Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Solution 3: Shoot an iconic location with a medium lens, part of 5-Day Photo Challenge: Landscapes.
- Welcome back from the challenge, using that medium telephoto lens to take a landscape that we're used to seeing with a wide angle. Now, it's not going to work every time. But, the important thing is to try and experiment. What I did here from Lake Matheson on the platform that's so often used to photograph, is I took the wide angle off, I put the telephoto on, and I'll tell you what, I like the image better. I mean, this is what I'm talking about. This is it. This is using the experimentation.
I went from a horizontal to a vertical, and the mountains now really pop. So, from my experimentation and following my own challenge, I couldn't be happier. So, I hope you found similar success. If you didn't, I hope you learned and I hope you continue to try that challenge at each location you visit.
