A New Year Brings New Adventures!

Welcome to the new year! Yes, I've been a bad blogger. I've taken thousand of pictures but I haven't blogged in quite some time. I promise to be better this year!

That said, I've acquired some new gear (thanks Santa) and it's forced me to go back to the basics. I've been reading my Magic Lantern Guide and it's had me thinking about ISO, white balance, aperture, etc. Any good coach will tell you that you have to master the basics to become one of the greats. I'm afraid that this past year I've strayed from the fundamentals and I've ended up pretty frustrated on a regular basis. I've stood there whining to my wife cursing the gods and asking why my pictures were so crappy when I was doing what I've always done. Recently, I've realized that by doing what I've always done my photographic growth has been stunted. That's why this year I will be studying my fundamental photography lessons and pushing myself to stray from my comfortable path and venture into the great unknown or at least the great untried!

Until we meet again!
