Photography Goals 2015
Lifestyle

Each year I write down a few photography goals for the year.

Each year I fail to complete some of these goals but at least I’m trying, right?

I’m sure this year won’t be any different but it is worth writing them down and putting it out there. Hopefully you guys can help encourage me and I can encourage you to complete our goals this year.

    Complete a Project 365

    Yes, I realize I say this every year and for the past 3 years I have failed but here is why I’m starting a photography project I’m sure I won’t finish. If you would like to link up with others doing a Project 365 you can link up here. If you are posting on Instagram feel free to use the hashtag #ciuan365 to find others joining in the project.

    02
    Edit daily

    One of my biggest struggles is the thousands and thousands of unedited images I have sitting on a thumb drive. No one is enjoying them, they are just hanging out. It’s sad. This year, I will edit daily. I will edit daily. I will edit daily.

  • No.
    03
    Edit 2014

    I have 7K photos from 2014 and I have only culled and edited through April. I need to edit those and get a photo book made.

  • No.
    04
    Take a monthly photo of all 3 kids.

    This was one I enjoyed doing last year as the photos of all 3 kiddos together are some of my favorites. They don’t have to be frame worthy images, just an image with all three girls in it.

  • No.
    05
    Learn more about video

    I recently got a D750 which has video on it and I LOVE it. It is so fun to capture our everyday lives through videos as well as still photography. I would love to read more about video and learn how to improve those.

    Day in the life of

    Each year I like to do a day in the life of around my birthday so I remember what a typical day looks like. I was out of town this year and never got around to it so that was a bummer. I won’t miss this year.

What are your photography goals for this year?

    I just bought my D750 for my birthday gift (says my husband) and it should be here tomorrow! My first full frame and I am also coming from Canon crop frame so I am excited the change in my images!

      What?!?! The 750 is a full frame??? When did I miss that!

      • January 8, 2015 at 10:27 AM

        Yes it is full frame and like other nikons you can change it to crop if you wanted to but I dont think I will EVER do that! I love FX so much!

    I am journeying through my 2nd round of the 365 challenge. I lasted 2 months last year… My goal is to complete it. I have discovered BBF, and and learning to use it. I’m trying it for a month as suggested. Mynquestionsis this… Is the 365 challenge, just to take pictures? I am just taking boring picture of my boys, in that, playing with my ‘k’ and ISO and app and ss. All my pictures when it dark, come out red. I really want any to master this, but can’t seem to get the red out!!!! Suggestions?

    To complete a 365 project. Winter is rough for me; I do not like the cold weather & I’m not a fan of the flat light that comes with it. Booo. I hibernate & my photography suffers.
    Improve my editing skills.
    Cull/edit/organize the bazillion photos I have just chillin’ on my hard drive.

  • January 7, 2015 at 11:49 AM

    I have a wonderful camera that shoots amazing video. I want to do a lot more videos this year.

    I just got my first DSLR for my birthday in December. Last year I did a 365 project with my iPhone and was pleased, I did over 300 pictures/days. Didn’t do all 365, but things were a bit crazy for a little while.
    My goals:
    1. learn to use my DSLR, using what I learned when shooting with my 35mm Film camera before we had kids ( the oldest is 25)
    2. organize my current pictures – I have already started this by creating files and folders as described by year, month and then event is needed. I have December done. :-)
    3. organize pictures from camera onto computer monthly. The 10th is the day I have selected to do that for each prior month (my birthday is the 10th)
    4. organize all pictures from 2014 – from iPhone & computer into folders that were created.
    5. Create a book with my 2014 365 Instagram photos.
    6. Complete a 52 Project. I’m up to date so far. :-)
    7. Complete the Unexpected Everyday Book – as a monthly “challenge” I bought the book and have been reading it, that’s a start, right?

    Thank you for all of your help, support and guidance. It really helps to know that you are as normal as the rest of us.

  • January 7, 2015 at 11:53 AM

    To use my camera everyday … Improve my editing skills and get better with photoshop!

  • January 7, 2015 at 12:00 PM

    1) I started my first Photo 365 this year, so far so good! But I haven’t had to work yet, so I believe those days will be more challenging. I do find it harder to find pictures of interesting things in the winter.
    2) My husband got me Paint Shop Pro X7 for Christmas and I need to learn to use it. I’ve never been much of an editor, more of just a cropper! I guess that’s the scrapbooker in me…lol.
    3) Learning (slowly…) how to take the camera off auto and learn some of the manual modes. (Auto is just easy!)
    4) I took Courtney’s advice and started a photography blog. I’m not much of a blogger, but I do like a place to put my picutures!

