Use your hum­ble kit lens when ap­proach­ing win­try scenes

Digital Camera World - - WINTER LANDSCAPES -

A stan­dard kit lens like the Canon EF-S 18-55mm (equiv­a­lent to 28.8-88mm on a full-frame cam­era) will give you a ver­sa­tile reach be­tween a wide an­gle and a mid-tele­photo zoom. Be mind­ful of what you in­clude and leave out of your frame, though, and try to em­ploy the full va­ri­ety of fo­cal lengths.

There’s of­ten so much white in a snow scene that, rather than re­ly­ing on a wide an­gle, the com­po­si­tion be­comes more ef­fec­tive if you zoom in to avoid large ar­eas of fea­ture­less white space. Above, a fo­cal length of 18mm has been used, so that the bridge, the wind­ing river and the frosty fore­ground can all be in­cluded.
