Mastering The Lens


The world of interchangeable lenses can be both exciting and confusing to all levels of photographers. Mastering The Lens with John Greengo will help you choose the right lens and get the most out of all of your lens investments.

This class will make complex photography concepts easy to understand with a highly illustrated visual presentation. You’ll get a complete tutorial on the full range of lenses and their capabilities along with tips on how to get the most out of what you already have.

We will cover everything from ultra-wide to super-telephoto, zooms to primes, fisheye to tilt-shift. You’ll learn how to match the lens to your needs and get insights on the best ways to use it.


This class covers ideas, concepts and techniques applicable to all brands of lenses. We'll look most closely at Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fuji, Olympus and Panasonic lenses as well as those from 3rd party manufacturers.

Whether you are looking to buy a new lens or just want to get the most out of what you already have, this class will help you to become a master of the lens.
