Returning for its fifth consecutive year, OPTIC 2019 was the best OPTIC yet! With our planet's environment changing at a rapid rate, the discussion was more poignant than ever. The four-day imaging event explored the inspiration, techniques, and equipment essential to capturing the great outdoors-with an emphasis on conservation. At B&H’s Optic 2019, photographer Lisa Langell talks about how and why we photograph, and she stresses that the most important part of your journey as a photographer is knowing the answer to the question, “Why do I photograph?” Langell reminds us that photography is not only transformative for the person taking the photo; a powerful image can have deep emotional impact on others, too. This is a great talk from a photographer who approaches her craft from psychological and technical perspectives.

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.

With a very personable demeanor and his beautiful photographs as a calling card, Ira Lippke introduces us to the important aspects of shooting a destination wedding. Noting the importance of developing a trusting relationship with the couple, he speaks about the “immersive nature” and intimacy of travelling with the wedding party and how that provides the opportunity for amazing photos. He also provides several very practical tips and notes on his gear choices, but also makes it clear that while quality lenses and sensors are important, a good photo must happen first in the mind of the photographer.
