Part of the creative lighting process is knowing how to make the best of what you have. If you already have some on-camera strobes, but want to modify the way the light hits your subject, you're in luck—you can do it without smashing open your piggy bank.

Yesterday, I visited the B&H Booth at the New York Photo Festival in Brooklyn, and I also attended the tour for the Press, with a group of many other reporters. During the tour, the group was taken from one gallery to another, where the works of various photographers and multimedia artists were on display. Much of the work was absolutely fascinating. Seeing photos of the work cannot compare with seeing them in person, in the environments in which they are displayed. 

The Festival takes place from now until May 15th, and is definitely worth checking out if you need inspiration or if you want to get some fresh new ideas. Here are some scenes from the Press tour—all shot with the Fuji X100.

We've previously written about Gaffers Tape being an unsung hero of photographers and videographers. Taping down cords, pulling clothing back for fashion photography, and solving light-leak issues are only some of the uses we discussed.

We decided to talk to a number of photographers about how they used Gaffers Tape.

Have you ever needed to scan documents in a hurry? I know that my mother has had to—she's a real estate broker. Many people may know that B&H sells scanners—we are a camera store, after all! However, the Wolverine PASS Hand Scanner is a specialized portable, battery powered scanner that's ideal for scanning on the fly. Recipes, photos, flyers, contracts, etc. can all be scanned and saved in B/W or color, at 300 or 600 DPI. This item runs on two AA batteries, and can connect to your Mac or PC for transfer of your files. Because it is so portable, it can accompany you in your bag or briefcase when you're on the go. This is a convenient option that road warriors may want to consider.

Who Knew is an ongoing weekly series featuring some of the items that you wouldn't typically find in your average camera store. But then again, we're not your typical camera store.

 My recent post about the Mamiya RZ33 - Mamiya’s latest take on medium-format DSLRs - was followed by an unusually high volume of comments that can be boiled down to several key categories and a sidebar conversation with "euroblade," a reader who’s tearing his or her kishkas out trying to choose between the RZ33 and a BMW R100RT motorcycle, which cost about the same but satisfy opposing needs. (Feel free to cast your vote folks: the RZ33 or the motorcycle? And we expect spirited, lively debate on this one!)

Some photographs continue to hold our interest long after they are taken. Others don't. What accounts for the difference? It's worth looking at our own work with that question in mind. The answer may tell us what kinds of photographs we should be taking.

Polaroid was the first company to offer photographers instant gratification. While we mostly think about instant film prints that the company is famous for, the lesser known 20x24 Polaroid camera is something of a rare unknown beast of legend. I recently took a tour to view one right here in NYC at 20x24 Studios. For those of you not as familiar with the Polaroid line, the 20x24 studio camera is an old-school giant that shoots massive 20 inch by 24 inch exposures.

In the market for new photo editing peripherals? While tablets and trackpads have their specific uses, you should probably consider the advantages that a gaming mouse can offer. Though more expensive than standard mice, they are top of the line products designed for better performance and long periods of use.

Don't feel the need to upgrade your older DSLR but still want it to perform better? There's good news: it's possible! However, it will take a bit of smart investing and will require some careful selection based on the goals and tasks you want to accomplish while shooting.

From within the deep, dark corners of B&H comes a very-little-known item. The Bushnell Trophy Cam Digital Trail camera is used to capture photos and video of wildlife, without scaring off the critter. Perfect for the creative-thinking wildlife enthusiast on a budget, it is very easy to install.

How do you know if there’s a tiger shark swimming nearby if you can’t see it?

I was asking myself this very question on an underwater photography documentary expedition to the Western Philippines a few years ago. It didn’t take very long to start seeing the clues.

Our “Captured By The Light 2010” tour is off to a great start and is receiving RAVE reviews!  In our first 3 days we've visited with over 700 photographers and gave away over $18,000 worth of door prizes including some goodies from B&H too. Why not check it out right here. We would love to see you there. Be sure to use promo code CBLBH10 to save yourself $20 off the regular registration price.

In this post, I want to reprise a small segment of the CBTL program on lighting. It's a cool technique for taming the harsh sun light and doesn't cost you an “arm and a leg” in gear either. I hope you enjoy it.
