Anne Belmont’s passion for flower photography shows through her ethereal and magical photos. In this photography seminar, Anne will give a peek into her techniques: how she uses life experiences in her visual storytelling and how she takes risks and experiments. She will also cover how Lensbaby allowed her to create her abstract and fine art photos in-camera, as its lenses allow for a shallow depth of field. We hope this presentation will inspire you with creative photography ideas. Share yours in the Comments section, below! Sponsored by Lensbaby.

In this B&H Event Space video, Jem Schofield, founder of the production company and educational resource the C47, walks you through the challenges of and effective solutions to film production as a solo endeavor or with a small crew. While film production equipment has gotten better and less expensive in recent years, the size of film crews have shrank. Companies are building small in-house production teams to create ongoing and high-quality content for their web and social media outlets, and corporate video production companies have also changed in terms of their structure and resources. Most significant, clients expect higher quality content for the same or less money. In addition to demonstrating specific equipment ideally suited to smaller crew production, including companies such as Triad-Orbit (T-O), for lighting / audio support and grip solutions, and Westcott for lighting and light shaping tools, Schofield discusses the big picture of modern digital camera systems from a technical standpoint. He addresses the realities of production from today into the future, focusing on the tough transitions from standard resolution to full HD to 4K acquisition, post and delivery. After watching, you’ll have a better grasp of how to seek out solutions, as well as how to be more efficient on set when working alone or with a smaller crew.

Photography icon Robert Capa once famously said, ‘If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.’ One of the great ways to get people’s attention with your photos is to bring them close to your subject. Getting in close can be achieved with a macro lens or even zooming in close with a long lens. This is a fun and exciting type of photography that anyone can learn. And the best part is, you can take close-up photos anywhere! Learn how to take high-quality photos of small subjects and make a giant impression on your viewer. Jeff Cable, a 5-time Olympic photographer and one of our most popular speakers shares his best tips for getting in close. He will help you understand the challenges and best practices in macro and close-up photography. Jeff Cable Photography http://www.jeffcable.com/phototours http://www.jeffcable.com/

Imagine yourself a wonderful new world, one so tiny, it is barely visible to the naked eye: A world of magical landscapes, colors and shapes, populated by strange, fascinating creatures, just like in a science-fiction or a fantasy movie. Now imagine that not only this world is not fictional, Hollywoodish, or Photoshopped, it also fits in the palm of your hands, hiding right under your feet, anywhere, and in reach- from the backyard through the parks, fields, and even inside your homes. Nadav Bagim has created a magical wonderland of giant toadstools, pastel skies and brightly-colored flora in which insects and other critters roam.  The Wonderland series presents a remarkable creativity and originality and by using a unique but rather simple and elegant artificial lighting and household objects, from vegetables to plastic bags, Nadav was able to capture all those photos in camera without digital manipulation. In a miniature studio on his kitchen table, he captured praying mantises on mars, romantic snails kissing on a coconut hill, and lots of other surreal scenes. The series has been published in numerous magazines and websites all around the world.  In his presentation, 'A small new world', Nadav will open a hatch to this fascinating world, and will share with you how to create and document this hidden paradise using creativity and a lot of love for the little ones.  Nadav Bagim Nadav Bagim (a.k.a AimishBoy) is not going to write about himself in a third-person style as you would expect from these "about" sections. He will not present himself as a 33 year old who started as a Neuroscience student until he discovered that his real passion lay in the photography world. He will not mention that he is self-taught, because everybody is nowadays, and will not describe how he specializes in macro photography but also enjoys shooting many more objects and subjects that pop into his head- that you will be able to see for yourself in his galleries, lectures and workshops. However, the one thing Nadav is willing to write is a big  Thank You, for taking the time to visit his site and view his photos. He surely hopes you will enjoy them. www.AimishBoy.com

