The 50mm lens is one of the flexible and useful lenses in any photographer’s gear bag. It is neither a wide-angle or telephoto lens, but allows the camera to see on the same scale as your eye. As such, it can be used for a variety of styles, from landscape and street photography to portrait and product photography. In this meetup, we’ll review the basic camera settings. We’ll then cover some of the advantages of shooting with a prime lens, and some basic techniques to using the 50mm lens. As always, there will be ample opportunities for you to put your new knowledge into practice.

I certainly won?t forget it.

    Title or Location: Cricket St Thomas, Somerset
    This was taken on a recent holiday to Somerset sitting on the patio that's part of our room, I was able to hear birds but wasn't able to see where (I'm currently on crutches so exploring was a limited option). As I was sitting just fiddling with some settings learning my new camera this small bird, some sort of a tit, was jumping around the bushes, i saw there was a coconut shell which he was interested in, however I wasn't able to get a good shot due to the angle of both the bird and me.

    Photo was taken in August of 2023 near the San Juan Islands north west of Seattle. We were following a family of Orca who we believe were teaching their young how to hunt. This photo was of an orca in pursuit of a porpoise. I actually have two other photos of the live pursuit with the orca tracking down and catching the porpoise. I would be happy to provide those as well if you?d like.