  • January 7, 2015 at 12:00 PM

    365 – I started but due to crumby weather I have already missed a day! Just shoot as much as possible.

    I have a D750 and know nothing about how to take video on it so I need to learn the technique.

    Stuck in Landscape – Explore people photography (model opportunity in February), Roller Derby shoots already started, street shoots – need more courage and have begun that as well.

    Less editing, I take great photos and likely don’t need to spend so much time.

  • barbara brock

    Love to see everyone’s goals. I shot approximately 15,000 photos in 2014 and actually saved and edited 10,000. Just one to say that when I come home from shooting, I put the memory card in the computer and edit immediately….that day. I AM fast. I use iPhoto and take about 30 seconds maximum per photo. Then I enter pics EVERYDAY on ViewBug, Pixoto and 500px. Entering contests is a huge motivation for me!

    I did the 365 challenge two years ago, and had a blast with it, but this year I’m doing the 52 week challenge. I am also working on finishing the last section of my photography course and getting my business up and running. i have several photography help books and I want to finish at least 2 of them this year and actually put the tips into practice! :)

  • Ian
    January 7, 2015 at 12:09 PM

    1. A 365 project (my first)
    2. A 52 self portrait project (one per week)
    3. Get my photos in order (I have 7 years worth to pull together), a bit every day is working !
    4. Get our and explore more (we have recently moved to a new country but been renovating our house, so need to see more of where we now live).
    5. Have fun with my photography and experiment.
    So looking forward to 2015 ……

  • January 7, 2015 at 12:13 PM

    My goal is to spend an hour a day focusing on photography. Reading new articles, shooting, editing, building my new website, etc.

  • January 7, 2015 at 12:47 PM

    1. Project 365 (I’ve posted 6 days!) Historically my best attempt was 155 days, but then I started a photography class, and the 365 went by the wayside. I learned a lot from my photography class, but I believe I lost some valuable learning experiences and momentum by not continuing the 365. I learned so much from those 155 days. I have had a photog slump and am hoping the current Project 365 helps bring me out of it.

    2. Edit every day. I have been going through courses on lynda, but it comes in spurts. The daily edit is a really good idea. Thank you for bringing it to my consciousness.

    I think if I can do the above two (shoot every day, edit every day) the rest will come.

  • January 7, 2015 at 12:55 PM

    Dear Courtney! I love und use a lot of your tips, and I think you have a lot of goals! One of my goals a few years ago was to set fewer goals :-).
    This year I will
    1. do and finish a project365. So far it is going very well, one week in ;-)
    2. become very quick in different surroundings using my camera, manual white balance and all
    3. get people to pay me for taking pictures! I am starting my photography business in April, and have still a lot of preparation concerning marketing etc. Wish me luck!
    Best, Bernadette

    • Bernadette
      January 7, 2015 at 2:04 PM

      I forgot one goal, it is to take FEWER pictures. I am serious! I want to take fewer pictures and edit more before I actually take them, and not just shoot and think, “I can figure this out later..”

  • January 7, 2015 at 12:56 PM

    I want to complete Project 52…I’ve started two separate ones. Really hoping to stick to it through the year. Also, would love to do Project 365. Stay on top of my editing and printing out is also a big one!

  • January 7, 2015 at 12:58 PM

    I just started a 365 on my own blog. Thanks for the inspiration.

  • Rob G
    January 7, 2015 at 1:18 PM

    1- become comfortable in manual mode. (I play around with it but chicken out for fear of missing a great photo opportunity!)
    2-complete a 365. It’s just for me, I am not publishing it. Not there yet..
    3- learn a Photoshop or ditch it and learn Lightroom. Thoughts?

    When our family of 5 go on holidays it’s the weirdest thing – we’re all standing right beside each other taking photos of the exact same thing (my actor-at-heart takes video) but every image turns out differently. My daughter is a graphic artist so she focuses on the rule of thirds and has a natural ability to make every photo look like a work of art. My husband is retired and has taken at-home photography courses, and being the analytical man that he is, he focuses on light in his pics which turn out like postcards. My youngest son is a budding comedian and his photos always tell a story about something that happened – or he that makes happen like the time he put a comb in his brother’s hair backwards and took a pic of the poor guy fast asleep on the plane. My photos? They are snapshots – usually “mom snapshots” of the family lined up in front of a building, statue or landscape. LOL My goal for this year is to learn how to use my camera to take photos that look fantastic (like my husband’s), evoke emotion (like my daughter’s) and tell a story (like my son’s). Now is that too much to ask?! Oh yeah. I just want to know how to do it without all the photography lingo & mumbo-jumbo about why you do it a certain way bogging the whole thing down. That’s not too much to ask is it? LOL

