The field of photography can be a very expensive hobby depending on the needs and the tastes of the photographer. While the majority of people no longer need to invest in buying films and paying to process and print negatives, there is a wide range of camera lense equipment and accessories that will be useful in a variety of situations. The more time you spend as a photographer, the longer the list of additional gear that you would like to have to perform specific tasks.
Lenses are one of the most common areas where a photographer spends their money. There are many different types of lenses available and a wide variety of pricing within each type. The type of lens and the number of lenses required by any photographer, either amateur or professional, depends on the type of shot they want to take, and the effect that the photograph should have.
Most DSLR cameras used by photographers have the ability to interchange the camera lense. There are a number of types of lenses that are useful for specific types of photography – a wide angle lens, a telephoto lens, a prime lens and a macro lens.
