Back to photography lesson 3

Even though photography is an ART, besides knowing your DSLR camera (and, sometimes, besides knowing your compact one, or, even, your smartphone) you might need some technical know-how. This tutorial has no aim other than to help the beginners. For deeper learning, please consult the Internet.

LESSON 4: LENSES

Our first question when we are buying a lens is: fixed lens or zoom? Let’s see some differences between them.

Price

Generally, good zooms are more expensive than fixed lenses.

Reliability

A fixed lens is more reliable than a zoom as all its components are fixed.

Light (aperture)

Fixed lenses have better light abilities and, therefore, take better images.

Range of the angle of view

The range of a zoom is larger.

Size and weight

Zooms are bigger and heavier.

Versatility

With a couple of zooms, you can have a wide range of focal lengths.

Photo composition

Contrarily to the zoom, with a fixed lens you must go backward or forward to modify your composition (sometimes, you must change the lens). How many you need? Zooms, a couple. Fixed lenses, minimum three (but you can have 2 zooms and one fixed lens…).

A highly successful sales and leadership career working in a number of different and very competitive industries. Engaging with decision makers at all levels in business and government. Three decades employed by corporations, SME businesses in senior roles and almost twelve years operating as a freelance contractor has equipped me well for all aspects of business. Whether leading and mentoring sales teams, or in a direct sales role I enjoy the challenge to meet and exceed expectations. Making a real and tangible difference in either a team environment or as an individual is an important personal goal I have consistently achieved throughout my career. In all of my business and personal dealings over the years there is one issue that stands out above all others - communication. Excellent communication skills creates trust, helps with mutually beneficial outcomes and above all cements long lasting positive relationships. I strive everyday to communicate effectively with the people I encounter.
