10 Best Places in Los Angeles To Take Pictures

Who says the best things in life aren’t free? After hiking up the Brush Canyon Trail with our group of We Like L.A.’ers to see the Hollywood Sign earlier this month, it reminded us how much beauty there is to be explored in this city that really doesn’t cost us much of anything at all, except a little time and effort.

A guide to prime lenses and why you should use them

I actually found the information in this video very informative.Especially for those of us who likes to take pictures of different events and for certain occasions.It gave you an in debt detail of which lens is best to use for certain results.It even explain which lens would be more useful for landscaping or for just snapping photos of people.

Key Takeaways:

  • Primes are often quite small and compact, which means they also weight a lot less. They also have wider apertures than even most of the processional zooms.
  • A disadvantage is the single field of view which means that if you want to make something larger or small in the frame, you have to physically move.
  • The only zooms I use regularly are the 70-200mm f/2.8 VR for photography, and an 18-55mm kit lens that’s just for vlogging. For everything else, I use primes.

“If carrying a small, unobtrusive lightweight kit is important to you, then a prime lens is often an easy decision.”
