Most of the landscape photography we see these days is made to a fairly standard formula. Throw a wide-angle lens on the camera, find a rock or something for foreground interest, and try to create some depth with a midground and background. It can make for some cool dramatic imagery, but most of it starts to look a little samey, and it can be troublesome because the details can get lost in the overall scene.
Going wide can also be troublesome sometimes because it includes things in the shot that you don’t want there. So, why not go with a lens that’s a little longer and focus on something specific? That’s the topic Nigel Danson explores in this video, presenting us with seven examples of how shooting with a longer focal length can improve our landscape photography.
