Shooting with the Nifty 50: AdoramaTV

Digital Photography 1 on 1

Adorama TV presents: An introduction to the 50mm lens, and why it's so popular.

Many of the photographers Mark Wallace has interviewed in our "How'd They Do That?" series use the 50mm lens  to get a certain kind of look. This look has a shallow depth of field and is typically overexposed to really blow out the detail in the background. Why is this focal length so popular among professional photographers? Let's find out as Mark uses the lens to photograph a model, on both full frame and cropped sensor cameras. To see Mark's results with each of the different cameras, visit the AdoramaTV flickr page.
