Photography Accessories 101: The B&H Photography Podcast03/31/2022
Except for the new flagship OM SYSTEM OM-1 Mirrorless Camera (formerly Olympus), there haven’t been many major camera announcements thus far in 2022, so we thought for this episode of the B&H Photography Podcast we’d start an introductory conversation about photo accessories and the wide range of tools and toys available to improve your photography―or just make it easier.
Along with our guest, B&H Explora writer and photographer Todd Vorenkamp, we made an outline of the most important accessory categories, and we speak about the photo disciplines for which each is used and what is important to understand when purchasing these items for your specific photographic practice. We discuss tripods and camera support, straps, bags, and gear protection, lens filters, lens adapters, remote controls, and more. Because this conversation is primarily concerned with outdoor and natural-light photography, we don’t get much into accessories for the studio, but we do touch on flash photography and light modifiers.
Thanks to the insights of Vorenkamp and our host, Allan Weitz, we also learn ways to avoid unnecessary or inferior accessories and even little hacks to make your accessories perform better. Join us for this informative episode.
