Great Yarmouth strictly 50 night

New for 2019 we have a fun way of learning.

One lens in the camera bag and of to the beach we go, you might want your jacket though

The strictly 50 night is going to help you with thinking about you fundamentals with image making.

With a fixed focal range of 50mm you with have plenty of scope for playing with depth of field and having to work on your composition.


What lens should you use.

For the day, you only bring the one lens with you. The lens will be 50mm or 50mm equivalent.

With it being stated that 50mm is the lens that is closest to the human field of view. The purpose of this is that when you see something with your own eye, you then have the fun task of trying to capture it within the camera, it is not as easy as it sounds, but it is fun.

If you are using a Micro 4/3rd lens you will want to use a 25mm lens.

If you are using what is known as a crop sensor camera or APS-C the lens you would want is a 35mm.

If you are using a full frame camera you will want to use a 50mm lens.
