New Years’ is the time of year that we reflect upon the past year and look to better a new one. With life flying by, we tend to forget to stop and enjoy the moments we have. Always moving forward, we like to keep a hold of our memories and do so through the power of photography and capturing every passing moment we see.
Today we are sharing with you our top 5 New Years resolutions for photographers! These will help to set your goals and be able to work towards them, all while having a better year as a photographer.
1. Take More Photos Of Family
Family is undeniably the most important part of anyone’s life. Family is the people that have been there for you since the beginning and have always have your back. So why not have more photos of the people that mean the most to you and always have a memory of the time you spent with them? With the world being a photographers playground for photos, we can try to shrink that world to focus on the ones that matter the most.
2. Stop Comparing Yourself To Other Photographers
Something that we are all guilty of is over comparing our work to other photographers, I know I am. Take the time to learn how to appreciate your work for the amazing photo it is and focus on yourself growing as a photographer!
3. Never Leave The House Without Your Camera
Every day so many amazing things happen, and a lot of the time we really don’t give it a second thought and let the moment pass by us. Having your camera on your every time you leave the house will give you the opportunity to capture that special moment at any time of the day!
4. Don’t Overthink Your Shot
We have all been there, we are face to face with the perfect shot, but get so caught up in the technical aspect of photography that we miss that “perfect” shot. Try relaxing your mind and just take the first photo, live in the moment , then from there move to analyzing it to try and make it better. This way you always have you first image to go back on you are able to see your progress of the image.
5. Take Charge Of Your Shoot
The environment of your shoot is extremely important, it could make or break your shot, but a lot of the time we are afraid to do what we must to clean up your image. Don’t be scared to take charge of your photoshoot by moving that coffee cup that is in the way or ask your model to position themselves the way you want! By taking charge, you will see yourself grow as a photographer!
