Yanik’s Photo School went live on April 5th of this year. Actually, it was called Yanik’s Photo Blog then and I wasn’t really sure where I would be going with it. It didn’t take long for me to change the name and focus the site on photography learning. Looking back, I’m glad I chose this area of photography since I combined two passions: photography and teaching.
I’m also very excited for 2009! I’ m in the process of moving to Montreal (hopefully in April) which will give me access to 2 professional studios which means more tutorials on a subject close to me: lighting! I’ll also have a video camera to show you detailed lighting setups and see me in action. For the avid post processor in you, I’ll still be showing you some cool stuff to do in Photoshop and Lightroom.
I thought it would be great to start 2009 off by bringing my favorite photography tutorials of 2008 out of the archives for you. So here are my top 10! Enjoy!
