Before you go out with your camera, do you think about what it is that you’re planning to photograph? For Fujifilm X-photographer Ruddy Roye, this starts with the lens he selects, based on his understanding of the subject matter in his frame. In this presentation for B&H’s 2017 Optic conference, Roye discusses his framing and lens choices for a series black-and-white portraits that he shot on assignment in Atlanta, Georgia. Roye’s go-to lens for portraits and street photography is the Fujifilm 23 mm f/2, a wide-angle 35mm equivalent lens that lets every one of his images communicate the powerful stories of both his subject and the environment they inhabit. After watching this video, you’ll have a better appreciation for how to select the right lenses and other photographic tools for success in your own work.

Each day a billion new images are made, yet few will stand the test of time. In this presentation for B&H’s 2017 Optic Conference, renowned photographer Sam Abell ponders the question, “What makes a lasting photograph?” through image sequences that illustrate the lessons he has learned over the course of his long and distinguished career. Among the wisdom Abell shares is some formative advice he received from his father at the age of 15: Compose the picture and wait. Over the course of this lecture, Abell demonstrates how photographs are built by the decisions the photographer makes. His revealing insights include: bad weather makes good pictures; keep a low angle and look for strong structure; compose and then recompose to master the details; among many other tips. This is not a “greatest hits” slide show, but rather a step-by-step examination of how to achieve lasting images through the careful application of basic photo technique and critical vision. After watching, you will have a new appreciation for the way in which you see the world.
