Happy new year to all reading this pokey little blog about photography and film. Well, last year was a great year to explore South Australia for the first time and resulted in a couple of good images. It also saw me starting to explore the world of underwater photography with my Nikonos V and 15mm as well as a move back to digital with the Nikon Df. The late edition of the Fuji GW690III further rounded off the year quite nicely. So what are my photographic expectations for 2015? As always, it is the pursuit of powerful images that drives me. I’d like to think that I can make 12 good images this year and maybe 4 of those which are really good. I have a photo trip in March to Lake Eyre (weather permitting) and the Flinders Ranges for some unfinished business. The Great Ocean Road is also on the list as a must see this year. More people pictures as well as getting wet underwater can be expected. Above all I need to enjoy the process which often means slowing down and shooting larger and larger formats. Getting out in bad weather is also a must! One day I might have enough images to make a book… PS: Star trails, nearly forgot to mention I have about 6 different star trail shots planned. I’m yet to get a really good one on film so that’s one of my goals this year.