  • Robin Martin
    January 7, 2015 at 1:38 PM

    My goals for photography are:
    1. do another year of 365 – I have done this since 2009, some years better than others.
    2. Take a photo trip/workshop in New Zealand – I have booked this with Trey Ratcliff and currently planning my side trips.
    3.To turn some of my photos into canvas prints for display
    4. Learn Lightroom better
    5. Find my style of photography
    6. Organize and publish some past photos into a book

  • January 7, 2015 at 1:40 PM

    I am doing a 365, thanks to your encouragement and advice! So far, I’m loving it! Although it’s only day 7, I’m finding a lot of motivation and I already think I’ve taken my favorite photo ever! This year my goal with the 365 project is to focus on taking better photos, finding my vision and digging into my creativity. I think I may have to start blogging about it too – just for fun!

  • January 7, 2015 at 1:42 PM

    I am retiring from full time work in April, so may meet some of these goals:
    1. Project 365 with my new Nikon D7100 – I didn’t commit until Jan 4th. While working it is a challenge. Probably will only post once a week until April.
    2. Take classes to learn more technique.
    3. Post to my blog at least weekly. This went waay downhill last year.
    4. Enter at least one contest.

    Courtney, thanks for all of your inspiration & encouragement!!

  • Hannah

    1. I’d like to fall back in love with photography and shoot with joy.
    2. I’d like to print my images and hang them on my walls.
    3. I’d like to do one session each month of one person in MY family {Kids, my parents, husband }.
    4. Go back to being a hobbiest and not a professional {at least until I can find some joy in it again}

  • January 7, 2015 at 2:30 PM

    1) Project 365 at least mostly complete
    2) Print my 365 photos and put into an album
    3) Read one photography/photo editing article or book each week
    4) Post to my blog at least once a week

  • January 7, 2015 at 2:32 PM

    Just got a D810 for birthday/Christmas! But I need to overcome a huge hurdle and that is/has been the one thing I can’t improve or make better. I have no time! I work 5 days a week at the “job” 4am-5pm I am doing something to get to work or get home. Then at home it’s 3 kids (6, 3 & 20mos) next thing I know it’s 9pm and I am a zombie. Most nights my brain is still working but my body shut down hours before and I can’t move from the couch. I only get 2-3 hours a night during the week with my kids and I am beyond hesitant to change this to do something of mine. So I want to improve something but I don’t know if I can get less than 4 hours of sleep a night.

  • January 7, 2015 at 2:33 PM

    I actually did reach some of my goals for last year, buy a new camera, take a workshop, created a photography portfolio website.
    This year I want to get better at lifestyle portraits and environmental photography. I want to get better at asking people if I can take their photo. I am going to start right off while I am on vacation this winter.
    As far as editing, definitely could do better at that. It takes so long because I like to use filters and textures. Editing daily, got to be honest, can’t do it. How about weekly?

  • Elena
    January 7, 2015 at 3:17 PM

    I decided to finally learn how to shoot on manual (after owning my DSLR for 6 years). This is how I found your blog. And the idea of starting my first project 365 I got from you either :)

  • Joanne Hubbard

    I am doing the 52 week photo plan this year with Sarah Cornish of My4Hens Photography. Thought I would have more success with a once a week photo challenge than a daily photo challenge. My other big goal this year is to use and become more confident with my Lensbaby lenses. I always admire pictures taken with this lens by other photographers and have neglected using it much. I plan to create a photo book of the year and will use the weekly prompt for my pages.

  • Jennifer Russell
    January 7, 2015 at 3:50 PM

    I will be working on my first 365 project. Currently in the process of it. My other goals are:
    To expand my photography style
    To actually become a profitable business
    To have an in home studio
    To be published
    To attend a photography workshop
    And I’m sure I will add to this list along the way.

