When beginning to use strobes you need to have a light source. Two options of light sources are a flash head with a power pack, or a monolight. The power pack is pretty much what is in the title, a generator. The two power packs are symmetric packs that split power between multiple flash heads, and asymmetric packs that let the power move to different flash heads. If shooting with strobes outside you will need lots of power and when shooting inside moonlights might be the best option for lighting. zoom reflectors attach a honeycomb grid for a more focused spread.

lenses read and write

  1. All camera systems offer a dizzying selection of lenses.
  2.  focus on what you plan to shoot
  3. Less expensive lenses will generally have variable apertures
  4.  all major camera and lens manufacturers offer a variety of focal lengths to satisfy most budgets.
  5. More expensive lenses have a fixed aperture
  6. Wide angles give an expansive view
  7. Wide angles are also handy in tight areas, like small rooms, cars, caves, etc
  8.  wide-angle lenses have the potential to drastically change your photography
  9. Standard zoom lenses are great walkaround lenses
  10. standard zooms tend to cover moderate wide-angle focal lengths all the way down to a medium telephoto
  11. prime lenses offer just one focal length, such as 35mm, 50mm, or 85mm
  12. So a standard prime falls somewhere in that 35mm to 85mm standard range
  13. the most popular standard lens was a standard prime: the 50mm
  14. a prime does force you to think more about composition and point of view, simply because it can’t zoom
  15. And prime lenses also tend to be cheaper than optically-equivalent zooms
  16. Telephoto lenses get you close to a subject without actually approaching them
  17. The most popular telephotos seem to be various flavors of 70-300mm or 70-200mm
  18. zooms allow you to stand back when the subject isn’t quite as approachable or when your subject might be feeling overwhelmed by the presence of the camera
  19.  lenses also compress distance, making everything appear closer together, as opposed to wide-angle lenses, which distort perspective and make things look separate.
  20.  lenses are also excellent for sports, nature, and wildlife photography
