The Reading Project: February Update February 28, 2014 0

New Year’s ambitions strike again. Remember my New Year, New Plan: I Need Your Help post? That post where I said I was going to read one photography book a month? That post where I spoke about not setting myself up for failure and making unattainable New Year’s goals?
Yea, *that* post.
Well, I’d like to say I’ve finished my book for January and am on the last pages of my book for February… but that is far from the case. The first book I decided to read was Understanding Exposure, 3rd Edition: How to Shoot Great Photographs with Any Camera. This is just about on everyone’s list and I’ve had it on my bookshelf for more than a year, but each time I pick it up and read, it’s like reading a textbook. While the photography is beautiful, it is slow, since I really want to understand what I’m reading. Sadly, I’m only half way through the book.
See for yourself:
Which makes me think, maybe I need to switch gears for a little while. Reading something more engaging might help me catch up and potentially learn in a different way. So for Valentine’s Day, my sweetness bought me another photography book: The Design Aglow Posing Guide for Family Portrait Photography: 100 Modern Ideas for Photographing Newborns, Babies, Children, and Families. Not on my list, but I’ve eyed it for a bit.
Has anyone read this book? I would love to know your thoughts.
While the book has more pages than Understanding Exposure, it is definitely an easier read. I’m hoping I will get through a good chunk of it in the next 3 weeks.
So what about you? How have you been doing with your goals this year?0
