Lots of questions pop up on Facebook or forums about which lenses are a must-have for your camera bag.  Sometimes they’re phrased like, “what lenses should I carry for weddings” or “what lens is best for portraits”?  I am not sure if there is an absolutely, 100% right answer for those questions because lots would depend on your preferences and shooting style.  But I do know, however that everyone and everybody should have a 50mm lens.

In this video, you’ll get five reasons why you need a 50mm lens.  If there is an industry standard, the 50mm IS it.  Simply put, you should go out street shooting with your body and 50mm and learn to frame shots.  Plus, the 50mm can be very inexpensive.  Enjoy.
