Photo Gallery: Walking with the Prime

Learning photography is learning to see differently, and then becoming comfortable with your new eyes.

One challenge I like to give people who are just learning photography is to “hang out with a prime”. Whether they have a fixed 50mm or 85mm lens doesn’t matter to me, they can easily just stay at any focal length on a zoom lens they have, and experiment. Being able to identify and become familiar with how your world looks at each focal length is a priceless lesson for any photographer, especially the beginner. I often bring out my small 85mm 1.8 and keep it in the truck…you never know what you might see…
