Lighting is easily the most important aspect of photography. You could even go as far as saying that lighting is photography: It is even in the word itself: "photography" is Greek for "light drawing," or "drawing with light." Without light, you cannot take photos. It is perfectly possible to take amazing photographs with a very simple camera—as long as the lighting is good. The opposite holds, as well: If you are taking photos in a situation where the lighting is truly appalling, having the fanciest, most expensive camera in the world isn’t going to help you capture the photographs you want. Join Bob Davis as he explores light and the combination of available light and Speedlites. Through this discovery of light you will see the power and possibilities of using all the light available to you, creating quality anywhere, anytime.

Landscape photography entails the capture of light, color, shape, texture, and emotion to convey your opinion about the natural world. While technical proficiency is important, it is the meaning and vision that you impart to an image that often makes the difference between success and failure. Each of us has a unique and personal vision to express, and Robert Rodriguez Jr believes this is the key to developing—and significantly improving—your photography. In this presentation, Rodriguez discusses how these ideas form the basis of his landscape photography, and how the "art and craft" combine to achieve what is most important, a meaningful image. He talks about not only the basic hows of landscape photography, but more importantly, the whys that can help you begin to "make" meaningful images instead of just hoping for good results. Rodriguez uses real-world examples and his own experiences as a landscape photographer throughout the lecture, and there is a Q+A period as well.

Here's a video aimed directly at so many of today's inexperienced digital SLR owners—you've owned a nice camera for while and want to move past totally automatic, green-zone shooting. But how do you make the move?  Even a study of shutter speeds and apertures alone doesn’t necessarily connect all the dots. How do you make intelligent and thoughtful choices in camera settings? In this video, Canon USA’s Rudy Winston gives you guidance to do exactly that. This is more than just understanding what a shutter speed is. Winston shows you how to take that preliminary understanding and translate it into the thought process an experienced photographer might use to get the right camera settings and the results they're hoping for. Using excellent sample images and clear on-screen graphics, this B&H Event Space video will give you the information and visual "push" you may need to move past the full auto green shooting mode, and begin to explore more creative photography with your camera.
