Landscape photography is always about the light. During his lecture for B&H’s 2017 Optic conference, Sigma Pro Roman Kurywczak offers this statement as the number one tenet for capturing magical landscapes. And, as you’ll see from his photos, the hour before and after sunrise and sunset are key. Light changes all the time, and ideal conditions don’t last long. By the time you see it, the opportunity to capture the moment is over. Join Kurywczak on this inspirational journey, showcasing images from some of the most beautiful places on earth—from the coast of Iceland to the deserts of the American Southwest. Along the way, he discusses tips, settings, and techniques, as well as the gear you’ll need to be able to capture stunning images of your own.

In the following video, Allan Weitz presents a handful of unique options for macro photography that deviate from the common and traditional macro lens. Beginning with the Canon MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5x Macro Photo Lens, Weitz delivers an overview of this high-magnification optic that permits focusing on subjects from 1:1 to 5:1 reproduction ratios. Second up is a profile of the Nikon PC-E Micro NIKKOR 45mm and Nikon PC-E Micro Nikkor 85mm tilt-shift lenses, which are unique in that they offer perspective control as well as a 1:2 magnification ratio. Following these dedicated options, the video goes on to survey extension bellows, extension tubes, close-up filters, and reversing rings as other viable options for macro shooting.
