15. Lens choices for studio work

Which is the right lens for studio portraiture, head-shots or fashion work? Karl demonstrates a range of lenses to reveal the ideal focal lengths.


  1. excellent! Ben was either bored out of his mind or doing exactly as instructed by you Karl. haha! I appreciate his patience and your demonstrations Karl. Confirmed what I have always thought…85 mm or go home!! (Unless you want to distort a portrait to emphasize character or features of course)

    1. Haha no karl told me to be as still as I possibly could so that each photo I would be in the same position making sure you could really see the difference with each lens

  2. Loving the videos! I presume a crop sensor on my 7D would then equate 85mm to 50mm lens been ideal?

  3. What a superb course, I have learnt more than I thought possible. Every single chapter was educational and had merit as a stand alone subject. Thank you very much for all the hard work you put into the videos and all the planning that must have taken place.

  4. Thank you Ben…you contribution towards tutorial was equally important here…
