When you talk about landscape photography, chances are, you associate it with wide angle lenses. Telephoto lenses are probably the least used in landscape photography, but they do have some fantastic qualities to them.
In a new video of mine, I share five steps on how to master your telephoto lens. The step I forgot to include is you actually have to go out and practice. As an educated teacher and former sports coach, who has been working with kids since I was a teenager, I am a firm believer that you need some theory before you can practice. Theory and practice go hand in hand.
Understanding how a telephoto lens works and what it is capable of is essential to getting the most out of it. Telephoto lenses are available to all camera systems no matter the brand, and I highly recommend having one in your camera backpack whether it is the classic 70-200mm or a 100-400mm. When it comes to the aperture, I find it to be less important than weight, which is why I normally recommend the f/4 version of the 70-200mm. Enough about the specs; check out the video abovem and let me hear your thoughts. Can you add a tip or two to what I said?
