don't actually have to buy the book, you can look at the "preview" index and see the list

    Correction: I meant the table of contents, sorry!

    I'd love to get back into still life. I miss it. Street, B&W and fine art are my favorite genres.

    I also love using B&W 35mm, but I enjoy my digital so much, and I can turn anything I shoot to B&W when I pull them up to print. So, it's like the best of both worlds!

    Yep. I love the instant reward of using digital, but I also like be surprised by what turns out when I get my prints and image disc. in the mail. I have to send my film to be developed and scanned and then send it out again to get prints made. It's very expensive and takes a bit of time, but oh so cool when I finally get the final product. We don't have a proper space for a dark room right now. Maybe in the future after we PCS.
