I see some wonderful portraits here, but what do they mean by "prime lens"?

Fixed focal length lenses like the 135mm lens used in the post just above your post. Zoom or variable focal length lenses like a 24-70 or 100-400 are not considered "prime" lenses.

Thanks Tim,
That disqualifies me. I love taking portraits, but I didn't until after I got into digital photography and little belt pouch cameras with zoom lenses. "Sing c'est la vie" as Sonny and Cher used to do.

You may want to check out some other thread here:

Post Your Headshots

or

Portraits not worthy of their own thread.


or

Black & White Portraits


Look around, you'll find plenty of places to post portraits that do not require a prime lens!

Thanks Tim,
I have posted two on Headshots, and will more once I get a gallery going on SmugMug and figure out how to post from there to here. (By the way, I am curious of what you had to do to get titled "Creme de la Curmudgeon.")

An original 5D shooter is jealous that you can shoot so cleanly at ISO 3200. Nice job!
