A Look Back on Blog Posts from 2010

This year has brought about a lot of changes at Pictage, in the Community Team, and on this blog. We started out as the Pictage Blog, developed a new editorial direction, and are finishing the year as The Photo Life, an educational resource for professional photographers.

As we reflect on 2010, we’re thankful to the many blog contributors that have taken the time to make The Photo Life such a great resource for professional photographers. Before 2011 begins we thought it would be fitting to look back on some of the blog posts that represent The Photo Life and the fabulous contributors that have made it what it is today.
