This week’s photography word is:
Prime Lens – a lens with a fixed focal length. Which means only one angle of view, or no zoom function. So you have to zoom with you feet, this means if you want the subject to by larger in the frame then you have to walk closer to them. The photographs below is of a Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 prime lens.
Prime lenses tend to cost a little less than there zoom lens counter part because there are fewer lens elements in the manufacturing of prime lenses. Prime lenses also come with a larger aperture than zoom lenses.
