Photography

Well I am trying to improve my photography.

Went on a Birds of Prey day course in November as my birthday present from a friend and she came too. We enjoyed it so much that I have booked us on a Big Cats Day in April.
Christmas and birthday present for my friend.
I have an e-mail today from the tutor and he mentions a wide angle lens...and that is what I have been thinking about for ages.

Landscapes...whole body action shots of Big Cats....practise for Southern Africa.

So I shall be getting a Canon lens soon.Got to check out which one.

Lens is in the air or should that be lens are in the air?

"Lens is in the air or should that be lens are in the air?"

I think you'll find that it's either:

Lens (singlular) IS in the air
OR
Lenses (plural) ARE in the air

But then I could be wrong!

What sort of lens are you looking for?

Hi Tricia

Wide angle for my canon altho at this rate I might have to have another camera body as well(!) as all this fiddling with different lens are/is a fath!

28-70 or similar says my Tutor...the Big Cats one!
But I shall have a look at Pats tonight before we do the wine tasting game my neice gave me for Christmas!

28 is NOT wide on your canon

with the 1.6 crop factor 28-70 is equiv to 44-112. T had a 28-80 and she was amazed how narrow it was when compared to me

realistically you need need a 17/18 something. 17-85 IS from a canon. I use a Tamron 17-50 f2.8

C - you might want to look at other makes other than Canon. Try Sigma or Tamron. I would be looking at 17 or 18 at the lower end rather than 28. Might be worth a trip to a camera shop for ideas/advice?

Corinna - Referring to Pete's post. If you go to my blog (6 Jan) you'll see a comparison between a 28-80 and a 18-50 lens. Taken in the same spot!
