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 this quick tutorial, wedding photographer Moshe Zusman talks about how he handles lighting with different tools and light shapers. He suggests using off-camera flash for more creativity; you can start with speed lights, and then advance to studio systems with light-shaping tools such as softboxes, grid diffusers, and umbrellas. For more flexibility, you can use wireless triggering systems to fire your camera and flash. Zusman likes grid diffusers on a softbox because the light is more angular and he has more control; it’s easier to balance exposures with off-camera lighting—and you get better skin tones. The tutorial also provides advice about when to use on-camera flash (for the processional only, not during the ceremony), building a studio-lighting setup on the site (key and fill, rim lights, umbrellas, softboxes to control light, and more), making wedding party portraits, and the idea of creating “first look” portraits of the bride and groom so you won’t have to squeeze their portrait session into a 15-minute cocktail hour.

Join renowned wedding photographer Moshe Zusman as he explains his approach and shares some of his techniques for posing brides, grooms, and wedding parties. If you want your wedding portraits to possess pizzazz, character, elegance, and a natural feel, Zusman suggests that you treat each image as though it were part of a high-fashion shoot. You can achieve the best images by posing your subjects assertively—and you can imprint ideas in your consciousness by posing your friends, spouses, or relatives in practice. Plan in advance, scout locations, use natural light whenever possible, consider what your backgrounds look like, and let your subjects know that you wish to create a “GQ” vibe in their portraits, to set the mood and bring out their best attitudes. Zusman says the best photos come when you avoid having the bride, groom, and wedding party members stand up stick-straight; he explains how to make them look beautiful, fluid, and interactive. Zusman also discusses how groups will be affected by the environment in which you are photographing them, and then how you can use that space to craft luminous, attractive group portraits.
