My January planned shoot was two weeks ago at the photo workshop I attended by Anne Almasy.

What a great time of reinforcing foundational skills, meeting other photographers and learning some new skills! I knew we were having some models at the workshop, so I was excited about that.

I came away with a renewed confidence in where I am in my skill level. I also gained confidence with shooting in complete manual. Since I purchased this camera, I have only used full auto on a few occasions when I was taking, essentially, snapshots. I normally shoot on aperture priority. But after spending an afternoon with some direction on full manual shooting, I was reminded of the satisfaction and control I always enjoyed from my film days.

I am excited about where my photography is, and where I see it going in 2012. The best way to improve skill is to shoot, shoot, shoot. So that’s what I’m going to continue to do. I am very excited about my February Be ’12. Be sure to check back to see the images!

Did you have a Be ’12 project in January? I hope you will post a link in the comments so I can enjoy your work.
