Happy New Year from Bryan and me! I hope everyone had an enjoyable and memorable New Year’s Eve gathering with friends and family. With each new year, we have the opportunity look back at what we've accomplished in the previous year while also looking forward to what we want to accomplish in the year ahead.
 
With that in mind, we want to know – What are you focusing on this year? (pun intended)
 
We want to know about your photography goals for 2016. Are you going to attempt an up-until-now unexplored branch of photography like landscapes, architecture, portraiture, or macro? Or is it your goal to refine and hone your skills to become a recognized master in your already-chosen specialty?
 
Do you want to check off some of your bucket list locations and travel to far-flung destinations? Or do you want to concentrate your efforts on documenting family events, immortalizing a child's growth and youthful exuberance? Maybe your goal is to shoot more, possibly even every day?
 
As for me, my goal is to use my photography equipment to complete more video projects this year. With that in mind, I have purchased a Tascam DR-40 to augment my audio recording capabilities and I'm planning on getting a DJI Phantom 3 in the not-so-distant future. We'll see how that goes...
 
So, what is your focus for 2016? Let us know in the comments.

I purchased an Oben BC-139 to use on a second tripod. I've been really impressed with its quality. This deal on the BC-166 brings Oben's top-tier ball head down to the same price level as their mid-range BC-139. If you're looking for a good, solid, affordable ball head with a great load capacity, this would be a very good choice. [Sean]

My use of Allen wrenches/hex keys probably increased 10-fold after taking up photography. Hex bolts are everywhere – tripods, quick release plates, ball heads, sliders – if your photography gear has a bolt, there's a good chance you're going to need a hex key to loosen or tighten it.
 
Until recently, my method of being prepared involved a small zip-top plastic bag kept inside my main camera bag's outer compartment which held every different hex key, bolt or miscellaneous part I thought I might ever need. And while the system worked, I often found myself without the hex key I needed when I needed it (having forgotten to replace it after use), or simply wasting time trying to sort through the assortment of tools to find the exact one I needed.
 
Then I came across a video by Mark Wallace entitled "Gear and Tips for Overseas Travel" where he mentions keeping a small bicycle multi tool in his gear bag to cover his photography tool needs. I thought it was a good idea, so I thought I'd pick up something similar.
 
The bicycle multi tool I chose was the Crank Brothers Multi Bicycle Tool (10-Function). It's a little larger than the one Mark carries, but it also includes a flat head screwdriver which I thought might come in handy at some point. So far, it's proved to be a very useful addition to my kit. If reduced size and weight are priorities, Mark's choice would be a better option overall.
 
Of course, hex key sets have been around for a long time; they aren't anything new. However, the addition of a few other tools – like the Phillips/flat head screwdrivers and Torx T-25 wrench – makes the bicycle multi tool a photographer's best friend.

Leaning out the side of a helicopter, held only by a harness and his sense of connectedness with the earth's endless sea of light, Vincent Laforet captures cities from above, in a way that resembles pathways on a circuit board, or a network of neuronal synapses. The AIR series began as a creative idea for an image to accompany a psychology article, and turned into groundbreaking aerial photography techniques that have helped define Vincent's own style.
 
Vincent Laforet is a French American director and photographer. In 2002 he shared the Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography with four other photographers as a member of The New York Times staff's coverage of the post 9/11 events overseas that captured "the pain and the perseverance of people enduring protracted conflict in Afghanistan and Pakistan." He has been sent on assignment by Vanity Fair, The New York Times Magazine, National Geographic, Sports Illustrated, Time, Newsweek, and Life.
 
In 2002, PDN named Vincent Laforet as one of the “30 photographers under 30 to watch?. In 2005, American Photo Magazine recognized Laforêt as one of the “100 Most Influential People in Photography.” He is a DGA Director (Directors Guild of America) and of the ICG (International Cinematographers' Guild – Local 600.) Laforet has been awarded 3 of the prestigious Cannes Lions (Platinum, Gold, Silver) for his commercial directing work.
 
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
