On Using an 85mm Lens for Street Photography And Forgetting Your Idols

On Using an 85mm Lens for Street Photography And Forgetting Your Idols

I used to be one of those street photography believers: you know, the ones that always say that you need either a 28mm, 35mm or 50mm lens to create street photos. And that there is nothing else that you can possibly use whatsoever. But as I’ve grown as a photographer, I genuinely believe that I was wrong in that thought process. In fact, I’ve had a number of street photographers pitch their work here who used 85mm lenses and sometimes longer to create images that are fantastic. And while 50mm lenses will let you work closer to your subject, there isn’t a great reason why a modern 85mm lens can’t be used to street photography.
