Hey, nothing seems special right? No something does, I made New Year resolutions concerning photography and I think I’ve been able to stick with them. Most importantly, changing my camera.

What Resolutions Can I Make for 2017?

The main reason why most people don’t make resolutions is because they find it hard to keep, so here’s what’s going to top the list of my suggestions of New Year resolutions you can make. 

1. Stick to promises you make to yourself and others

2. Get a new camera 

3. Try a new type of photography (wildlife, underwater, aerial, architecture etc) 

4. Embark on a photography project 

5. Teach some photography to teenagers

6. Try another camera maker

7. Use an analogue camera for a shoot 

8. Venture into photography blogging 

9. Give free shoots to the less privilege 

10. Join a photography club (I currently have LearnShutter) 

11. Photograph yourself for 365 days

12. Join an international photography community 

13. Learn Retouching 

14. Try light painting
