The last day of 2009, closure for a fantastic year. Written more than 70 blog posts and snap over 30,000 pictures! And there is still a lot more which has not been publish here because my busy schedule to catch up. Having a blog is fun and responsibility to contribute knowledge to world. I have used better tags to make my posts available in most search results. I feel really great when someone told me they had learned or know something by reading my blog. Thank you again!
2009 is a year of learning , a year with new ideas and opportunities. Photography has moved beyond the amateur boundary. I strive hard to work (or pretend to) as professional photographer. Study and compare the different between pro and amateur in every sense. Deliver my best effort for my client, regardless it is a low pay task or even free service. It is my commitment and passion in building my own style and brand. All these efforts are drive by very strong passion and I believe the big time will come someday. I just need to continue doing this.
My plan for year 2010 is to venture in digital photography editing, have more portraiture shoots and contribution to charity or society. A good photo editing skill is more than icing on cake and it could top up more commercial value for the pictures. Portraiture skill will be a tough test for me on directing model and conveying my ideas and thinking in photography. Me never forget to contribute back to society as free photography service. Same time I am thinking to streamline my blog and other social network to have better exposure and consistency. Do suggest what are the Do’s and Don’ts you wish to see from me. Wish you HAPPY GREAT NEW YEAR!
