Episode 49 – New Year’s Resolutions
In this episode, the guys talk about their photographic New Year’s Resolutions goals for 2013.
Tom starts with his resolution to improve his off-camera lighting skills. He received this off-camera lighting set-up for Christmas and has already been testing it on the world famous Yossarian the Cat. Ryan’s first resolution is to improve his video skills. Cory wants to slow down (he’s nearing Ryan’s age, after all) and be more deliberate with his photography. He referenced this article on DPS about slowing down and taking in your environment before shooting.
For the second go-round, Tom indicates that he wants to become an expert of clown-barf processing (or just learn other styles of post-processing, in general). Similarly, Ryan wants to improve his Photoshop CS6 skills. Cory wants to spend less money on gear. Immediately after which he started drooling over the Sigma 35mm f/1.4. Ha…good luck on buying less!
Tom’s next resolution is for 50% of his “good” photos to come from non-Disney destinations. The “hippy trip” he and Ryan are taking to Yosemite involves shooting the Horsetail Falls “firefall.” Ryan wants to get back into Flickr now that the new app is out and since he has a 3-month trial of Flickr Pro.
The podcast also made some New Year’s Resolutions, mostly involving excellence, etc.