    2015 Photography Goals:
    1) Take and fully participate in the photography class that I signed up for.
    2) Learn how to use my off camera flash
    3) Learn how to take better portraits
    4) Narrow down my photography field of interest

  • January 7, 2015 at 4:39 PM

    Hi there,
    Interesting that the first comment is also in line with my goals! I have just ordered, less than 10 minutes ago, my first full frame camera! I have been lusting over one and finally decided that this is something that I have waited way to long for.
    I try to shoot daily, but do not post…just for me, unless it is out of this world, incredibly awesome :)
    I am ordering, very shortly a “logo”…I have yet to do, and was only doing this in LR and was always changing up my design.
    Would love to build my very small business to a small business. I am not wanting to retire out of my current career as a registered nurse.
    Along with my logo/branding, to have a website. This is a very scary idea for me, I may need a little encouragement… :)
    Take more photo’s of my beautiful daughters…they are 26 and 29 years old and are amazing women. This would require all to “slow down” to make this happen, but I intend to this spring! those I will have to post!

  • January 7, 2015 at 4:46 PM

    My photography goals for this year are: complete a 52 project, improving my photos that I post on my blog and learning how to use my off- camera flash. Thanks for the great inspiration, tips and inspiration.

  • Phyllis
    January 7, 2015 at 5:19 PM

    My photography goals are similar to yours but with some added twists.

    1. I want to incorporate myself in more pictures.
    2. Complete Project Life albums.
    3. Focus on one item each month I’d like to improve on (i.e., lighting, focus, etc).
    4. Participate more on blogs to connect with other photographers who inspire me to click.

    like yourself i would love to do more photography of my children especially my three boys as my little girl who is 7 loves to have her image taken, the boys not so much but two of them are teenagers now, so even if i have to bribe them i intend to get a lot more images and of course my little man is 5 so i intend to take more images of him as we all know we cannot relive these years…..i intend also to complete my studio, finish two separate diploma courses in photography and start up my business in newborn/pregnancy photography, i would also like to do a few workshops and do field trips with some very dear friends and of course get to know my camera even better and maybe even purchase a new lens…..will it ever happen….thanks for all your help.

    It’s really cool idea to set yearly goal on photography which i never thought of it before. Thanks for the inspiration. i’m glad to see your page and your encouragement. Here we go..
    1. Will try 365 days challenge

    Starting year 4 of a 365 group… Folks from all over the country and Australia. Many of us have met up during our travels.
    I have an entry level DSLR and got an new identical body. The body was on sale, really cheap. I am just going to use a fixed 50 mm on the old one and keep it in my handbag all the time. I know my camera pretty well, but, just want to keep working with these a bit longer before I move up to a better camera.
    Oh, enter more contests! :)

  • January 7, 2015 at 7:28 PM

    I’m tackling my first 365 this year, and working on being IN a lot of the pictures, because I want my kids to know I was there too!

  • January 7, 2015 at 7:30 PM

    Some great goals :)

  • January 7, 2015 at 7:54 PM

    LOL. I really love #3. While not having that many photos, I can certainly relate to this goal in regards to any of my vacation folders. I never seem to work through the whole pile before I go onto more current stuff

  • January 7, 2015 at 9:13 PM

    I love the a day in the life idea! My goals this year are to do a project 365 and to learn how to you Lightroom and Photoshop more efficiently!
    I just have to tell you, I’m so glad I found your blog… It’s been such a huge inspiration and the tutorials are fantastic. Thank you!

  • January 7, 2015 at 10:07 PM

    I completed my first 365, but wasn’t satisfied with it. This year, my 365 is going to be a fresh photo every day.

  • Carrie
    January 7, 2015 at 11:13 PM

    I’ve followed your suggestion and am trying a 365. (my first) Each week I am working with a different mode on my camera (using tutorials) so that I can learn to use the manual modes with true understanding of what I am doing. I really feel that I have finally got the meaning of depth of field, this weekend on to shutter speed. Hopefully I will be able to use my camera by next year.

  • January 8, 2015 at 9:00 AM

    It was lovely to read your goals, Courtney! Very motivating I would say!
    I look forward to – complete my project 365. Get good in Indoor Photography Lighting skills and in Night Photography too!! Also maximum or only use of Manual Mode while clicking any pictures this year:)

    i had a photography business for 4 years but my husband and I did it on top of our full time jobs and it became a huge burden and was no longer fun so we closed it. I’ve just had my first child whom I will stay at home with (except for maybe part time) and I want to make photography fun again. Plus I’ve gotten a little rusty with my manual settings and sharp focus. It’s not exactly like riding a bike… Hoping 2015 brings some great pictures! :)

    my goal is to dip my toe into the Project 365 with my new digital camera. I used to be a film photographer many years ago, and finally came into the DSLR world with my Canon T5i for Christmas. Photography is a tool that supports my main hobbies – dog training in agility, Rally and obedience and tricks is a huge part of my life. So this is not an A level goal, but a B level one. Anything I can do toward it will be helpful. I’m thinking this is the warm-up year, and next year I hope to be familiar enough with my camera (that’s this years P365 goal) to do a “real” P365 next year :)

    my goal is to organize my pictures. Do a 3 x 52 challenge and to learn to shoot in Manual.

