Top tips for…land­scapes

1 Use a tri­pod

To squeeze max­i­mum sharp­ness out of a kit lens, put the cam­era on a tri­pod and fire it us­ing a cable re­lease, the self timer or ex­po­sure-de­lay mode. If your cam­era of­fers Mir­ror Up (MUP) mode, use that too.

2 Go long

The long end of a kit zoom can help you iso­late in­ter­est­ing parts of scene, ex­clude a bor­ing sky or fore­ground, pick out pat­terns and tex­tures, and more…

3 Find the sweet spot

For dis­tant scenes you don’t need to worry too much about depth of field, so set an aper­ture of around f/8 rather than f/13 or f/16, as this will be closer to your lens’s sweet spot (see box on fol­low­ing page).
