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.

Documentary photography is an exercise in the art of observation: paying attention to the spontaneous theater of the streets and capturing moments that tell stories. In this presentation from B&H’s 2017 Optic Conference, Steve Simon shares the wisdom he has gleaned from a lifetime of wandering the streets and urban spaces with his camera. Using examples from his own career, as well as the work of other photographers, Simon elaborates on his shooting philosophy, while discussing gear choices and shooting techniques to help you raise your game. Featured among the advice he shares are ways to improve your response time, tips for approaching strangers to make street portraits, as well as options for maximizing image sharpness and nailing the shot. As Simon points out, a photographic style is not something you create, it’s something that’s revealed in the volume of pictures you make over time. During this lecture, he offers you the encouragement to try new things by getting out of your comfort zone, inspiring you to capture lyrical, poetic and decisive moments that communicate the energy around you.

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.
