I've never been a big fan of New Year's resolutions. However, I've always been a fan of setting goals. That may seem a bit ironic and it may just be semantics, but I always felt like an un-met goals was still obtainable – while an unfulfilled resolution felt more like a failure.
 
As such, my goals for 2015 are as follows:
 
Shoot more creatively; get out of my own comfort zone
I tend to get stuck in my own comfort zone, photographically speaking. Some of the biggest rewards in life also come with the biggest risks. I've rarely regretted doing something, because even in failure, I've learned valuable lessons. But I've often regretted not going out on a limb.
 
Sell off unused gear
I've generally done a good job in investing in the gear that's well suited for my needs. However, there are a few items lying around my house that have become irrelevant due to upgrades or changes in my shooting preferences. By selling off this gear, I can not only free up space in my home, but I can also reallocate those funds to purchase gear I will likely use much more often.
 
Be diligent about backups
A hard drive failure in 2014 meant that I lost a lot of images that I didn't have backups for. This year, I'm going to be more rigorous about my backup procedures to ensure that when the inevitable happens, it doesn't leave me empty handed.
 
So what are your photography goals for 2015? Let us know in the comments!
