Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Photographing an amphitheater with a long lens, part of Architectural Photography in Chicago: A Fine Art Approach.
- So, having come here a couple days ago…and really scouting the place,…gotten some angles that I have in mind that could work.…And the key with the long lens is that…it's a telephoto, not a prime.…So from 70 to 200 I have a lot of play.…So it's really about changing angles and zooming.…Don't forget to zoom in and out as you go.…Now, I may not know exactly what the shot is here,…so I'm going to take quite a few angles,…and then when I get back and post, I'm able to…put it on a big screen and really think about it.…So the important thing is to experiment.…
So, every once in awhile I'm going to stop…and take some different angles.…I love the way the sun is really…brightening up certain portions, but then we have…that shade and that light/dark contrast.…It's really wonderful to see that.…And you also have, kind of a gold tone as well.…This could be black and white, but it might…actually be color with the gold, I don't know yet.…That'll be something to be fun to kind of look at post.…Keep moving this way.…Check more angles.…
