Lenses 101: Shooting with Primes

In this class, we will discover how to shoot with primes. Forget zooming in, how do we pick and choose a prime specific to an image? How do we know which to choose for a shoot? Which one do we start with? What are the benefits and drawbacks when compared to zooms?

These are the guiding questions for this class and for your approach to shooting with primes. We will learn abut what a prime lens is and how to use it to take great photos. This knowledge will further your photographer and also allow you to be more confident on shoots. 

Be creative, daring and take great photos!

I enjoyed the instructor's down to earth feel. A prime lens has been on my purchase list for some time. I'm ready to make my move. I will get a nifty fifty f/1.4.
