50mm Focal Length: Weekly Photography Challenge

0Comments

7We’ve written many times about why we like 50mm lenses here on dPS (for example here, here and here) and every time we do we get a heap of readers telling us that they love them too.

So this week your photographic challenge is to take and share an image taken with a 50mmm lens (or if you don’t have one – taken at around the 50mm mark on your zoom lens).

Feel free to take any kind of photo – just make sure you’re shooting at 50mm!

Once you’ve taken your 50mm photo upload it to your favourite photo sharing site either share a link to them even better – embed them in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPS50mm to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks Low Light challenge – there were some great shots submitted.

    Taken with my Nikon d80. I love my 50mm for just about everything, but especially portraits.

    I use a Nikon D60 which has a 1.6 factor due to its sensor size. My question is, on my 18-55mm lens, do I use setting of 30mm which will take effective focal length to about 50mm (30x1.6=48) or do I set it on 50mm which will make it effectively 80mm (50x1.6=80)?

  • D_Miller July 8, 2013 01:13 am

    Dusted off the 50mm which is a favorite lens actually and got my old man while he was guarding the yard =).

    I concentrated on displaying the great depth of field advantages of an f1.8 lens. I've only had it for a month so any feedback/suggestions are appreciated.

  • blueb3ll July 7, 2013 03:51 am

    I don't have a 50 mm lens, so this is taken with my zoom lens at x2 which should equal 53 mm

    The 50mm is my new go to lens. I'm in love with it! I just snapped this one of my daughter yesterday as we walked to the local 4th of July carnival! She was so excited.

    Hey everyone!
    This is a bunch of firsts for me, but I thought I'd take a shot (my first photo pun). First time learning how to take proper pictures, with my own (first) DSLR, with my first Flickr account to upload it here, and my first time showing one of my pictures on this site. Hope I did this right.
    (And sorry if this shows up multiple times. I couldn't seem to embed the pic in the comment.)

    I have a question about the emails with the Weekly Challenge. I received my email at 11am on July 4th. When I opened it at 11:34am on July 4th, I found over 100 replies to the challenge, with dates starting on June 29th.

    What happened to cause this? Is the Weekly Challenge started a week earlier in Australia or other parts of the world? I don't quite understand this. Please explain.

    Thanks for a wonderful service of this weekly newsletter! I enjoy it very much and am learning a lot from it!

    These caterpillar images were taken using my 50mm prime lens: http://sterlingstarling.wordpress.com/2013/07/03/the-hungry-caterpillars/

    Discerning eyes, however, will probably recognize that I have attached to them my close-up adapters, so I guess it may be "cheating" a little! Nonetheless, I hope you enjoy them!
