Photography in 2023

Photography in 2023 

Entry No. 47

Each New Year, it's a clean slate. I am sure I am not the only one who would attest that 2022 was a difficult year, more so than the year prior.

Writing this as Christmas approaches & the New Year is approaching {postig shortly after the 1st of Jan} I am manifesting & goal-centering how I want my 2023 to be.

A big part of 2023 will be photography, again, many of you can relate to that as well.

I tweaked one of my manifestation questions to ask: How Do I Want My Photography to Feel?

I am at the point where I would like to slow down pressing the shutter, which isn't to say, I want to slow down taking photos. If I could, I would take photos every day. However, I don't want to just take a photo. Truthfully, I love simple photos that show a feeling or a moment-even it's a coffee cup sitting in a ray of light. However, I want to take more photos that feel epic to me & hopefully tell a story--project a feeling to the on-looker.

Writing my New year's intention to grow & improve photography as well as photography skills in 2023. 

How Do I Want My Photography to Feel?

I think it is the lack of travel that has lit a fire to take 'epic' photos, but photographing my familiar & daily surroundings is creatively challenging as well. An epic photo, to me, doesn't have to be an erupting volcano, but something as simple as a snowy day, capturing a bird, just so, at the bird feeder, with other birds, slightly blurred in the background, in flight.

Photography in 2023, I want to practice patience, & hone in on technique, composition, & subjects. I want to capture a feeling--not just a still-life image.

In late 2022, I really enjoyed photographing horses & rural wildlife. I would like to advance in 2023 with animal/wildlife photography possibly by expanding the subject to birds, squirrels & other critters who pop into the frame. Again, patience & practice will be 2023 photography virtues.

Photography in 2023 means exploring more & staying curious about new subjects as well as photography skills. Blending my interest in interesting street photography with the intention to tell a story, a strong story is inspiring me to pick up my camera & go out & shoot.

I hope you'll come along for the journey. @katelynchefphotography_ on Instagram
