Tele­photo lenses

Photo Plus - - The Apprentice -

land­scape pho­tog­ra­phy isn’t all about us­ing widean­gle lenses. There are lots of mas­sive views avail­able in this area of Scot­land, from huge lochs to faraway moun­tain vis­tas. But some­times it’s hard to cap­ture an in­ter­est­ing com­po­si­tion when try­ing to in­clude every­thing your eye can see. Morag sug­gests us­ing a tele­photo zoom lens in­stead: “I like to use my Canon EF 70-200mm or EF 100-400mm lenses and zoom in to the most cap­ti­vat­ing parts of a scene. Al­ways use a tri­pod with longer lenses when shoot­ing tra­di­tional land­scapes, be­cause at nar­rower aper­tures – and there­fore slower shut­ter speeds – cam­era shake will be an is­sue.”
