Moving from Stills to Video: Audio, Audio, Audio

Audio is extremely important. Photographers haven’t really had to worry about this, but it is something that can make or break your videos. Watch some of your favorite movies and pay close attention to the sound—you will probably pick up some audio cues or effects that amplify the scene or action. If recorded poorly, audio can make something completely unwatchable. Have you ever opened a video online to crackling and noise and decided that it just wasn’t worth enduring? Clarity in audio is one of the most important things for keeping your audience immersed in the world of a film.

A Guide to Lenses for Landscape Photography

A set of lenses is to a photographer as an arsenal of paintbrushes is to a painter; lenses let photographers change the way a location is portrayed. They afford wide-angle views, tight close-ups, the ability to isolate subjects, and the option to keep everything in a scene in or out of focus. Especially in regard to landscape photography, lenses are one of the few means with which you can really impart personal vision into an image, compared to studio or portrait photography, which gives you the extra advantage of being able to adjust the subject, as well, to suit your intentions.

Top Memory Cards for Photo and Video Recording

It’s safe to say that in today’s predominantly digital world, memory cards have overtaken film as the primary recording media for consumer and professional photo and video use.

Choosing the Right Rugged Storage Drive for Active Lifestyles

External storage drives come in many forms. From SSDs and HDDs, you can have ample storage space or lightning–fast access to files. For compatibility with your systems, B&H carries portable drives that sport a variety of interfaces, such as FireWire, USB, or Thunderbolt. Of the two drive types, hard drives are more susceptible to failures since they retrieve data with a spinning platter–and–head design. Excess vibrations or drops can cause irreparable data loss, when the read-and-write head makes contact with the platter and scratches the magnetic data-storage surface.

Using Vello AF Extension Tubes for Close-Ups of Azaleas

Flowers are like sunsets, in that if you can compose and expose the frame properly, it’s pretty much a slam-dunk that you’re going to be walking away with good, if not very good, photographs.

Not long ago, my wife brought home a basket of white azaleas. Although I’ve seen azaleas umpteen times in the past, something caught my eye this time around. Maybe it was the late afternoon light, maybe the subtle variations of yellowish white, the soft curls of the flowers’ edges, or any combination of the above. All I knew was that I wanted to photograph them.
