Online: Beyond the Basics- Lenses: Choosing the Right Glass
May 19, 11:00 am - 12:15 pm
One event on May 19, 2020 at 11:00 am
In response to COVID-19 and recommendations by the CDC of social distancing, Hunt’s Photo Education is presenting our new series of online classes! (Hey! We wanted to do it anyway, this just sped up the process!) These courses will be shorter (about 1 hour), online versions of many classes that we currently offer, plus a few new ones, and include Q&A at the end.
Below the course description (but before registration) will be a short explanation on how the class will run.
There are dozens of decisions to make before purchasing a lens or choosing one to add to your wishlist. Should you use a prime or zoom? Do you need a fast aperture? Why are some lenses so much more expensive? And why are some so heavy? There are even more basic questions worth addressing: What does each lens do? And there are some more complicated: Why would I want a 105mm lens vs. an 85mm lens for portraits? Join Hunt’s Photo Education as we walk you through all the things you should consider before purchasing a new lens.
Understanding more about cameras and lenses is a necessity to improving your flexibility when photographing in a variety of situations. This course is designed to help you feel more comfortable about what lenses should be used in different situations. It is recommended as a follow-up to our Beginner Photography course.
Registering and what is needed
After you register for this class, you will receive a confirmation email that you have signed up. About 24 hours prior to the class time, we will send out an email with the weblink for you to follow as well as information on how to access the class online. (It’s pretty easy, but we’ll walk you through it in a quick online video!)
Layout of the class
The class will begin promptly at the time listed. The majority of the class–roughly 1 hour– will be a presentation on the topic, followed by a short Q&A. During the class, you are welcome to type in questions in the Chat box if you have specific questions as they are asked. We will do our best to answer those questions, but if not, feel free to ask them at the end.
Please read Hunt’s Terms & Conditions before signing up.
