50mm Lens Meetup

50mm Lens Meetup

Saturday 14 October
Rivertown - Warehouse District - 11am - 2 Hours
The 50mm lens is one of the flexible and useful lenses in any photographer’s gear bag. It is neither a wide-angle or telephoto lens, but allows the camera to see on the same scale as your eye. As such, it can be used for a variety of styles, from landscape and street photography to portrait and product photography. In this meetup, we’ll review the basic camera settings. We’ll then cover some of the advantages of shooting with a prime lens, and some basic techniques to using the 50mm lens. As always, there will be ample opportunities for you to put your new knowledge into practice.

    Very informative! Sean made sure everyone was getting the attention they needed.

    Very nice and informative day. Good information that I will use in the future.
    It was good walked away learning a few things I didn't know. Also, it was great because it was just me and Sean, so had one on one attention for the three hours. I loved that Sean made me figure out what the correct settings needed to be for the pic that was being taken. It was a great way to spend the day.
    I really glad I attended the event. Sean, the instructor, did a great job. The weather was awful but he helped us refocus and work on a couple different 201cassignments 201c during the session. I will definitely plan to attend more meet up events with Sean. Thank you!

    It was ok
    Sean arrived right on time. He was patient and extremely helpful. He answered all of my questions and and took time to explain things I didn't quite understand. I learned some techniques that were new to me and I'm looking forward to practicing them. I had a great time and would be glad to attend another session.
    Great location for the event. I wanted to get back in the rhythm of street photography. Kanajah was very helpful with her advice for taking photos. She had some great suggestions for other place to take photos in the Detroit area

    This photo is from a evening riding around downtown Detroit. I was walking around the Milliken state park lighthouse as the sun was setting. I noticed the two trees perfectly framing the lighthouse, I waited about ten minutes for the sun to just dip below the horizon so I could get the soft orange haze you see in the photo!

    Title or Location: Kensington Metro Park Near the Nature Center
    I was resting on a bench at Kensington near the nature center waiting for golden hour, when this sand crane, completely comfortable around humans, decided to groom himself nearby. I had my long lens mounted, trying to photograph another bird when this scene presented itself to me. I like the framing of the log in front slightly out of focus and the vegetation floating behind him, also slightly out of focus. At f/5.6, I was able to keep most of the bird in focus while separating him from the r

    I live near the water. As I worked in my garden, this eagle landed near the water's edge. It stayed long enough for me to grab my good old Cannon Rebel and I was able to capture several images with my 200mm lens. The bird seemed to have no fear of me. I moved slowly peacefully towards it and I ended up about 25' away. I did not want to scare it, so I only captured a few images. When I had finished, the bird remained here for quite some time. It was an amazing experience. I did crop the image to

    Title or Location: Wilcox Lake near downtown Plymouth and Hines Drive
    I had just replaced my Leica SL2 and my 24-90 and 90-280mm lens after a bus crash in Iceland when the bus was submerged and all gear was lost. I was taking the new gear out on the first day looking for interesting subjects on Hines Drive. Nothing really appealed to me. Heading home, I noticed the most breathtaking sunset over the lake. I pulled over and mounted the 24-90 lens on my SL2 and walked as close as I could to the lake. I noticed four ducks swimming to the edge of the dam as if to
