What’s your new year photography resolution ?

Christmas is here and the year is quickly reaching its end. It is the time of the year when we all start thinking about how we can make our life better and taking new year resolutions.

From a photography point of view I want to shoot more, think less about gear and technology and more about pictures.

I would really be interested in reading about your new year photography resolution so feel free to drop a comment about it and, if you care to share the best tip or trick you’ve learned in 2008 you can do it here.

In the mean time Merry Christmas for all

What’s the best tip/trick you’ve learned in 2008 ?

A discussion more than a poll but I think it would be really interesting if one could look back at 2008 and share the best tip/trick he/she learned about photography during that year.

For me it is probably that I’ve learned to handhold the ND filter in front of the polarizers instead of using a filter holder for wide angle shots.

I’ve bee struggling with vignetting caused by the filter holder when coupled with a polarizer on my tokina 12-24 and then fellow photographer in DPReview suggest I should simply drop the filter holder and handhold the filter in front of the lens instead.

The idea sounded pretty crazy for me at first but with some practice it is rather easy, I’ve taken shots like that as long as 1 min exposure with virtually no shake.

Ok granted it is not practical if you like to have a hot chocolate while waiting for your shot but it is the best solution I’ve found so far.

So what’s your tip for 2008 ?
