Course Overview

Photography is an art form that relies heavily on the creative and technical use of lenses. "Lenses at Length" is a comprehensive class designed for photographers of all levels who want to understand the most fundamental tool to controlling how your image comes out: your lens. We will cover what the terminology on lenses means, how lens design decisions affect the choices you have, how to match your purpose to the correct lens, and how to understand what features matter to you.

Topics Include:

  • Lens fundamentals, such as focal length, maximum aperture, perspective distortion, and focusing motors
  • Prime lenses, including a discussion on chromatic aberration, sharpness, barrel distortion, flaring and ghosting
  • Zoom lenses, with emphasis on convenience, framing, and atmospheric compression
  • Specialty lenses, including, macro, wide angle, and fisheye
  • Features in newer lenses, including aspherical lens elements, upgraded focusing motors, firmware updates, and de-clicked aperture rings.

Tuition: $34.00

This class will be recorded and available to attendees for up to 7 days
