Lens choice is one of the most important aesthetic decisions that we make as photographers. There are two stages in lens selection. The first is deciding which lens (or lenses) to buy. With over 60 current Canon lenses to chose from (plus those made by third party manufacturers) that can be confusing enough.
The second is getting the best out of the lenses that you own. As you get to know your lenses, and understand the effect of focal length and aperture on the aesthetics of the photo, you will learn how to use them to create dramatic, eye-catching images.
In Understanding Lenses: Part I I looked at wide-angle and kit lenses. Understanding Lenses: Part II is the follow up and explores Canon’s range of normal, short telephoto and super telephoto lenses.
The eBook is split into two sections. The first looks at the artistic side of using normal and telephoto lenses. It’s a guide to using them to help you create beautiful portraits, landscape, travel and close-up images.
The second part is a buying guide. It gives you an overview of Canon’s current lens range, and explains the differences between the various models. Whether your budget is $100 or $1,000 there is a Canon lens for you – and this section helps you make wise buying decisions and understand the technology behind the terms that Canon uses to describe its lenses.
My interest in photography began when my parents bought me a Ricoh KR-10m camera over 20 years ago. Since that day I progressed from colour negative to slide and black and white film and finally to digital, when I bought my first digital SLR, an EOS 350D, in 2006. During that time I’ve taken photos in over 60 countries, studied for a degree in photography and worked as Technical Editor for EOS magazine. Now I’m a freelance writer and I make a living writing about photography. In recent years I’ve lived in the UK, China and New Zealand, which is now my home. My clients include EOS magazine, Craft & Vision and Peachpit Press. I also carry out technical editing on forthcoming photography books, and design photography courses for Foto-Classes.
