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.

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.
