50mm Lens Meetup

Saturday 08 June
Downtown Lafayette - 10am - 2 Hours
Lafayette Photography Group
Mallory Stanford
The 50mm lens is one of the flexible and useful lenses in any photographer’s gear bag. It is neither a wide-angle or telephoto lens, but allows the camera to see on the same scale as your eye. As such, it can be used for a variety of styles, from landscape and street photography to portrait and product photography. In this meetup, we’ll review the basic camera settings. We’ll then cover some of the advantages of shooting with a prime lens, and some basic techniques to using the 50mm lens. As always, there will be ample opportunities for you to put your new knowledge into practice.

Title or Location: Peaceful Waters
This scene is from Lake George, New York. We visited in the summertime a couple years ago and I?ve painted this particular scene several times since because I love it. This time I transformed it into a winter scene and used cold wax and oil, which I found perfect for creating texture in the painting.

Title or Location: Santa Trees
This was specifically painted for my Christmas Card and I started with this ceramic Santa Gnome. I particularly loved this little gnome because it had the Christmas tree with lights like my aunt made for me back in the ?70?s. After painting him I felt I needed something else so I added a couple of ornaments next to him. BUT then, I wanted more so I used my pallet knife to create the background trees with thicker paint. It made a beautiful card!

This originally was just a practice piece. The back is covered in scribbles and paint patches. But out of all of them this was the best, so it?s framed and will be hanging in the New Beginnings show at the Art Council in Denham Springs on Hummel Street.

An experiment using soft pastels on stretched canvas. The texture of the canvas lent itself to the pastels quite well. The image is based on a photo taken by a friend visiting Venice, Italy. By using more vibrant colors than the original, I believe it became more magical.

Title or Location: New beginnings
I'm new to oils and painting, I would say my style would be fine art and surrealism, no rules and I can escape, experiment and have fun. I painted this scene as I'd came across a beautiful photo of calla Lilly valley in California, I use the idea but made it my ownwith the colours and changed parts of it, I like the perspective and the enchanting mysterious vibe it gave. Returned to art almost a year ago, still finding my way, but determined, excited and fully motivated to reach my potential,

Title or Location: The Boats at Sunset in Bradenton
I was at The Starfish Restaurant when I captured this view on a cold day in Bradenton Florida from the dock behind the restaurant. I was fascinated by the light coming from one of the boats and the gas pump. The photograph helped me to produce this oil painting when I got home in Ohio.
