Sometimes other photographers ask we, how I can make do with basically just a 50mm lens. I never really thought about it, but I'll try to come up with some kind of answer ...
Ok ... let's kick this off with som clarification. I do not only have a 50mm lens. I also have a 100mm macro and a 10-20mm wide-angle. And yes that's all.
But if I rummage through my lightroom collections the data is clear: of all my 70.000+ images, more than 50% of them are shot with my beloved 50mm lens.
And I will try to show you some variety in doing so ... remember, I sad try!
#1 Depth of Field and Bokeh
Right off the bat I think the number one reason why I use it so much is the Depth Of Field (aka. DOF)
When shooting portraits you can get the most fantastic DOF.
I should mention, that I have the Canon EF50mm f/1.4 USM lens.
