Photography Ambitions for 2013

My style of photography has changed over the last few years. I used to think my skills lay in architecture or landscapes, but actually it seems that I have an affinity for portrayal of people. This isn't so surprising given the role I tend to fill for my close friends; and so my photography tends to be people, events and a smattering of art/nude.

I aim to continue these themes, and develop them further, in 2013.

I have a fairly long list of themes and shoot ideas, and these exist to serve as inspiration. The more abstract goals are also listed here.

Formats:

  1. use more large format
  2. use more medium format
  3. use more colour film
  4. cross-process EtoC and CtoE
  5. use digital with the same care and frugality of shutter release as film
  6. shoot video

Skills:

  1. improve at and do much more art nude
  2. start with large format, studying the book I received for Christmas
  3. male form
  4. more studio and lighting practice

Themes:

  1. build on "poise"
  2. hands, feet
  3. rope-work and bondage
  4. metallic nudes
