If you’re keen on shooting portraits, then for the very best results you need to invest in lenses with pulling power.
WHILE THERE ARE countless focal lengths on offer to digital SLR photographers, ask any specialising in portraiture the type of lens they prefer and the answer is almost always, without exception, either a prime like a 50mm or 85mm, or a telezoom like the 70-200mm f/2.8.

Technically, we haven’t had any manned missions to any planets yet. The outer planets, with their high pressures and gaseous compositions that lack a solid surface are unlikely to be entered by humans. Meanwhile the inner planets are, in general, too hostile for us to land on due to their proximity to the Sun – Mercury and Venus are too hot and the pressure on Venus much too high.
