The 1 Focal Length Weekend Challenge

I’m planning to take Digital Photography School‘s photographic challenge: Shoot at just one focal length for the next couple of days.

Choose a focal length to shoot at this weekend (or for at least one day) and don’t allow yourself to shoot at any other focal length.

  • If you have a prime lens it’ll be easy – fit it to your camera and don’t take if off.
  • If you have a DSLR with a zoom lens just choose one end of the focal range and resist the temptation to zoom.
  • If you have a point and shoot camera with a zoom – again, just choose one end of the range and stick to that.

When choosing which focal length you go with – try to pick something you don’t normally shoot a lot at. For example if you tend to shoot fully zoomed in – try shooting with a wider angle. If you normally shoot with wide angles challenge yourself at the other end of the spectrum.

I’ll attempt to use only my 50mm/f1.8 prime lens, which also means I won’t be able to use auto focus.
