Sometimes, we need to return to our roots I think.
When I purchased my first DSLR, a Canon xTi, I decided to take it over to Augusta, Georgia to shoot along the Riverwalk and try it out. The Savannah River was quite calm that morning and there was no boat traffic. The old Southern Railway bridge was reflected in the water. The only thing that would have improved it, a steam train going across.
Years later, this shot is still one of my all-time favorites. I was never able to duplicate that scene on numerous visits to the location while living in South Carolina.
The image was made as a jpeg. I didn't know about RAW at the time and was converted to BW in the Canon software provided. I wish I had a RAW file to process now as I think I could bring out some more details in the shadows, etc...
As we quickly approach the end of 2014, it is time to start thinking about 2015 and our goals as photographers. I'm hoping to do a better job than I did this year of getting out and shooting something every week. I wish I could say "everyday" but with my work schedule "every week" seems like an achievable goal.
I also hope to do a better job of posting here on the blog. I look back and see some pretty "dry" periods. My goal for 2015 will be to do at least one post a week. Hopefully, I'll exceed that.
