    • Nice and simple for the beginner. You should clarify the section on Prime lenses. Any fixed focal length lens is a prime. While you talk about shooting with 50 or 35mm lenses depending on the sensor crop factor, I think you should have elaborated a little more on this and specifically instruct not to use wide angke prime lenses.
