I’m a Canon user, but hardly ever use the standard kit lens that comes with the camera. Every photography professional knows kit lenses are just OK. And boring.
Instead, my personal two favourite lenses (for now) for photo shoots are:
- 50 mm prime lens from Canon, perfect for portraits because the shallowness really pulls focus on my subject, and
- 70 mm lens from Sigma, which captures a much sharper image than the prime, allows for me to be further away from my subject and still offers a good 4.0 aperture.
Knowing how to adjust your camera for different lighting conditions, environments and shutter speeds gives me more control over my photography. But investing in lenses can make a world of difference, makes your shots look incredible- and keeps shooting fun!
I have my eye on a couple more… stay tuned for more toys!
