This is a traditional end-of-year thread on NRF. Do you have any photography-related goals for the coming year?
I'd like to do some more with time lapses this year. I haven't done anything serious with them yet.
Also, I need to finish a fanciful 360 degree panorama that we'll use as a horizon overlay in my department's planetarium. I have taken all the shots of our surrounding mountains etc., I just need to stitch them all.
CC is welcome. DC is also welcome when I deserve it.
Photograph comet ISON and take my son's UCLA graduation portrait.

Awaiting a DX D400
I just want to get out and get some sunny photos, but we need all of this rain to stop overhere in good old Blighty. I'd also like to try and get some more sunsets and sunrises.
Also, I want to travel to a place in Russia where my mother grew up 80 years ago, had to move at the end of WW II and see what I find there. I already have some imagination how it could look like. I'm a bit scared because I neither speak the language nor can read the Cyrillic words and it'll be not only a photo-challenge to me.
Doing more portraits and dance, but this will happen anyway and is a question of doing more and getting more experience. Even after +20 years of dance photography it sometimes is a miracle how a shot can grow together without purpose and without being able to plan it. Sometimes I focus a couple and in just one moment the autofocus is distracted and went to bystanders, watching the moment with big eyes )
I'm hoping to get back to Alaska in June or July this year. It's in the planning stages maybe I'll get to take a photo of Bulwinkle or Yogi. No cruise this year maybe a motorhome or rent a car and B&B it.
My goals are to use more PSAM settings and take camera off of manual.... i know i know kind of amatureish but i get so scared.... i feel i have got my positioning and all that in check now its time to take the next step.... wish i had this camera when i took the Photography Classes at Ivy tech!!
Its nice to know the basics but the technical talk can get a bit confusing haha
Yeah thats the idea. I'm not one to put it on "auto" and fire away. I'd rather know what i'm doing and why.... Its a challenging hobby and why it interests me
