Lenses and Focal Length
Lecture no. 3 from the course: Fundamentals of Photography
Taught by Professor Joel Sartore | 27 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Hobby & Leisure Courses
According to Mr. Sartore, lenses are the most critical tools of photography. In this lecture, he takes you into the field and shows you different camera lenses in action. Among them: 70–200 mm (good for blurring out distracting backgrounds), rectilinear lenses (great for photographing things with minimal distortion), and wide-angle lenses (perfect for both landscapes and for shooting subjects in tight quarters).
