This week's Sunday Stills challenge was to post your favourite photo from 2011 and your photographic goals for 2012.
I cheated, I couldn't pick one. These three are my favourite "Sunday Stills" photos:
I wasn't sure if the challenge only applied to photos from Sunday Stills or if it was open to other pics, so I'm adding these two that I had posted on Wordless Wednesdays.
Which photo do you like?
Now on to goals... I'm really hoping to improve both my basic skills and to learn how to edit photos better. Pretty much all I do is crop and add my little watermark. Sometimes I'll tweak the colours a bit, to make the pic more like how it appeared to me in person or to bring out some definition. However sometimes I'd like to be able to do a bit more... there are some pics that I'd like to share that need "stuff" in the background removed (or foreground.... helllloooo poo piles lol) or they need to be straightened a bit, that kind of thing.
Also, I managed to find a class that was affordable AND fit my odd schedule (Sundays starting in February) so I'm really looking forward to that.
I had mentioned awhile ago that other than my Nikon D90 I don't really have a camera that I like. My favourite point & shoot (Nikon S210) was knocked off a shelf in the barn (bad barn kitty), then we got a Canon Powershot something that I liked and it died while we were on vacation. We replaced it with a Canon Elph that I just really haven't gotten along with (seriously, that camera does NOT like me). Shopping with hubby I was pretty sure I'd end up with a camera for Christmas (he likes the Elph so it will be his) Imagine my surprise and delight to get TWO new cameras for Christmas!! (yep, spoiled lol) I now have a silver Nikon S9100 and a red Nikon P500 - 36x zoom!
