Lenses make a great impact when it comes to Photography. Usually, the wedding photographer uses four types of lenses, let’s see some highlighting features in them.
Types of Lenses:
• Wide-Angle Zoom
• Wide-to-Telephoto Zoom
• Image-Stabilized Telephoto Zoom
• Prime/Portrait Lenses
The wide-angle zoom lens is the most common type of lens which each photographer should have. Wide-angle zoom is typically 17mm to 35mm in length with a fixed aperture of f/2.8.
Wide-angle zoom lens provides a large depth of field, making it simple to have foreground and background in focus.
Wide to telephoto zoom lens are the ones which cover somewhere around the 20-70mm focal length range with an aperture of f/2.8. Wide to telephoto zoom lets you get wide enough to take a group photograph and close enough to capture facial emotions in your candid shots or a three-quarter portrait of a couple without the undesirable effects of wide-angle perspective distortion.
Image-Stabilized Telephoto Zoom:
70-200mm focal length is an important range for the wedding and other ceremony photos. It allows you to give your subjects more space in situations where you don’t want to get in the way. Image-Stabilized Telephoto Zoom is 200mm long, which is enough to be able to take 3/4 length images easily and precisely.
Prime Lens is the one with the fixed focal lengths. The prime lens is opposite to the zooming lenses, which has variable focal lengths from 24-70mm or 17-55mm. Prime lenses have the better optical quality than the zoom photography lenses. It usually comes with the wider maximum apertures such as f/2.8 or f/1.8.
As a Photographer, When you make a well-informed choice on the right photography lenses to use, it will definitely elevate your wedding photography to a more professional level.
