I started getting serious about taking picture about this time last year, so it's been kind of a 0-60 acceleration this year. I can say for sure that technically I've got better, and nearly to the first point at which I want to be: normal film, normal dev, normal contrast, normal paper, etc. Obviously, my theoretical knowledge is light years ahead of what I knew last year, but that's only a helper to understanding.
I just looked at some earlier pictures I've taken and more recent ones, and what I really need working on is the subjects and composition. I've stuck mostly to wide angles in 35mm, so I think I'll go on a bout of 50mm to think more about composition. I like my MF pics more, not just because of the better quality in the neg, but also because of the WLF square compostion.
