50mm Go-To

Course Brief :

A 50mm lens once came "standard" with every 35mm SLR camera purchase.  Then this inconspicuous, low-light performer fell from "vogue," replaced by medium-telephoto, medium-aperture, variable zoom "kit" lenses.  Lost was the flexibility and control this simple and effective optical design had to offer.  These four online and interactive photography lessons, with practical hands-on assignments, will have you taking a second and enthusiastic look at what this compact powerhouse of a lens has to offer.  

The 50mm focal length has been the keystone of 35mm photography since the 1930s. Renowned master Henri Cartier-Bresson reportedly used just the "50" for everything from landscapes to portraiture. Fact is - even the cheapest of 50mm lenses for the 35mm camera proves optically superior to any of the current crop of consumer zooms. And from a creative perspective, this is the lens you should be pulling a lot more frequently from your camera bag - and this exciting online photography course taught by award-winning photographer, David Bathgate, will show you why and how.


Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Fully know the characteristics and capabilities of the versatile 50mm "standard" lens
  • Choose aperture and perspective to simulate mild wide-angle and tele-photo effects
  • Work comfortably and effectively at wide apertures in low light situations
  • Have confidence in carrying just one lens to "do it all"

  • Self-motivation to get the most from this instructor-interactive and assignment-focused online course
