How are You Going with Your Photographic Goals for 2010?

201007121304.jpgAt the start of 2010 we challenged our readers to think about what their photographic goals would be for 2010 (the article contained 30 suggested goals).

It’s now halfway through the year and so when Christen contacted us over the weekend to remind us of that post we thought it might be a good time to get everyone thinking about their photographic goals again – in two main ways:

  1. are you moving toward the photographic goals that you set at the start of the year?
  2. what goals do you have for the 2nd half of the year?

If you’re anything like me – goals tend to be something you are pretty general about. ‘I want to improve my photography’ – is a goal that I know many people make. But without getting a little more specific it can be a goal that is never really met.

So what are you going to do in the 2nd half of 2010 that will take you further forward in your photography? What concrete steps will you need to put in place to achieve those goals?

Share how you’re going and what you’re planning to do in the next 6 months in comments below and hopefully we can all keep each other a little more accountable.

PS: My personal goals for the 2nd half of the year:

Early next year I’m taking a trip to visit a not for profit organisations work in Tanzania. As a result I want to

  • Improve my portrait/travel photography by sitting with a travel photographer friend and picking his brain, viewing some of his work and getting some tips.
  • I want to buy a new camera before the trip – I’ve been looking to upgrade my Canon EOS 5D to a Mk II for a while but have been hoping they’d come out with a Mk III. Either way – I want a DSLR with video so I don’t have to take two devices. I’m also eyeing off the 85mm prime lens (as there will be a fair bit of low light shooting)…. mmmmm!
  • I want to take my camera out with me more – I tend to use my camera mainly for family gatherings and with my kids and need to get back into the practice of having it with me everywhere (something I used to do but with a busy work and family life I’ve gotten out of the practice).

What are your goals for the rest of the year and how are you going with previously set ones?
