If you were to ask any landscape photographer what their primary workhorse lens was, the overwhelming majority would likely name something like a 16-35mm. No doubt, wide angle lenses are popular in the genre for good reason, but they are not the only suitable choice for landscape work. This great video will show you some of the possibilities of a telephoto lens and why it can sometimes be a better choice.
Coming to you from Photo Tom, this awesome video will show you what you can achieve with a telephoto lens for landscape photography. As you will see, the beauty of a longer lens in this case is twofold. First, it allows him to isolate a few individual elements in what might otherwise be an overly busy woodland. Second, the compression of the longer focal length brings the elements closer together than they would be with a wide angle lens, giving a bit more drama to the final image. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
