  1. I have a question. I do model kits photography (ig:, when i take the picture for my posed kits, it's hard to get the whole thing in focus. Sometimes the shoulder is a bit blurred, or the tips of the feet. So, my questions is that, how do I gauge what aperture to use at what distance to get a better picture?

  2. Definitely helped out immensel… The tips about having a sharper image and not using 1.8 just because I can really makes sense because that's what made my early photography not as a great as it couldve been.

  3. Question. I shot a picture at f4 and shutter at 1/160 and my focus wasn't on my subjects… it captured the ground instead, even though my focus points were locked on my subjects. Any thoughts?

  4. Hiee …. I'm going to switch in prime lens but I don't know which lens is better for canon 77d and my budget also approx 150$ ….. And it's compulsory toh buy a prime lens ….. What's the difference between kit lens and prime lens …… Why prime lens is compulsory ?????

  5. I was wondering, how much of the brightness/exposure is controlled by shutter speed vs iso? Complete Amateur here and was noticing huge differences when using different aperture and was trying to correct the lack of/ too much brightness using shutter speeds and iso.

  6. Hi there i have a very important question here I use 50mm 1.8 s Lens with a 6d cam I see auto focus in photo is great and fast but with video I very bad and not tracking is this normal or this lens has a problem thanks

  7. I got a question. I just got a canon t6i and (I have a ef-s 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 is stm Lense) I'm trying to take a full body picture of a person. But I want the background to be blurry.

  8. I'm a bit confused. Isn't the intention of getting a F1.8 55mm because of the DOF being much smaller/shorter? Your opinion is to "up" it a bit. I may as well as continue to use my kit lens. Thanks!

  9. I've been trying to get sharper photos with my 50mm, but most of the time all my photos are fuzzy when I zoom in. I definitely learned a lot from your video. Thank you for sharing.

  10. I bought this lense today… I taken some PHOTOS at shop setting on 1.8 aperture and all PHOTOS blure I was sad at that time… Bt u cleared my all doubt I am happy now.. Thank u 🙏

  11. Is there a way to zoom in and out very quickly using this lens? I just got it today and can't find a way to zoom at all. If not what lens should I get? I'm looking for something to use with my Viltrox Speedbooster on my Canon M50, that can replicate fast zooming in-and-out like you see in shows like The Office.

  12. Thank you so much for the useful information….. specially Tip#1…. I was really upset with the outdoor performance of this excellent lens at 1.8….. but found good results at 2.8 o wards……
