The top five most-popular articles on Focus published in 2023

We've had an incredible year here at Focus. We've grown significantly both in terms of our content and also with those coming to Picfair, and signing up to their own Picfair Store, with many selling their photography for the very first time.

With Focus, our primary aim is to provide photographers, both on the Picfair platform and those in the wider community, with an invaluable resource to learn about photography at their own pace and find all the information they need to support them on their photography journey. Whether that's building on new skills by trying out a different type of photography genre or subject, or tips and advice on how to market and sell your photography, we do hope that these guides, whatever your skill level, have always been helpful to you and that you enjoy looking at Focus.

I am thrilled to present the top five Focus articles of 2023, and as always, I genuinely hope you enjoy reading these.

Thank you very much, and all the best.
