EX­PERT TIP USE A LONG LENS

Practical Photography (UK) - - Mono Masterclass -

“Many pho­tog­ra­phers se­lect a wide-an­gle as a mat­ter of course when shoot­ing land­scapes. Not sur­pris­ing re­ally as this lens seems per­fect for cap­tur­ing the grand vista in front us. It also of­fers a greater depth-of-field re­sult­ing in a sharper pic­ture from fore­ground to back­ground. How­ever, us­ing a longer lens will bring a dif­fer­ent di­men­sion to your im­ages. It al­lows you to com­press per­spec­tive, a great tech­nique when shoot­ing a se­ries of hills or rows of trees. A long lens also en­ables you to iso­late de­tails and show a clear fo­cal point in your image. So next time you’re in the great out­doors try shoot­ing some long lens pic­tures and bring some va­ri­ety and in­ter­est to your land­scape im­agery.”
