2023 has been a tumultuous year. But isn’t every year?

I was able to get a lot of articles written, for you, my loyal readers. But not as many as I would like. I slowed down near the end of the year, for personal reasons that I won’t bore you with.

But, as the year draws to a close, I thought I’d take a look back at all the photography articles I wrote in 2023 and highlight my five best.

These Are Not the Most Popular Stories

These are not necessarily my most popular or well-read stories.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned recently, it’s that a well-written and informative article isn’t enough to get you a lot of readers.

What is? Good question — I’ll let you know if I find out.

A well-written and informative article used to be enough. But, with algorithms changing, my readership took a nosedive this year.

Although some of these stories did well, others didn’t get traction. In any case, I chose these five photography articles simply because, in my opinion, they’re the ones that exhibit my best writing.

So, without further ado, here they are, in no particular order…
