It took a little while, but I finally have a blogsite dedicated to my photography! It is a little bit small at the moment, but as I grow, so will my site. Feel free to follow me at Azura Skies Photography and on twitter @azura_skies. Very excited!
During lunch today I decided to sit down and work out some of my next steps to move forward on setting up my photography blog, and felt that I should set up a twitter account. Easy right? I managed to get my user name (yay!), added an image to my profile (easy done), and then … Continue reading Personal Goal: Photography Website Twitter Fail……
Today marks the first day back for Term 2, and I have gone over my goals and looked at what my next steps will be. In my last post, I had noted that I was having a bit of trouble working towards my goals - mostly because of time constraints - so I have broken … Continue reading Term 2 – Goals Revised
So we we are now at the end of Term 1 and it time to check in with my goals! I will admit, it probably isn't going to look too good at the moment as this term has been pretty full on. Some weeks it felt like I was just clinging to the edge of … Continue reading Goals Check In Term 1
It's official - I have graduated!!!! My Diploma of Photography arrived in the mail the other day, and is now hanging up on my wall. Was very excited to be able to use the frame I brought for it finally! It took a while to finally get to this point - it ended up taking 18 … Continue reading Personal Goal: Photography – Graduated!
Module 11 was all about the Final 6 - the start of building your portfolio. It was also the final assignment that needed to be submitted for the course. I was required to choose a particular field that I felt I was strong in, and submit my 6 best photos that I felt showed a … Continue reading Personal Goal: Photography – Module 11 Complete!
The start of this term has been pretty full on, but somehow I managed to create my first goals for this year. As I noted in my reflection from my last goals, I had decided to continue using this particular method of setting my goals. Once again the felt tips made their appearance as I … Continue reading Goal Setting -Term 1 2017
Before I start to work on my new goals for the year, I thought it would be good to look back at my previous goals and the processes that I have explored and reflect on how I have gone over the last few months. The Goal Setting Process At the beginning of my blog I … Continue reading Reflection – Goals 2016
Nearly there! Module 10 was all about reflection - what are your strengths? What do you want to improve? Where would you like to be and how could you go about achieving it?

It has been a little while since I´ve updated my blog, so be prepared for a small onslaught over the next day or so! I have had some successes with my personal goal so I have decided that this will be the first post I tackle 🙂 First off, I passed Module 9! I was … Continue reading Personal Goal: Photography – Some Successes!
This module was a bit funny for me - it wasn't really hard, but it was in four parts looking at different aspects focusing on sharpening, printing and bit colour, and I wasn't too sure if I have answered the questions right. I noted down my observations for each part but I might need to … Continue reading Personal Goal: Photography – Module 9 Complete! (maybe….)
The other day I posted a blog entry detailing the first day of the 2016 #EdChatNZ Conference held at Rototuna, Hamilton earlier this year. So today, I will continue with the second half of my post - I'd like to say that I will control my rambling a bit better this time round but can't … Continue reading PD, Conferences and the TA: EdChatNZ Day 2
Breezing through my modules! Module 8 is already completed and submitted! It was a smaller assignment this time, we just had to find out a bit about the equipment that we might need for our chosen field and then write a paragraph 'convincing' your husband/wife/bank manager that they should allow you to buy it … Continue reading Personal Goal: Photography – Module 8 Complete!
I have allowed myself a month for each module to be completed, but I raced through this one! I really did enjoy this module far more than the last module (which was about portraiture - see my previous blog post here). The focus on this assignment was to start looking at photography as a profession … Continue reading Personal Goal: Photography – Module 7 Complete!
For my personal goal I had decided that I was going to restart my photography course which I had to put on hold earlier this year. At the time I had been working on Module 6: Portraiture - I prefer to take more landscapes and macro photography than photos of people so I found this … Continue reading Personal Goal: Photography – Module 6 Complete!
So, last Thursday I participated in my first #EdchatNZ twitter chat - a step forward on my professional goal (yay!). As for the chat itself, it was a bit....overwhelming and yet underwhelming at the same time.... I think that I wasn't really expecting so many people to be participating, and I just kinda got a … Continue reading Professional Goal: EdchatNZ Twitter Chat 1
After working through the steps from my previous posts (Goal Setting and Brainstorming), I have finally settled on 2 goals which I would like to work on, as well as deciding on some techniques that I think will help me with achieving them. So without further ado, My Goals....... *cue corny music* Professional Goal To continue … Continue reading Goal Setting – Finalising and Implementing
So, for the last week I have been working on setting up my personal and professional goals by following the steps I wrote about in my last post. Because I am a visual/kinetic person, I found that getting out the felt tips and brainstorming my ideas on paper really helped me to organise my thoughts. I'm … Continue reading Goal Setting – Brainstorming
As one of my first posts, I kinda figured that I should set myself some goals - professional, personal, habits I would like to work on etc. So I sat there and had a bit of a think, and came up with some general (and rather basic) goals ie/ Personal - be more purposeful with my time. … Continue reading Goal Setting – A Different Way