Travelling and discovering our natural world and its cultures with your camera allows you to experience the world intimately and with all of your senses. The travel photographer does not just point his lens and shoot—he explores, he listens, he searches for the best angle, an interesting pattern of colors, and always waits patiently for the best light. Most importantly, a travel photographer must be open to feeling all of the sensations of the place and, if he is lucky, he successfully composes then captures one magical moment, one unique image that precisely transmits his deepest feelings of that place. Travel photography is thus a window into our ourselves, our own highly personal, travel vision. In this inspiring and educational presentation, native Argentinian photographer Ossian Lindholm teaches us the art (and craft) of creating magical landscape photographs as he takes us on an intimate visual journey of his favorite Argentinian places. Lindholm teaches us about saturating a photo with color while introducing us to a rainbow-hued mountain range in the Andes. We learn about how to best frame the full moon’s special light as it rises over a cactus forest or what shutter speed and lens to use when snapping soaring condors. We take a visual and sensory stroll through the world’s highest vineyard and learn how to compose water drops on grapes or what is the best aperture setting to creatively capture Las Salinas Grandes, a vast and brightly lit salt desert at more than 10,000 feet above sea level. Lindholm discusses the 40-year evolution of his photographic passion and artistic vision. Renowned as one of Argentina’s finest photographers, he is also an experienced photography teacher and an acclaimed nature documentary filmmaker who shares the very special light, angles, and colors of his very photogenic and pristine region. He shares some of his tricks, tips, and techniques for connecting, capturing, and creating stunning photographs, and takes us on an intimate photo journey of his most beloved landscapes. Finally, Lindholm elaborates on the crucial role of the travel photographer in conservation that drives his personal mission: “Para conservar, prima hay que conoscer.” To conserve, first you must know. This maxim and personal philosophy have always been threads throughout his life and work. You will walk away with a special understanding and appreciation of this unique and little-known part of the world and be moved and inspired by Lindholm’s passion for photography, filmmaking, and creating endearing images that poignantly communicate and conserve our special and symbiotic relationship to our precious world. This seminar is sponsored by Ciclismo Classico and Travel Vision Journeys, which specialize in using a bike as a way to physically explore and learn about a place. The mission of Travel Vision Journeys is to use the camera literally as a lens of learning and discovery. TravelVision Journeys are active photo vacations that invigorate and immerse guests into the nature, culture, and landscape of the most stunning places in the world. About: Ossian Lindholm Ossian Lindholm is a nature photographer from Tucuman, Argentina. Trained as an Agronomist, he turned his deep passion for nature to photography. In his work as a photographer, teacher, and documentary filmmaker, he is dedicated to capturing, conserving, and sharing the landscape, nature, and culture of Argentina in its most pristine state. Lindholm has published five books, 14 calendars, and he teaches photography throughout the year. Since 1998, he has been leading groups of photographers and naturalists on photographic journeys throughout his native Argentina. For the past four years, he hosted a popular weekly nature TV documentary called Travesia Fotograficas. By crafting powerful images, words, and music that touch the audience’s emotional core, he educates and inspires his Travesia audience to love and protect their environment. Lindholm has been a passionate photographer since he was a small boy. He pursued a career in agricultural engineering and developed a passion for biological sciences that remain a strong influence in his work. For many years he worked as a scientist but, in 1998, he dedicated himself to nature photography. He had a personal revelation that photography was not only a profession but a way to make a difference by delivering an important message about conservation and sustainability. Here was his calling—through photography, teaching, and filmmaking, he must show and teach his fellow Argentinians and the world that nature is sacred and our relationship to Mother Earth is a symbiotic one. This maxim and personal philosophy can be seen through all his work. As he evolved as a photographer, he clarified his mission in one sentence: Para Conservar, primero hay que Conocer... "To conserve, first you must know."

The dawn of a new era is upon us.  For more than 100 years, camera companies have been trying to squeeze the best specs into the smallest available formats.

Whether you are looking for a new camera or one to complement your existing system, Gabriel Biderman will help you wade through the latest crop of mirrorless cameras. With some companies offering up to five levels of mirrorless cameras, we will focus on the higher-end ones that Biderman feels can replace your DSLR—in most situations.
