More Telephoto Landscape Photography Tips

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016 by | Filed Under: Digital Photography

While your first instinct when photographing a landscape might be to go for a wide-angle lens, yesterday, in part 1 of this article, we looked at three ways a telephoto lens can make for better landscape shots. Today, we’ve got more suggestions for using a telephoto lens.

  1. Play with perspectives

Even though the ultra wide angle lens is usually recommended for landscape photography, you will find that with a longer focal length, you can create some unusually remarkable compositions. It’s true that longer focal length does not change the perspective, only the angle of view. A narrow angle of view apparently compresses the scene, such as making the distant clump of trees appear denser, and that thatch of wild flowers thicker. Strive to create pictures with different, unique perspectives to make them stand out.

  1. Widen your purview

With a greater focal length, you also expand your choice of  subjects increases. You’ll be able to shoot wildlife in addition to landscapes. A telephoto lens is best for shooting  wildlife since it keeps you at a distance where you won’t disturb the animals and they won’t be of any danger to you.  Combine that with a beautiful landscape for a background and you can have an almost perfect picture.

Technical adeptness is important to click sharp telephoto images. When the focal lengths are longer, there is the possibility of more camera shakes. Image stabilization  does come in handy but it does not ensure sharp results. So always carry a tripod when you are going to work with your telephoto lens.

Sometimes it’s still best to use the ultra-wide angle lens.  They work best in closed areas, such as the waterfall base. But what you can achieve with a higher focal range may surprise you. Now,  go out with one and surprise yourself.
