50mm Lens Meetup

50mm Lens Meetup

Saturday 03 June
University of Kentucky - 10am - 2 Hours
Lexington Photography Group
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.

Come along to our photo sessions to dust off your camera and get snap-happy with a professional photography instructor.

Brush up on your camera skills and learn new photography techniques whilst on a photo walk class with other local keen photographers!

We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations in Lexington.

  • New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month. And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next on is!

  • Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

  • What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

    The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

    Join the Lexington Photography Group on Facebook to share your photos after the session.

    Steven has been taking pictures for nearly 5 decades. He started taking pictures with a film camera made by Kodak, and after mowing what seemed like thousands of yards he saved enough money to purchase his first Nikon. He served on his high schools year yearbook staff as a photographer.
    His companion throughout his life has been a camera.

    He has traveled to numerous countries, and lived in several more. In 2005 after meeting a Ukrainian girl at University of Kentucky, he ended the semester and packed his bags and headed overseas to explore and visit someplace new.

    After Ukraine, he traveled to Thailand and lived there for 3 years. He loves traveling and meeting new people and cultures - it is one of life's greatest gifts.
