The Nifty Fifty is said to be the lens that comes closest to capturing what the human eye sees. When I got my first DSLR it had a crop sensor and I purchased a 50 mm Canon lens as it was so cheap. Over the years I have used it as a portratit lens. It has given very good results especially when using it with a flash set up. A few months ago, I felt I needed a new challenge with my photography so I put the 50mm lens onto the Canon 5D and used it whenever I could. It was a challenge taking the pictures and was similar with other prime lens which I have written about. Take a look at the picture Metropolis taken with my 40mm lens. When using a prime lens, you do have to think about the composition as you have no capacity to zoom in or out. Therefore your feet have to do the moving. I have provided a selection of photographs taken with the 50mm lens and as you see the results are pleasing. There has been some post processing in a few of the photographs. The result was that I did get a kick out of using just this lens. It was not a case of loosing any pictures because I had the wrong lens but rather that I created new ones.
