Prime Lenses: How to Shoot with Prime Lenses

Prime Lenses: How to Shoot with Prime Lenses

Saturday 01 June
Digbeth - 10:30am - 2 Hours
Birmingham Photography Group
Martin Tierney
In this session, we will be learning How to shoot with Prime Lenses while exploring the subjects: people and city landscapes.

Prime lenses are for example 24mm / 35mm/ 50mm / 85mm.

In film and photography, a prime lens is a fixed focal length photographic lens, typically with a maximum aperture of / f1.2. to f2.8. Because of the way they are designed, prime lenses often have a higher quality look than a zoom lens. This is because the build of a prime lens is much simpler than that of a zoom lens. They use less glass, which means that less light is diffracted, which will make for sharper images overall.

It's about a 2hr drive from home, and with the help of Photopills, we could see that the moon would have set with the milkyway still visible at about 4am. So alarms were set for 1.30am, coffee was made and off we went. I use the intervalometer on my Canon 6D mark ii to shoot between 15-20 images of the sky. The lens I used was a Samyang 14mm, set

    May 10 the northern lights hit a G5 storm, a KP index of 9, the highest it will go, and the best storm we've seen in over 20 years. I drove my 10 year old son north to see them, this was a chance of a lifetime. I managed to get several amazing photos. Canon R6M2, RF10-20mm lens at 10mm, 30sec at f4, iso 1000, manual focusing. This was looking more north-west as most of the bright colours could be seen to the south, west and just north of us.
