What Lens Should I Use?

Photography isn’t all about the camera – it is also about your lens choice.

Instructor Michael Miller is constantly being asked “What lens should I use?  While he says there is no one right answer to this question, it is dependent on what you are photographing and what perspective you want of the scene, subject or point of view.

A lens shapes the way for you to “see” the world through your viewfinder. The creative use of lenses gives your photographs their distinctive, expressive qualities.

There are many lens choices from a 8mm to a 1600mm and lens choice makes all the difference in the perspective, mood and feel of your photograph. Different lenses for different types of photography and perspective.

How do you know which one to use? This workshop will demonstrate what lenses can do and which ones to consider based on how you want your images perceived.

Cost is $45 for BAC members and $60 for nonmembers.
