You may think your camera is important, but really, it's your lens that forms the image. Your lens affects your angle of view (how much of what you see you can fit into the photo), depth of field (how much of the image is in focus), perspective (how near and far relate to each other), color (yes, different lenses render colors differently), contrast (how dark are the dark parts, how light are the light parts, and is there detail in both), and sharpness (there is, after all, truth in the details). Here's what you'll learn in this class:
• when you should use a wide angle lens
• when you should use a telephoto lens
• when are prime lenses better than zoom lenses
• why the most expensive lens isn't necessarily the best
Fun facts and a hands-on demonstration of their application. Bring your camera ready to shoot, with fully charged battery and empty memory card.
