This teaching presentation will take you back to one of the basics needed for photography- Lenses. Which lens is best to achieve that optimal image that you see in your head when out shooting? You probably have many lens questions- such as- what does Focal Length mean; what are-Field of View and Perspective and how do I use them to take interesting photos; what is the difference between Micro Four Thirds, APS-C, and Full Frame cameras and lenses and why would I pick one over the other; my friend told me I need -fast glass-what does that mean and do I really need it; why do lenses cost so much money; and do I need primes or zooms-fixed aperture or variable-camera maker or third party.
While it is true that the photographer makes the photo not the equipment, having the right lenses and knowing how to use them is an essential part of being a photographer. Our speaker will provide answers to all your lens questions, even if he has to make some of them up on the spot. The presentation will go over the basic characteristics of lenses and provide pointers on selecting the best ‘kit’ that fits within your photography budget.
