80 Awe-Inspiring Photographs Taken With a "Nifty Fifty"

by

In a recent article entitled "Nifty Fifty: The Benefits of a Fixed 50mm Lens", we highlighted how versatile and sharp a 50mm lens can be. It really seemed to inspire a number of you to try a fixed focal length lens yourselves, and it was surprising how many of you already regularly use one.

In this article, we're hoping to push you over the edge and inspire you to give a 50mm lens a try. Here are 80 images captured with this very piece of kit. Although a few of them are modified and magnified slightly, it's a good idea of what can be acheived!
