One camera / one lens – photography camera skills training in London



I was in London today running a 1-2-1 camera skills training session and decided out of the blue to stick to one camera with a 50mm lens working at f1.8 to 3.5, but mostly at 1.8. Do you remember when film SLRs used to come supplied with a 50mm lens? It’s probably one of the most over looked fixed lenses in my camera bag but I used it at a couple of weddings recently and had forgotten what a great lens it is. You have to get used to using your feet again to “zoom” in and out but that’s why there’s something cinematic about it – a fixed frame like an old super 8 camera. A shot a few frames for fun which I’ve included here. Hazy sunshine on a crisp November day.
