“How do you make pictures about a person who doesn't exist anymore?” This was the fundamental question facing Jessica Hines while sorting through a box of her brother Gary’s letters, photographs, and other objects from his military service in Vietnam some 35 years after his return—25 years after his life ended in a battle with post-traumatic stress.

When Apple introduced M1 Pro and M1 Max chips for the MacBook Pro lineup in 2021, it easily became the best laptop for video editors. The balance of performance and efficiency made it possible for creative professionals to edit high-res videos on the go. Apple has since updated the MacBook Pro lineup for 2023, with the M2 Pro and the M2 Max chips, maintaining its title as the laptop for video editing. B&H Recommends…

Over the past 35 years, Sally Davies has photographed the streets of New York City with a mix of anthropological endurance and high style. But, despite her encyclopedic vision of the city’s exterior face, Davies became troubled by the thought that future generations would know nothing of the people living inside all the buildings she had pictured. Her resulting quest to photograph and interview New York residents in the spaces they call home “had wings right from the first day,” as she describes it—with people of different races, genders,

For a Kansas-born Midwesterner, Austin Gilmore’s resume reads more like a “What do you want to be when you grow up?” wish list than an actual CV. His job history includes time as a TV and movie producer, actor, animator, author, board game designer, toy maker, and art director—just to name a few. He helped create the Emmy-winning TV miniseries, Hatfields & McCoys, produced the New York Times bestseller, The Explorers Guild, and toured the world as a band documentarian. On top of all that, Gilmore is a wildly talented illustrator. His new

The term “pixel peeping” might be a product of the digital age, but the concept of critically eyeballing the details of a photograph go way back to the earliest days of photography. Back when film was king, the only way to “zoom in” to see exactly how good your lens-focusing skills were was to view your transparencies and negatives through a loupe. During the heyday of film photography, the most popular loupes were manufactured by Schneider

With many people moving to working from home indefinitely, there are new hurdles to overcome in terms of efficiency and security, especially regarding file sharing for photographers, videographers, and other content creators in general. Working in an office space or other professional environment often included access to a variety of tools one might take for granted, including secure networks and the ability to share files with people locally with little regard to any potential mishaps. With remote work happening now more than ever, a solid

There is no better example of the inspirational saying, “If you can see it, you can be it,” than in the grassroots efforts of the community-based arts program Newburgh Community Photo Project (NCPP). Founded in 2017 by photographer, educator, and community activist Vincent Cianni, NCPP teaches photography and related media to an underserved population of Newburgh youth, with a goal to explore critical social justice issues directly related to participants’ lives and community. In our second story on notable youth photo programs, Cianni

There's an adage among artists that goes, "If you can't make it good, make it big. And if you can't make it big, make it red." There's an awful lot of truth behind that statement, which I won't get into right now, but whenever I see photographs with big eye-grabbing pops of color, that pearl of wisdom always comes to mind. The same cannot be said about black-and-white photography. Color elements do not exist in B&W photographs. In their place are infinite shades of gray, book-ended by whatever measures of pure black and pure white exist

ProRes RAW. Is it ProRes? Is it raw? What is ProRes even? How do I get it? Why do I want it? What do I do with it once I have it? Okay, okay! We heard you. ProRes RAW is an exciting and relatively new video format, but it brings with it an almost endless number of questions. I will start off by saying that it is well worth the effort since raw video can offer increased dynamic range and detail than standard formats. Also, you do have to be sure that every stage in your process supports ProRes RAW. If you follow along here, we will help get you

If you live in the northern hemisphere, it’s summertime, which means it’s time to give thought to taking pictures under bright, sunny skies. Aside from being toasty warm, summertime also packs more daylight into our waking hours than the dead of winter. The farther north you live, the longer the sun lingers in the sky, and if you go far enough north, it never sets at all! This is all terrific but, like all terrific things, there’s a price to pay. In the case of photography, the price of all these additional hours of sunshine is that the sun

When it comes to photographic dynasties, the name Caponigro holds a privileged position at the top of the list. The father / son duo of Paul and John Paul Caponigro are masters of their respective crafts, spanning many years and a broad reach, from the muted tonalities and classical elegance of Paul’s large format landscapes to John Paul’s complex, ethereal digital composites. In 2016, B&H Photo hosted father and son as invited speakers at the B&H OPTIC Conference, where they both presented their work to great acclaim. Off stage, they
