This year I aim to do a lot more photography than in 2011. But more importantly, I have a few specific goals in mind that I would like to get started on asap.
One of the things I would like to do this year, that I started partially in 2011 is to visit more places and take photographs. I spent all the sunny weekends of 2011 going off to nice places in Yorkshire such as Knaresborough and Harrogate. I want to continue this through 2012 and go and see some more local beauty spots. This has had a positive start already as I visited Yorkshire Sculpture Park on Monday and took the photos below.
The second thing I want to do, no, need to do, is to get more organised with the storing of negatives. My girlfriend and I have already started doing this following a great tipster article from brittany.. You can see our efforts so far in the photo below.
But we still have a lot to sort and a long way to go.
Finally, and probably the single most important thing I want to do in 2012 is get developing at home! I used to go to a night college in Leeds where I learnt all about developing and printing my own shots and these remain to be some of my best pieces of work because I have had a hand in making them from start through to the end.
I was lucky enough to be given some darkroom equipment by a friend last year (as well as a beautiful Kiev 88!) so I am going to start using it this very weekend. I got a starter kit of chemicals from The Darkroom and I have plans to meet some friends this weekend and give it a go. You can see our lovely chemicals ready to be opened here.
Other than that I think my analogue bucket list for 2012 is a lot like everyone else’s really. Keep shooting, keep learning and have lots and lots of LomoFun!
