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…

Whom do I call educated? First, those who manage well the circumstances they encounter day by day. Next, those who are decent and honorable in their intercourse with all men, bearing easily and good naturedly what is offensive in others and being as agreeable and reasonable to their associates as is humanly possible to be... those who hold their pleasures always under control and are not ultimately overcome by their misfortunes... those who are not spoiled by their successes, who do not desert their true selves but hold their ground steadfastly as wise and sober -- minded men.
