Photography School - Lenses 

Our photography school is equipped with HD DSLR cameras and 35mm film cameras that give students traditional vs digital shooting skills but what can we say about the lenses we use?

Lens of choice : Photography school of precision

Choosing the right lens when it comes to taking a picture is a big decision. Once you have chosen the type of lens kit you want to be using, you have to adapt your shot style to suit the limitations and advantages of that lens. 

For example, shooting on 18-55mm standard Kit lens will give you the flexibility to shoot at fairly wide angles, and you can do portrait shoots as you zoom in to 55mm. However, this particular lens needs a lot of light when you use it for portrait work so you would want to switch with a 50mm at  that opens at f1.8 or 1.4 instead of 2.8 and above for the kit lens. 

Our students are given several different lenses from zoom to wide angles, and macros, and being able to understand how each of theses lenses work makes up part of their studies.  

You can download our brochure to find out more about the kind of photography courses we offer, and also to see some of the student work from previous years. 


Our school director is available to take your calls and provide you with information regarding our photography courses and studying in France.
