With a new year come new goals! I have a few (admittedly basic) goals as I really start getting more serious about iPhone photography. So, no further introduction is needed, I think. Here they are!
1. Improve my long-exposure abilities. Some of the photographs I admire the most are long exposures. With long-exposure, you can create awesome waterfall and ocean shots, and do some cool things with moving light. To date, most of my long-exposure attempts haven’t turned out well. In 2015, I want to practice wherever I can, and push the envelope of what an iPhone can do. I know there will be some limitations (it’s one of the few things I think a “real” camera makes a huge difference), but I want to see for myself exactly where those limitations are. Had I been thinking about LE this year, the photo below might have looked a bit different.
2. Travel to and photograph at least one significant US landmark. Tops of the list are Niagara Falls, the Grand Canyon, and the Redwood Forest. I’m not sure which one I’ll get to this year, but be on the lookout for photos from at least one in 2015!
3. Grow my audience. This one’s a little different. I love traveling and taking pictures, and I’d like to share those pictures with more people. Some ways to do this will include participating in photo contests, continuing to write about what I’ve learned about iPhone photography, and doing Instagram Takeovers of popular accounts (this is when an official tourism account, for example, features photos from a single person for a few days). If you’ve got any other ideas, let me know!
So those are my three goals. Pretty modest, but then again, this isn’t my full-time job 🙂
What are your goals for your photography in 2015?
