You've probably heard of the term ISO before. But do you know what it means? If someone told you that you need to raise your ISO settings to compensate for the diminished light, would you know what they're talking about? If you don't know, here is a quick guide, straight from the EDU Advantage Team.
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.
We recently had the pleasure of talking to John Maloof, the young man who stumbled upon the work of perhaps one of the greatest unknown street photographers of the 1950's. Maloof answered questions about Vivian Maier, the great responsibility he just inherited, and more.

Steve McCurry was given the task of shooting the last roll of Kodachrome. But what if it were you? What would you shoot with one of the dying legends of photography? Think carefully, because the anticipation of not knowing if you nailed the shot perfectly would be very intense. If you didn't get every exposure perfectly, you might be letting down your predecessors, and many others.
Let us know in the comments below what you would shoot.
Most people are familiar with instant film as a means to instantly capture fun and tangible photos with a vintage look to them. But did you ever brainstorm other ways to make good use of the tiny prints? Take a look at these three fresh ways to use them.
Polaroid was the first company to offer photographers instant gratification. While we mostly think about instant film prints that the company is famous for, the lesser known 20x24 Polaroid camera is something of a rare unknown beast of legend. I recently took a tour to view one right here in NYC at 20x24 Studios. For those of you not as familiar with the Polaroid line, the 20x24 studio camera is an old-school giant that shoots massive 20 inch by 24 inch exposures.
Insuring the longevity of a print is essential to an image-maker’s responsibility to the customer. Anything less can cause damage to a studio’s reputation. This is especially true of photographers who cover special events in people’s lives. It would be a sad situation if the wedding photos, which were expected to be handed down from generation to generation, begin to fade after just a few years.
