As the sun sets on 2009, what will you do to improve in 2010?
Research shows that real mastery of any skill requires 10,000 hours of practice. I figure I spent about 1500 hours doing photography between ages 15-47, and have spent about 1500 hours on it in the last 28 months. It’ll take me another ten years do get my photography Ph.D., and that’s only if I continue to push myself.
Did your photography improve from 2008 to 2009? Why or why not? What are you going to do to improve in 2010?
This year I did a lot of studying of famous photographers to learn composition, and I think I got a lot better at doing intense photography road trips. I had fun with Ilford 3200 film, and learned how to do portraits. I don’t think the shots I posted to Flickr were any better in 2009 than 2008; but I took a lot more photos this year (most of which never get posted to Flickr) that I personally like.
Time to plan for 2010…

We are shut up in schools and college recitation rooms for ten or fifteen years, and come out at last with a belly-full of words and do not know a thing. The things taught in schools and colleges are not an education, but the means of education.
The whole theory of modern education is radically unsound. Fortunately in England, at any rate, education produces no effect whatsoever. If it did, it would prove a serious danger to the upper classes, and probably lead to acts of violence.
Soap and education are not as sudden as a massacre, but they are more deadly in the long run. Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
