Hello there! I’m so excited to share about something that’s EXTREMELY important to photography: your lenses! I shoot with prime lenses (they don’t have a zoom/master one focal length) and Drew predominately shoots with a 70-200 zoom lens. We like both prime and zoom lenses but they all have different functions. Our Current Lenses 50 […]
