Start the year with a bang!

Fireworks - Start the New Year with a bang! by Michael Mariano

Fireworks display show - SM MOA, Philippines

Every year we always have the chance to start anew – a fresh year to work with. People look forward to the new stuff that they have acquired during the past holidays, others to new experiences that might await them at the start of the year. I on the other hand tend to reflect on the year past and what have i done photographically and as an artist. This photo shot a year back is one of the few decent fireworks shots that i have captured. I was working on a food menu shoot when a sudden burst of fireworks came out of the restaurant where i was shooting. Good thing we were on break that time and that gave my the chance to go out set my tripod quickly to capture this frame. The past year has been good and bad at the same time. It has been a challenging time on most levels and looking at this photo makes me look forward again to better opportunities and to continue the good practices. Starting a short and attainable list should help especially if you have a lot on your mind.

Clean out the old stuff that you are not using for there are others that might be able to make better use of them. Look for photographic opportunities, subjects and whatnots that might be lurking just around the corner. Recharge your body and mind with small photographic exercises or even start a new hobby to get those creative juices flowing. Say to yourself – “This will be my year and I’ll go out and seize every opportunity to better myself.” Be on the ready, for you never know when the next burst of fireworks from the cauldron of life. I definitely will prepare myself and as the latin saying goes:  “Carpe Diem – Seize the day!”

A Happy New Year and may you start the year with a bang!
