2018 – The ‘Nifty Fifty’-May 19


This workshop takes place on Saturday May 19th and costs just $149 for this long day.  We’ll meet in Georgetown, MA and head out to Portsmouth, NH for the day through lunch and then return to Georgetown for an image review and discussion.  The number of attendees for this workshop is very limited!

It’s been affectionately called the ‘Nifty Fifty’ for many years.  It’s the standard 50mm lens you may or may not own (but should!).  It’s arguably one of the most popular focal lengths you’ll ever use (even if you’re using a normal range zoom lens).  The advantage of a 50mm prime lens is that you can usually get one with a wider open aperture than your zoom. Something like f1.4, f1.8 or f2 which all can help you take photos in lower light but also to isolate your subjects.

Why have a ‘Nifty Fifty’ photo workshop?!  Because it’s a Great way to help improve one’s compositional skills and creativity at the same time.  I will often times leave the house with one camera and just one prime lens.  Why? To improve my own photography and to force myself to be creative to get images I like.  Having just one lens will make you think more about what you shoot > and that’s a good thing! So, why not challenge your self and join me with just one lens for a day!  Oh, and for those folks that don’t like using tripods > they’re optional for this session!

We’ll have an image review session at the end of the day to see how we all did.  You’ll be surprised!

  • Exposure
  • Composition
  • Metering
