    We always are talking about gear and what we must have or gonna get. But what kinds of things are you guys looking to the future as far as personal growth weather it be personal, creative or business?

    For me, I want to share more of my photos. I am good at taking picutres and then tossing them from the card to a folder on my comp and thenarchiving. I want to send more files to be printed and share these with my family, friends and just have albums of some type that I can have at home. I have no picutes on my walls and yet there is camera shit all over. I plan to make 1 lens purchase this year. I want to become better at photography instead of better at gear collecting

    I do the same thing. :o Its almost ironic that you said this, because I was just thinking about doing a shoot for one of my friends so they can have some nice family pics to hang. I dont get paid to take photos or anything, I do it just for the fun of it and I would really like to share the pictures.

    But all in all I would like to just become 'better' at anything I do. I'm not going to say my resolution is going to be 'blah blah blah'. I'm pretty happy with the way things are going for me, but I would just like to do better with what I have.

    Start shooting weddings on weekends, get the 70-200 (tomorrow), 24-70 within the next two months. This year is gonna be a lot of investing in gear because I know I need it now.

    Other than that, I wanna shoot more creatively for school projects cause I feel like I didn't give it 100% on some last semester.

    shoot more black and white, especially medium format. damnit no one local sells any b&w 120/220 film. plenty of colour choices.
