When you've been a photographer for many years you give some knowledge for granted, and the Rule of Thirds is certainly among those. But as of today, this is still the most searched photography-related topic on Google. So maybe I should write about it. If there's enough interest, I might cover more photography basics. Let me know in the comments if it's something you would like to see here. What is
So, what can you expect from me in 2020? If you follow me on Instagram (like you should, @fabienb) you may have noticed how I've gone quiet in December. This is often the case for me.

Together with John Hughes, I will be hosting a street photography workshop in London on the 23rd of November. John and I have become friends through photography.

While in Tel Aviv for the OFFF event and my workshop, I decided to visit Jerusalem again. When I went last year I explored the holy city to find good landscape and travel photography opportunities.
