I must admit I haven't been the most consitent poster with the advent of the new year. There hasn't been one overwhelming reason for this reduction in posts; rather more a sum of many little reasons. First, I changed my camera with the start of the new year (yes I know again :) but I will discuss this in further in another post). So with another camera comes the process of learning it and becoming fluent using it. I wanted to make sure I had a good handle of it before the warm weather hit so any lifestyle portraiture session I do this year would still produce images I was proud of.
In addition to wanting to learn the new camera, I have just wanting to get back into photography a lot more. The last quarter of last year I just didn't photograph as much as I would like, so with the new year I made the resolution to get back to using the camera a lot. It was just a matter of changing routines for the first couple months (and braving the crappy weather) and now my passion has re-ignited. I am pretty sure I have already taken over 1500 photographs this month alone.
Another resolution I have been working on is my physical fitness. With the new year we began tapering my drugs again I noticed a huge drop in energy (no longer having the high steroids to prop me up). In addition, I have been on steroids now for 2 years. One of their major side effects is eating and destroying your major muscle groups. So in an effort to combat this and try and get back to a better fitness level I have been focusing on trying to get a lot more active.
The final reason for the lack of posts is I just don't really know what to write about. This blog has been around now for 2 years and seen numerous small changes as I have gone along. Now being 2 years after my cancer diagnosis I am slowly trying to fight back to a more normal life. It is now time I reach out to all of you. I write this blog for you the reader.
I am curious what it is you would like me to continue to write about? What are the types of posts that you like and what are the types of posts you don't like? What would you like to see from this blog? more reflections, more photography, a mix of both? Writings about photography?
Really it is up to you. So please write me either through comments or email and let me know what you would like from this blog. I look forward to hearing from you all :)
