Good street photography is able to capture fleeting moments in the streets and summarize the entire experience in one photo. Part of it is also accepting that not every photo you shoot will be breathtaking. But before you even think about any of this, you'll need to get rid of your fear of shooting, which many people have.

Photography with a 35mm camera used to be a relatively simple affair. Camera bodies seemed as steadfast and unchanging as your grandma's hairstyle, and there seemed little reason or need to constantly upgrade your equipment. Sure, there was always the latest and greatest camera innovation, but there wasn’t always a 'need' to change. Film choice had more of an impact, in my opinion, than did your actual camera equipment. One's personal artistic vision was more important than the actual camera used. Today, although these general tenets of photography and equipment still exist, gear does play an ever-increasing role of importance in the final output.

One eye in the viewfinder, one hand cupping the lens, breathe in and at the top of the breath release the shutter. It's a mantra that was taught to me when I first started shooting.

Remember the very first bread-and-butter lens that you bought or received? Joining it to your camera, and seeing some of the first photos from that union, most likely made your eyes light up with joy. Remember when you took it out of the box for the first time, and realized that you and that lens just bonded? Perhaps you loved the feel of it in your hands, or how the different rings on it turned. That's also probably the moment that you told yourself, "I really got my money's worth." Tell us about your baby in the comments below, and visit our used store to see if it's still available.

Help fight obesity in America by putting down that camera, please!

When the three scientists largely responsible for inventing digital photography and fiber optic transmission received the 2009 Nobel Prize for Physics, they might have considered the mess they’ve created on photo-sharing sites and in recipients' email boxes. I speak of the scourge of food photos. It seems like every other photo I’m emailed are close-ups of what people consumed during their vacations.

Like most photographers, I have a love-hate relationship with the tools I use. I am as captivated as the next photographer by the promise of the newest cameras, yet I am loath to give up old strategies that have served me so well. As a photographer, I depend on my cameras to make the pictures I want to make. As a professional, I depend on that same gear to earn my living.

Maybe you’ve seen these words floating around the B&H website recently: “The latest & greatest at B&H” .

Perhaps already set on drooling over the pro cams or perusing the consumer camcorders you passed it by. Whatever the case may be I thought I’d highlight this NEW! addition to our website.
