Improve picture expressiveness, commonly used focal length for street shooting
There is no fixed focal length for street photography, and different focal lengths of the lens will present different picture effects. This time we will take full-frame as an example, select lenses with two focal lengths that are widely used in street shooting, and explain the effects of these two focal lengths.

35mm focal length
Speaking of street photography , There may be many photographers’ first reaction is 35mm focal length. The 35mm focal length can indeed provide unique effects in street shooting. Compared with the telephoto, 35mm can capture more pictures, it is easier to show the story of the picture, and enhance the expressiveness of the picture. At the same time, the 35mm viewing angle can also create the right depth of field and effect. Different from the shallow depth of field effect of most portrait shots, the 35mm focal length, even if you use a larger aperture to shoot, can still guarantee a certain depth of field range, which can better record the picture in the dark light and other special environments Elements, to add more story to the theme of the shooting.

50mm focal length
50mm focal length may be more Known by photography enthusiasts. Compared with the 35mm focal length, the longer 50mm focal length has a better blur effect at the same aperture value. Although the shallower depth of field can’t substitute more background story into the main picture, the clever use of shallow depth of field can highlight the subject more. How to use it should be selected in accordance with the actual shooting environment. At the same time, the 50mm narrow angle of view can also be used for street shooting without being too close to the subject, which can effectively increase the chance of filming for those photographers who are new to street shooting and dare not raise the camera to shoot strangers.
In terms of lens selection, both the NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S and NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S lenses in the Nikon Z system can provide good shooting results in street shooting. Z 50mm f/1.8 S can achieve good rendering effects and exquisite image expression. This lens achieves a higher resolution and can provide sharp detail reproduction in the entire screen. The NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S is a large-aperture wide-angle lens that can provide good rendering effects and is suitable for a variety of shooting scenes. The lens is compatible with the resolution capability of high-pixel digital cameras, reproduces tiny textures, and can also present a soft and beautiful blur effect when shooting at close range.
Of course, in street shooting, it is not only these two focal lengths that can achieve the desired effect. Different focal lengths can get their own unique effects in street shooting. Due to space limitations, I can’t introduce you one by one. More unique effects are waiting for you to try.
