Shoot­ing wide open (f/1.8, for ex­am­ple)

Amateur Photographer - - Technique -

19Fast prime lenses such as a 50mm f/1.8 are an ex­cel­lent choice for low-light shoot­ing be­cause you can shoot with the aper­ture wide open to let more light in, which helps to keep ISO lower. Gen­er­ally, these fast primes don’t have im­age sta­bil­i­sa­tion – this is more com­mon with zoom lenses – although Tam­ron pro­duces a num­ber of fast primes that have this fea­ture, re­sult­ing in the best of both worlds.
