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.

In this B&H Event Space video, Matt Kloskowski provides essential tips and techniques to help you process, print, and display your images in the best way possible. As he explains: Not all photos are created equal. Considering what you want to do with a photo should begin during the shoot itself. Follow along as he discusses points to consider while you are shooting, post-processing tips to make your files look great, the value of using printer profiles and soft proofing, and which papers will show off your prints to best effect. He also sheds light on the stuff they don’t tell you about workflow, including those sometimes-quirky printer settings to help you make the prints you envisioned at the original moment of capture. After watching, you’ll have a newfound enthusiasm for experiencing your photographs on paper, instead of on-screen, as well as the confidence that making beautiful prints is easier than you may have thought.

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.
