So if you’re Newbie in photography. We brought a new collection of types of camera lens that makes your photography picture quality looks amazing like professional photographer do. In this article I will tell you some different types of camera lenses and their functions. To know more read full article. 

So let’s talk about lenses.

Here is the main list

  1. ZOOM
  2. MACRO
  4. PRIME
  5. STM

Prime Lens

What is the specific field for using prime lens?

A prime lens has only one focal length, it means if you want to get closer to a subject you hat to use your feet. For Maximum aperture, a biggest argument used by prime lens lovers is the speed that prime lenses are able to offer.


Note: – This may primes less convenient than zoom lens, prime are usually smaller, lighter and smoother.

If you are shooting in night or in low light prime lens make here a big difference, because prime offer a wide aperture. Here simply means that prime lens with a wide aperture capture more light.

In other words, the bigger the aperture the more light can go to the sensor.

PHOTOGRAPHY TIP : – If you want to shoot or capture in night or in low light keep the f-stop number lower on your camera to f/2.8 or lower to capture more light, and you get smooth shot.

Note :- If you don’t know the f-stop number please search in Google. Because in future f-stop numbers can be very confusing as they do not seem to make any sense.

After that, you thought how can I make a blurring effect that most of the professional photographer do.


So here you know the trick, most of the professional photographer use the prime lens for better background blur or also called bokeh.

For better bokeh, get close to your subject and keep your subject far from the background.


Note :- For blurring effect prime lens are bit more useful than zooms one. Use ND filter to control brightness in day light.

Zoom lens


What zoom lens do?

As the name suggest, you can zoom the lens to capture the building across the street or the magnificent landscape behind it. If you’re in party or in wedding, this lens is best for portraits as like primes do in low light. The good thing is that zoom lens is specializing in wildlife photography as telephoto lenses do.

But here zoom lens is not so good in low light because of fewer apertures. But in day light it will boost portraits personality captured by you. So, if you want to like taking pictures of people, mount this lens on your DSLR. Zoom the lens on classic head, shoulder or a couple portraits.

TIP: – experiment with your camera lens because for better understanding.

Zoom in a close subject to create a beautiful out of focus background effect. To freeze a moving subject in day light use a higher iso with a faster shutter speed higher than 1/500.


Macro lens helps you to capture on magnify the object. Macro lens is often used to reveal the tiniest of subject.


Do me a favor, go your backyard and capture some flower pictures with macro lens, you will realize no lens can take a place of macro for closer shots without zooming the lens. If you realize, try different angles for more amazing and powerful result.


Note :- This lens is used for capturing small objects like insects, flower and etc.


A telephoto lens is often called zoom lens. So don’t confuse here zoom lens and telephoto lens have there different capabilities.


The easiest way to achieve this is to use your feet. You can get almost as close as you want to a subject just by walking up to it. The main use of a telephoto lens is not to bring things close. In fact, professionals often use their long lenses when they could easily get much closer to their subjects and use a different lens. Telephoto lenses do appear to bring things close, but that’s the blunt end of the instrument.

Here’s how to use a telephoto lens to put a background out-of-focus:

The out-of-focus effect of f2.8 on a background is much greater with a 200mm lens then with a 50mm lens. So if you wanted to dramatically put a background out-of-focus, and you had the choice, it would be best to use a 200mm lens. And the tighter you get on the subject—just head and shoulders, for example—the more pronounced the effect.


A wide angle lens will simply be one with a fairly short focal length. If you have a 14mm lens and an 85mm lens, the 85mm will possess a greater magnification than the 14mm. A wide angle lens can be a powerful tool for exaggerating depth and relative size in a photo.

So the wide angle prime lenses let you play with perspective, capture more out of the scene or get up close to your subject to make it stand out.


What makes a wide angle lens unique? A common misconception is that wide-angle lenses are primarily used for when you cannot step far enough away from your subject, but yet still want to capture all of this subject in a single camera frame. Unfortunately, if one were to only use it this way they’d really be missing out. In fact, wide angle lenses are often used for just the opposite: when you want to get closer to a subject.


A wide-angle lens gives you the power to bring more of your subject into the frame.

Tilt shifts may be the most complicated lenses to photographer. But the perspective altering effects they let you achieve are also super rewarding.


So the question is what is the use of tilt shift ?

If you’ve ever seen one of these crazy images where big things like trucks and planes look like toys, you’ve probably wondered, “How’d they do that?!” Most likely, it was through a tilt-shift. These lenses can copy the way your eyes see something small from up close, for dazzling effects.

Sometimes the term is used when the large depth of field is simulated with digital post-processing; the name may derive from a perspective control lens (or tilt–shift lens) normally required when the effect is produced optically.

Tilt-shift lenses may be hard to use for newbie, but they can unlock the door to some amazing techniques that you only see on TV’s . Use selective focus to tell a viewer where to look. Pretty much any way you use it, a tilt-shift lets you truly experience the power of a lens.
