Chances are that you’re a visual learner, since you have an interest in photography, so I’ll make this easy for you.
There really are more than 5 compelling reasons to get a 50 mm lens for your camera, but I thought I’d keep it simple for today’s illustration.
Reason 1 – 5
That’s right… reasons 1 – 5 are right there showing the amazing texture and detail that a 50 mm lens can capture. I didn’t know what I was missing before I got this lens and now I wouldn’t give it up for anything. Funny thing is that it’s the least expensive of all my lenses!
I was thrilled to hear that the incredibly talented music photographer Zack Arias even recommends the 50 mm lens as a staple in every photographer’s camera bag.
So what are you waiting for? It’s time to try something new… and it won’t break the bank. You can get a 50 mm Canon lens for just over $100. That’s a far cry from the 85 mm f/1.2 at $1825! I even added the 50mm lens to my OpenSky shop just for you and I’ve got a 10% off coupon which will actually make it less than $100… just enter coupon code: TASRA10. Enjoy and happy shooting!
Today’s images: Love the texture on my new Shootsac! Couldn’t resist capturing it for today’s Theme Thursday of TEXTURE. Shot with 50 mm lens, processed with Kubota actions Popsickle and Daily Multi Vitamin. Created collage in Photoshop.
