What a lens can do

UBC box ad prouf of...


When you know how to use your camera lenses the possibilities for your photography really start to take off.

You'll be able to choose different looks for your images, just by knowing which camera lenses to use for the shot you're taking because different focal Lents of lens give your photos a different look.

In this video I'll show you a very simple example of how a minor change in zoom can completely alter how an image looks. When you change your zoom you're actually altering what's called the focal length of the lens and focal length changes three things about the way the camera sees the world.

By moving yourself and changing the zoom setting you can begin to affect the environment you're photographing. So your camera's lens is both a technical tool AND a creative one too. Probably the most overlooked creative tool of all in my opinion.