  • January 8, 2015 at 10:33 AM

    Complete Project 365 ( I am on Day 223)
    Take a monthly photo of my kids together (the 1st of every month)
    Edit my photo for at least 15 mins a day
    Join Clickin Moms
    Print my photos on 4×6 prints and write notes about each one
    Take a monthly photo of myself (the 8th of the month)
    Do a Summer Dayz 30 day challenge in August
    Do a “Day In the Life Project” for each of my kids on their birthday (and on mine)

  • January 8, 2015 at 2:29 PM

    My goal is to stop comparing my work to others and realize this is “my” style and be ok with it!

    Well, my goal always is to update my blog more regularly. But would you look at that–my last entry was in October! And, ugh, even older on my therealkikiportfolio.wordpress.com site! But two years ago I DID complete a project 365+1 (http://iconosquare.com/tag/therealkiki365plus1/) and it was huge for me. Very inspiring. (I even had my first show in over 10 years!) It started out as a simple capture of something that happened that day. But that got boring quickly and I found myself going out on walks during my lunch hour, seeking something to shoot! Admittedly, some of the shots are quick selfies just before midnight while others are mediocre images made more interesting with post processing. But the entire project was done on my iPhone 3 (I may have upgraded to the 4 midway through), editing and all. I was thinking of a project 52 this year but haven’t settled on a theme. And is THIS week 1 or did I miss that last week?

    I keep telling myself I’m going to learn more about video. It keeps never happening. Here’s to 2015

    My goal for 2015 is to complete (or attempt to complete) a Project 52. I would like to find more time with my camera to work on various other aspects including OCF and learning more about Lightroom and Photoshop Elements.

    Your goals are great and very much like mine ;)
    – 52 project, “a picture a week of each of my kids in 2015” I did this last year and LOVED it! Can’t wait to print books for each child. I like your goal of getting a pic a month of all your kids together too, might have to sneak that one in.
    -I too, would love to learn more about the video capabilities on my my camera. I shoot D7100. I don’t even know where to begin learn about this. Got the manual out the other night and I’m sure I’ll be watching youtube’s and doing lots of research.
    -I also need to finish my 2014 edits…lets see, I’m going to give myself till March?
    -I’d love to do some sort of stylized shoot each quarter…of my kids, friends, strangers, me? Just run with an idea and do it! I’m thinking fairy tea party in the Spring? ;)
    -Learn, practice, and maybe even take a class on how to use light in photos.

    Thanks Courtney! Just typing these out makes me more motivated to do them. Good luck with yours :)

    My biggest goal is completing a 365 photo challenge (so far, so good on day 11, lol)! I’m still a beginner but am now only shooting in manual which was my goal for last year. Thanks so much for your blog…it’s been VERY helpful in building my skills and confidence to try new things photography-wise.

    My goals for 2015 are:
    To finish my 365, its my first year trying and I am doing fairly well with the help of the App Im using for it.

    To get better with my portrait photography, I have an issue trying new perspectives and views. Always creative but sometimes it lacks the depth or the width I’d imagined for it.

    Also, to really nail down photoshop.. its such a complicated program that I have a problem getting into it sometimes for the layers and special overlays you can use with it.

    1. Complete my websites and keep them up to date: jpeeksphotography.com and peeks-skills.com
    2. Make a mobile living doing art, photography and writing.
    3. Be published in at least 6 publications by September with assignments for 4 more.
    4. Travel to at least 5 places I haven’t been to before by year end.
    5. Learn Lightroom.
    6. Complete Project 365.

    Project 365, classes and, finally read two good photography books that I purchased a couple of years ago. I’m 66 and I’ve been taking photos since I was nine – always point and shoot, even though I’ve owned some nice cameras over the last 20 years. This is the year I get off auto and really learn all those other modes.

    To complete my first project 365, focusing on things I’m grateful for. (See Ann Voskamp’s “1,000 Gifts”)
    To set up a tripod and take a photo every day of the woods behind our house as spring arrives.
    To do the same in the fall as the leaves are changing
