My photographic New Year's Resolutions

I have two, but knowing my age and experience, I doubt I'll be able to keep them very long into the new year..LOL

1) Shoot/print more b&w work. I started out professionally 45 years ago in a full-fledged b&w dark room. I shot 99% of the time with b&w film. B&w film teaches so much about the art of photography, and I am convinced I am who I am, photographically, because of what I learned through my b&w experience. I belong to b&w.. I need to get back to my roots.. I need to see and shoot more in b&w, where I feel so comfortable even when exploring and experimenting.

2) Explore my less dramatic side, photographically. My 'life base' is in the theatre. Theatre is essentially dramatic. I tend to 'see' the dramatic as beautiful, and fear I sometimes miss the beauty and subtlety of great possible images -either as opportunities OR as the way I print/present images- by enhancing the dramatic.

Happy New Year to one and all!!
