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. Here are a couple of tips on how to do this.
Editor's Note: Many of the photos in this story are selections from the B&H Flickr Group. Hover over the photos to see who shot them.
A question we hear often at B&H is, "What lens should I buy?" We may follow up with, "What are you going to shoot with it?" The reason for this is because different lenses are meant for different shooting situations. Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a lens (or lenses) for your camera system.
We've previously asked you what you wanted to see in the Canon 5D Mk II successor and we also asked if you needed the 21MP output. Indeed, the Canon 5D Mk II is a camera that revolutionized the photography industry and despite the fact that it has its flaws, there are a number of reasons why you should spring for the current version vs waiting for the successor.

For those of you that have never visited the B&H SuperStore, you're in luck. Each week we'll feature photos of a different department or section in order for you to get to know us a bit better. This week, we are showing off the Film Counter located on the first floor. We sell many different types of film for different purposes, formats, etc. The film counter has shrunk over the years with the rise of digital photography; but we probably still sell as much film as any other store out there.
The other day, Ziv Gillat, the creator of the Eye-Fi card, stopped by the B&H Executive Offices to give us a demo of the new Eye-Fi direct feature that allows users to shoot images on their camera and upload them straight to their phone. Take a look at the video after the jump and please share your thoughts with us on what you think of being able to potentially leave your USB cable.
For years, photos have been used to tell stories in photojournalism and documentary-type photography. Newspaper and magazine editors have sometimes told their staff that they can only accept one image for a story. So there has to be one image that gets it all right. Here are a few different and important features that every photo essay should have.
