Podcast 223 : 2009 Achievements and Goals for 2010

As 2009 draws to an end, I'm once again going to look back at the year, and see how I did against the want-to-do list that I set for myself for this year, and talk a little about what I plan to do in 2010. Note that I called it...

    Love the portrait martin, black & white portraiture seems to be very popular these days, especially against a white background. The mother and daughter (I assume) look really happy and natural.

    Thanks Roy!

    They are mother and daughter. This is one of my favourite shots from the October family shoot. I’ll be sharing more soon.

    I also love the portrait Martin! I’m lookng forward to hearing of this four family shoot.

    This podcast has encouraged me to make my first photography goals. This time last year I was still shooting in jpeg! Great episode Martin! Thanks again,

    Hi Martin,

    I just connected with your page on Facebook, and read with interest, your goals for 2009 and 2010. I feel so much better now!

    I too aim really high with my goals, and have felt frustration when they are not met. A couple of years ago, when I sat to think about it, I concluded that I was doing quite well considering everything else I have on the go. This year (for the first time), I made a list of things I want to achieve in 2010. Each item on that list which requires a sub-list of all the smaller tasks that need to be completed to achieve the goal.

    I appreciated your honesty in this article. It gives me encouragement to keep at it …. Thank you.

    Thanks for the kind words about the portrait. I’ll be releasing a Podcast on this shoot at some point soon.

    Congrats on no longer shooting JPEG. That’s an important step forward.


    You’re very welcome! I’m pleased this article/podcast helped. Good luck with your own 2010 list!
