Irina Vinnik was born, and currently lives, in St. Petersburg, Russia. Growing up she was educated as an architect. She had a few experienced years as a web designer, but has left that occupation to write and illustrate children’s books. We came across her stunning work and absolutely had to share it with you.

Become a Better Photographer

Instead of the advice of photography professionals, instructors and experts, (who are excellent sources of information), Panasonic decided to ask a large sample of beginner and amateur photographers what mistakes they make most often. The findings create an instructive checklist you can use to highlight the mistakes you make. Once you’ve evaluated yourself against the survey participants, you’ll then have a nice action plan of photography techniques you know need improvement. Focus on these to learn and practice.
