    Photographic wishes for 2010

    Hi Guys- I have came around with this idea rather late but what are your photographic wishes for 2010. Mine wishes are to learn how to print black and white better and use diffrent papers. Both of which I am currently accomplished. I did some fairly sucessful dodging and burning today.

    To get the gumption to get printing. Been on a two month hiatus. I still need to hit the group print exch, the blind print exch and 15 postcards. I really need to get on the stick.
    Thank you.

    To get back to using my 8x10 equipment, a format so rudely interrupted each year by the standard 9-10 months of winter in the Pacific Northwest.

    I have a fully restored Calumet C1 with all the vintage accessories, a Zone VI heavy-duty tripod, two G-Clarons, a Symmar, a Xenar, a fully restored Arkay 4-tank water-jacketed 8x10 processing line, film holders and hangers for all three formats, Lee filter system accessories, etc., etc.

    And only 8-12 weeks a year of decent weather...

    But it *is* a gorgeous 8-12 weeks - when it doesn't rain then as well.

    I can relate. But it is a great time for printing.

    To travel the world <sigh, I wish> — or at least a very scenic part of it e.g. Italy/Tuscany in September, New Zealand in November, with cameras and oodles of film! No digital! I agree with keithwms re no treatment for this 'addiction'; my take is that once bitten by the photography bug, there is no escaping; it will keep calling forever and ever in your ears, for there is no escaping the little voices that urge you on.

    I wish for good light, good health and the continued production of 6.5x8.5" film.

    I wish to be billable in my IT consulting business for the remainder of the year so that I can fund my travel photography habit, as well as fund the cost of development expendibles like chemicals, and other supplies. This year I will shot 90% film, 10% digital; more film then any other year in the last 10. I got the camera-workflow/set up down cold...I want to make great improvements in my composition skills; take this to the next level....I have too many perfectly exposed & focused craap pictures...I want to shoot less pictures, but get more keepers. This year I'd like to find the time to digitized thousands of old Kodachrome slides, if I can. They're fading fast!
    Coming back home to my film roots. Canon EOS-3 SLR, Canon EOS 1V SLR, 580ex flash, and 5D DSLR shooter. Prime lens only shooter.
