To stay motivated and start carrying my camera daily. It’d be nice to get at least one good image I’m proud of a month. To complete a series, and throw a gallery viewing or get one of my shots in a show. To continue to learn and expand my knowledge through networking with other street photographers.

I intend to work on more clearly defined projects rather than only generalist urban shooting.

I want to produce one or more photobooks, if only for my own satisfaction and review.

Cool when you get the book printed, share it on the forum!

I’ve found a way of printing in b&w (black ink only) using a linux print control interface called CUPS. On a budget Canon Pixma 3+black inkjet. These are sort of sub exhibition quality but very viewable for reviewing ongoing work. A good paper for this purpose i’m using is HP Colorlok Premium 100gsm; brighter than typical plain paper with deeper blacks. So i’ve printed a lot of recent pictures now and i’ve begun the journey towards putting together the basis of a book perhaps.

I’m getting maybe 150-250 A4 b&w (10×8 with border) from a 541XL black cartridge. via usb/pc, i haven’t counted exactly but a lot. The color 540 cartridge needs to be in situ but via CUPS i can specify 600 dpi mono high and just print with black ink.

My goal this year is to create a portfolio of 50 images that I have consciously created.

Not because I intend to become a professional photographer, but simply because I feel that having “I want to be a better photographer” as a goal is way too vague. So I thought I’d create some sort of metric to be able to gauge my progress–as subjective as it is.

Roger Hicks and his wife Frances Schultz ( both veteran photographers) have a very good primer/essay pages on folios and critique in the photoschool section of their website rogerandfrances.com Recommended reading as well as the various other modules onsite.

Cant see the folio page (just checked) but the critique page is a useful read: http://rogerandfrances.com/subscription/ps%20critique.html

Advice on curation is within the critic sections///

Even though it’s a little late, I want to wish everybody a happy new year!!

Normally I do not do new year resolutions. 
But, since I will be a first-time father any day now I will shift my focus from photographing the streets to capturing the growth of my baby boy! Hopefully, this will result in a nice photobook at the end of the year.

To put up all my commercial work as a wedding photographer on my website. Try to work on at least one documentary short film.

The doc film sounds good, hope you can progress that.
