Creating Dynamic Landscape Photographs

Join professional landscape photographer and author Tim Cooper for an information-packed lecture on landscape photography. This very popular photographic discipline requires practice, planning, and a solid grasp of the technical side of image making.

The Photo Landscape, 2013

Over the course of 2013, the photographic-technology landscape has certainly held its fair share of innovations, updates, new releases, and refinements, with manufacturers pushing to meet certain contemporary image-making goals as well as working to draft the blueprint of what to expect in subsequent years.

How I Got the Shot: Peter Cannon on 'Rays through the Mist'

"Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.” George Eastman.

Having been involved in professional photography for over 30 years, I've tested a wide range of equipment and used a variety of camera bodies to achieve the huge library of work that I presently have. I'm happy to share how I got this particular photo, and the story will probably surprise you as much as it did me.

The Moose Cruise: A Three-Hour Photographic Tour Around Manhattan

This B&H video is like a pleasant cruise down the Hudson River. On second thought, it is a pleasant cruise down the Hudson River (then up the East River and around Manhattan), with photographer Moose Peterson and more than 400 photographers, as they all enjoy a beautiful day capturing the sights of the city—from the water.

Cold-Weather Photography

Even though the leaves are down and your frost-laden lawn makes crunchy sounds when you cross it in the morning, that doesn’t mean it’s time to pack your cameras away until March or April; if you do, you’re going to miss some fine picture-taking opportunities.

Wide and Extreme Wide-Angle Lens Roundup

One of the broadest categories of lenses we sell at B&H is wide and extra-wide-angle lenses. As for defining the parameters of wide and ultra wide, the safest definition of a standard wide-angle lens would be a lens with an angle of view between 62° and 84°.

Filters for Landscape Photography

With the exception of the filters used for black-and-white photography (see the article Black & White Landscape Photography) the numbers of filters used for capturing color landscapes are few, mostly due to the fact that, in digital imaging, many white balance and filter effects can be addressed in camera.

Black-and-White Landscape Photography

Though I was raised and grazed on film I have no qualms admitting I haven’t shot a roll of the stuff since August 2001 (with a Nikon N90 and Fujifilm Astia in case you’re curious). I appreciate film, respect film and certainly miss the disciplined aspects of shooting film, but at the end of the day I’m perfectly happy with digital imaging, warts and all.
