• large apertures for dimly lit rooms/low-light outdoor scenes
  • macro lenses = small subjects
  • telephoto lenses = distant subjects
    • ideal for emphasizing or bringing a subject closer
    • for flatness
  • wide-angle lenses = when broad field of view is the target
    • give subject's BG equal importance
    • for exaggerated for an exaggerated sense of depth
  • zoom lense allows you to get the perspective you want w/o having to change lenses
  • the more the lens is opened, the narrower the depth of field. the more it is closed, the greater the depth of field.
  • large aperture = blurred bg and fg
  • depth of field is greater with wide angles, smaller with telephotos
  • the larger the lens opening, the brighter the lens
