      A simple question for everyone here – what kind of shooting or editing skills are you looking forward to learning/improving in 2020?

      I’ll start – I want to learn a bit more on infrared photography and I’ll get an infrared filter soon.

      I want to do more astrophotography (deep sky objects) and learn to post process them well. The softwares available for Mac are limited. I would also love to shoot more wildlife and gain the skills / learn the techniques to get better wildlife photographs.

      I have a cheap infrared filter right now that I bought to try my hands on. So far have not shot anything usable πŸ™‚

      Like John, I’d like to work more on my Infra-red photography. The other thing I want to do, is to relearn Photoshop properly and start doing some textured overlays, etc.

      First of all I’d like to wish good luck to all that contribute to this thread. I personally am terrible at keeping New Years Resolutions so I do my best to avoid making them in the first place. But it never hurts to try so….

      I live 50 miles away from the central Oregon coast. I want to get to the coast more often this year and work on long exposures using ND filters. Also more landscape photography in general. AND continue to work on my editing skills. Working the farm for the last 15 years did not require keeping up with technology. My computer skills are probably less than a 5th grader. πŸ™‚ Luckily for me light has not changed since the late 70’s when I first discovered my love for photography using my OM1n.

      Happy New Years everyone. πŸ™‚

      This is a great question mate! Dunno if it could be considered as a photography skill persΓ©, but I’m willing to learn more about ethnography.
