Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Challenge 3: Shoot an iconic location with a medium lens, part of 5-Day Photo Challenge: Landscapes.
- Welcome back. In today's challenge, we're going to shoot our iconic landscape or the landscape you often go to to photograph. But we're going to do is with a different lens, okay? Now, we're talking about wide angle iconic landscapes. What if we take the wide angle lens off and we put a medium range telephoto, somewhere in, anywhere from 24 to 100. 24 is a little bit wide, 100 is a little bit long, somewhere in there. Right now I'm shooting this at 80 millimeters so that's, that's kind of what I'm talking about.
So what I want you to do is I want you to take the wide angle scene, switch lenses, and I want you to shoot it tighter, okay? One of the benefits you're going to see all the elements in the background that are interesting and going to get pulled in really close. So, go ahead and give that a try and in the next movie I'll show you what I've come up with.
Make sure to share your results with Justin and other fellow photographers on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook using the hashtag #5DayPhoto.
