Top 10 Events of the B&H Event Space for 2010

It’s that time of the year when everyone from music bloggers to movie critics are rattling off their top favorites of the year. This end-of-year phenomenon has inspired me to reflect on the last 12 months at the B&H Event Space, and to pick my own top ten events. There were far more than ten excellent events, but these really stood out from the rest. Hit the jump to see which ones made the cut.

One Photographer’s Strategy for Image Archiving (Part One of Two)

Every serious photographer has an archive of some form. Some of those archives become important libraries at the heart of our collective visual culture, holding significant imagery that historians utilize and the public enjoys. Others disappear into obscurity, and with them go potentially important images, never to be seen by the public. As photographers, we want our work to fall into the former category. Most photographers neglect image archiving to the point that most of their work will sadly end up in the latter category. 

Critiquing 101

The very best way to improve as a photographer does not involve any particular piece of gear or course of study, nor does it involve apprenticing yourself to a master photographer. Impoverishing yourself by working on nothing but photography as something of a photographic "monk" will not do it, either. While all of these things may improve your photography, the best way is much simpler, yet for many photographers it seems much harder.
