If you have been around DSLR photography for any length of time you will have heard that the glass (lenses) in front of the camera is as vital, if not more vital, than the camera itself. It\’s surely true.
After agonizing over the choice about which digital camera you will settle on, the choice of a lens or camera lenses for that camera is equally as significant. And that is not an easy choice, either. Every new photographer comes to the realization that choosing a lens is a time for self control and patience. There\’s no place for impulsive behavior here. You have to match up your needs with what is available, and, if you have the cash on hand, you make the purchase.
Choosing The Correct Camera Lenses There is some great news with regards to making a camera lens purchase. Many camera lenses might fit your requirements for more than one kind of photography. Your first lens purchase might be one of those lenses which satisfies many kind of photography. Usually, folks get a multi-focal length, or zoom, lens as their very first lens. That one lens, if well planned, could be a general, all-purpose lens for every day photos, but it may also be an excellent portrait lens, a medium telephoto lens for taking photos from a distance, and a normal lens.
A lens like a zoom lens of 18-105mm (or somewhere in that range) is only the type of lens that may fill numerous photography needs. Take your time selecting that first dslr lens because it\’s an important one. As your photography experiences develop, you probably be choosing how you want to go as a major focus in the special kind of photography you wish to concentrate on. This decision will affect the lenses you\’ll need to add to your kit.
For example, if you desire to specialize in \”people photography,\” you can pin down your lens options to include a medium telephoto lens, and that choice will vary greatly from that of somebody else who wishes to specialize in landscape photography, because their choice would probably be a wide angle lens that would be great for their particular kind of photos.
Specialty Camera Lenses A macro lens, while ideal for close up photography, is among those lenses that could be used for more than one kind of photography. Many folks do not realize that macro lenses are excellent portrait lenses and medium telephoto lenses. One great macro lens can do the job of numerous lenses, and do it well. You may also need to add a \”normal lens\” to your photography kit.
While 50 mm is not technically \”normal\” for every camera, it\’s a great choice for nearly all photographer because there are so many things you may do with that aperture and focal length. The wide aperture of nearly all 50mm lenses is fairly wide, therefore it will offer you the advantage of being able to shoot in low light that many of the zoom lenses (especially the less expensive ones) don\’t have. Moreover, 50 mm lenses are good for portraits and street photography and also doing a fairly good job with all but the most demanding of close-up photos.
Finding lenses should not be an impulsive decision. Each lens should be chosen with much thought and consideration as to the impact it\’ll have on your aim as a photographer.
