50mm Lens Meetup

50mm Lens Meetup

Saturday 01 July
Fremont Main Library - 3pm - 2 Hours
Uyen Ta
The 50mm lens is one of the flexible and useful lenses in any photographer’s gear bag. It is neither a wide-angle or telephoto lens, but allows the camera to see on the same scale as your eye. As such, it can be used for a variety of styles, from landscape and street photography to portrait and product photography. In this meetup, we’ll review the basic camera settings. We’ll then cover some of the advantages of shooting with a prime lens, and some basic techniques to using the 50mm lens. As always, there will be ample opportunities for you to put your new knowledge into practice.

    INSTRUCTORS
    Uyen Ta
    Growing up, Uyen has had a passion for taking photos of people and developed a plan to start doing a photography business herself in the modeling industry. Having worked with a model in a very well known agency in SF, she has decided to start teaching the basics and fundamentals of how the camera works. It has been a fun, exciting five year journey getting to where she's at now and ever since then have put less focus on photography and been shifting towards working on other hobbies such as stand up, dancing, cooking and hanging out with close friends and family. She loves to be with her dog, Monty, and loves to make sure everybody has a pleasant experience in a group setting!
