Question by Lele: Im a starter photographer and I was on not too long ago asking what lens I should get next.?
After many suggestions and some research I decided on the canon lens 50mm f 1.4. Wow I love it!!! super fast, beautiful bokhen and so clear. Blows my kit lens out of the water. I know the kit lens is nothing but for a starter like me I was shocked how great it was.I went out and used it the next day taking pictures of my friends baby. Like I said they look WONDERFUL! Now here is my silly question don’t laugh. I have a canon rebel xs. My first SLR. How do I really use this great lens to it’s fullest. I know practice practice. When I bought the lens the guy said shoot with it wide open on single subjects but be careful when shooting more than one because if you shoot wide open with more than one subject. One will be out of focus. Ok that makes sense but what the heck is wide open and how do I change it on my lens. I played with it last night and every time I moved the ring to see a difference in pictures. It always goes back to the same number. What do those number mean and can I chill out the bohken. For example I WANT to see the flowers. Should I Just change the lens or work that lens. I know it’s great portrait lens. BUt like I said what if I do what to see the tree, or flowers. I plan on taking some classes. Just haven’t be able to in the small town of mine. Please any tips would help. Oh I always shoot in [ P] mode. I like that the flash doesnt
ALWAYS pop up. Always shoot in Autofocus and.And I like to keep my ISO at AUTO. Like I said Im a newbie!!

Until you get to the point where you do not have to depend upon the program and auto ISO mode, you are really just using an expensive P&S camera. I hope you are not using the “auto-white balance”
To take more control over your shots, use the aperture priority mode so you can control the depth of field and decide for yourself what ISO you need under different lightings …. this will prevent unwanted and unpredictable noise in your images.
