Thread: Are you a photographer or a lens-changer?

    I wonder if we should coin a new term for photographers who know what they are doing...
    You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.

    i think there is nothing wrong to change lens to suit the situation at hand... a good photographer does change lens when the situation calls for it...

    I think it's not about whether changing lens is good or not. The brother is trying to ask her sister whether she knows enough knowledge to be a proficient photographer or she just wants to bring out lots of gear and end up not knowing what to do.

    Those experienced will be "photographers" because they will be taking nice photos.

    Those who just BBB for sake of BBB and not learn the skills will end up changing lens all the time in a "lost" manner and missed out the chances to shoot.

    Me? I won't say I am experienced enough to be called "photographer" but I guess I am not a lenses-changer.

    This is quite a good explanation i would say, very similar to catchlights's.

    in one of my friends wedding, the professional photo who is in the line for 7 years used only canon 17-40. another guy who is a friend doing it for free and exposure changed plenty of lenses here and there, but he didnt give a copy of his work because its too badly done...

    I shoot street photography using my 24-105 on the 5D mark II. However, occasionally i bring out a 300 f/4 in case i wanna frame something tight, like a building, and bring along my lensbaby composer for creative moments.

    I change the lens when the situation calls for it.

    I bring all my usable lenses out n I change according to needs. Like a wide lens for landscrape might lack of details, i switch to a 50mm and stitch them after that. Cause I still "collecting" lens, the "best" tele which I got, is from the 100mm macro. For the 28-75mm, I use till that I couldn't fit in an object, I then swap to my wide.

    Anyway, sometime depends on your outing too. If you going for protrait, you wouldn't need a wide lens, right? But if you really walk about, better bring more, can train up and also, capture what you wants.
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!

    my superzoom camera has a fixed lens, so i guess that leave me out of this discussion completely.

    How big will the lens be? And then it would be useless to bring it around.

    OT: The better question is, "are you a photographer or a lens collector"? lolz

    Back on topic. Most photographers change lenses when they shoot specially outdoors depending on the situation, those that don't change lenses either have a 2nd or 3rd camera with them each with a different lens attached and switch amongst his gear , or they don't have any other lens with them.

    and the next controversial question would be "are you a nose-bleeding 'critic' or an objective one?"
