Why CANON LENS 50mm f/1.8 STM is Good Quality Lenses at Affordable Price for Wedding
Wedding makes me interested in buying a canon lens 50mm f / 1.8. One day, a friend needs help. She asked me to help her photograph a wedding in the church. I am confused. I once photographed a wedding in the church using Canon 5D Mark II and Canon second quality lenses with f/4. A combination of high ISO in 5D with the lens can help me take the picture quickly, get the right exposure, and without excessive noise. But, at that time I was unable to rent such tools. I was only able to borrow my brother’s 600D. I only have an 18-55mm (kit lens) and 18-200mm with f/2.8. I’ve been in a situation that requires me to be pragmatic with limited resources. Then, what are the advantages of this lens?
I have enough savings to buy a Canon 50mm f/1.8 STM. I decided to buy it -IDR 1.700.000- instead of having to rent a full frame camera with some lens. If I rent it, I’ll spend large amounts of money, but I can only use it once. So, I decided to buy Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens that I could use not only at that time, but also in the future. I had to immediately decide whether to buy it or not one hour before the shop closed and I photograph the wedding, next day.
That day, I was lucky because I used a combination of Canon 600D and Canon 50mm f/1.8 STM. The situation won’t be better if I only use a lens with f/(aperture) 2.8, the only widest aperture I’ve had before. The new combination that I have can minimize the problems that might arise at that time, for example; more light sources that cannot be absorbed only with a f/2.8 lens, and therefore makes slow auto-focus performance. In the meantime, I have to take the moment of the marriage process, quickly. Canon 50mm f/1.8 STM is a solution to overcome this problem.
Can be used for a long period of time
I use 50mm f/1.8 STM lens in almost every shot after that for wedding, product, portrait, and graduation, and in my opinion, Canon 50mm f/1.8 STM is a good quality lens at an affordable price when compared to brands and other types of lenses on the market with more expensive prices. So, if you are looking wide aperture lens with prices below IDR 2.000.000, the Canon 50mm f/1.8 STM is suits you.
Produce good ‘Bokeh’
People said they like f/1.8 because the lens can produce bokeh photos. But for me, more than that, it was able to create artistic differences form, especially in outdoor shoot. This advantage will not be used to photograph subjects/objects with ordinary wall background. You must have to try it to understand what I mean. In fact, without an understanding of the depth of field, this lens will not be effective. I hope with this lens, and your understanding of this lens you can produce good and classy photos.
