I prefer Zooms

For pretty much all of January and February, maybe even longer, I pretty much exclusively used one Prime Lens in my Photography. I even kinda liked it. But after going back and using my Zooms again at the Oderteich last Saturday, I finally realized how much I actually limited myself by just using that Lens.… Continue reading I prefer Zooms

Using a Prime Lens.

For most of this Year, and even Parts of last December, I have been pretty much exclusively using my 22mm Pancake Lens as a Creative Challenge, but also because I wanted to pack light. After all this Time, I feel like I might be able to say something about using Prime Lenses. Spoiler Alert: It… Continue reading Using a Prime Lens.

Zooming with your Feet?

Usually, I prefer it to use Zoom Lenses in my Photography. The only Reason fo that is their Versatility. But lately, I have been using my 22mm Prime Lens pretty much exclusively. And I really like it. But that is not what this Post is about. There is one coming though. But first I feel… Continue reading Zooming with your Feet?

Kit Lenses.

On my Family Trip to Lübeck last Month, my old 18-55mm Kit Lens plain out refused to work. It was very dirty and I had not been using it in a long Time. Last Week, I then discovered that most of my absolute favourite Fotos were actually taken with that plasticky Kit Lens, and I… Continue reading Kit Lenses.

A very long Lens.

Back in 2015, when I got my first DSLR for Christmas, I also got a fully manual anubia 500mm Lens from my father. I never really liked that Lens. It is not really that good. That is mostly because it is so extremely long, fully manual and also quite dark, starting at ƒ/8.0. It is… Continue reading A very long Lens.

My tightest Lens.

As a Photographer, I do own several Lenses, covering all the Focal Lengths from 18mm to 250mm. And the largest bit of that Range is actually done by only one Lens. It is my Canon EF-S 55-250mm Lens. Back in 2016, I wanted to get a tighter Lens because my Kit Lens only goes from… Continue reading My tightest Lens.

Landscape Photography with a Portrait Lens.

I absolutely love Landscape Photography. It is awesome. I have used all kinds of Lenses for Landscape Photography. Mostly Wide-angle Zooms. Or Telephoto Lenses. But last week, I decided to shoot some Landscapes with my 50mm f/1.8, a classic Portrait Lens on APS-C. I have done that before, but lately, I feel inspired to write… Continue reading Landscape Photography with a Portrait Lens.

I love Wide Shots.

I love Photography, and lately, I also really love Hiking. And when I am Hiking, I prefer to pack light. So I usually bring only a few Lenses with me. Usually, I bring my Primes and a Zoom or two. Shot near Oberschulenberg. But lately, I mainly use my Ultra-wide 10-18mm Lens the most. I… Continue reading I love Wide Shots.

The Unholy Trinity.

When it comes to Lenses, a lot of Photographers speak of the Holy Trinity of Lenses. What that means is, that there are only three Lenses that you need to be able to do any kind of Photography. Usually, those Lenses are a 16-35mm, a 24-70mm and a 70-200mm. But those only really do the… Continue reading The Unholy Trinity.
