In this 90 minute free Photoville seminar, we’ll introduce you to the wonderful world of glass. Get the skinny on focal lengths, the differences between zooms and primes, and creatively controlling depth of field. We’ll discuss lenses from super-wide angle to telephoto, what’s up with that crop factor, how to achieve that cinematic background blur (bokeh), and which lenses provide the most bang for the buck. You’ll also get tips on what to look for when buying a new and used lens, so you can upgrade with confidence.
