Yuba City photographers wishes a happy year to all its friends and clients. May 2012 be as joyous as we look in the pictures above and below. May we photographers capture the miraculous of each day and share it with our friends and families.
My photography aims for this year are to practice one portrait a week. This has always proven easier said than done, but I never regretted making the effort to schedule a portrait session with a friend. If friends are unavailable, I will shoot pets! Either way, the aim is to keep improving my skills in portrait photography.
I also plan to improve my photography gear this year and stay current with the new trends. I will attend the WPPI photographers conference in Las Vegas in February, which brought me much inspiration and instruction last year. It is one of the best ways of keeping current with leading photographers and newly released equipment.
As far as I can tell, travel plans will be restricted to the US (although I am open to surprises). I will probably travel throughout California a few times, and hope to visit the East Coast sometime in spring or summer.
Theatre and photography go hand in hand, as I’ve mentioned before; the one inspires the other. I’ve agreed to participate in three plays this year! That, already, makes it a special year. For this occasion, I launched a Shakespeare Summary site which will present my visual summaries that are intended to introduce people to Shakespeare and remove the imaginary difficulties they have with his language. I will add more plays to it as we perform them.
“All the world’s a stage”, said Shakespeare. May we all enact our parts as gracefully and professionally as we can, striving to become better each day, and through that, improve the stage and cast and audience around us.
