Most landscape photographers turn to wide angle lenses for the majority of their work, but there is an entirely separate world of great images waiting to be made with telephoto lenses. That being said, telephoto lenses come with their own challenges and pitfalls, and this great video will show you some of the most common mistakes landscape photographers make with them and how to correct those errors.
Coming to you from Mark Denney, this helpful video will show you some common mistakes landscape photographers make when shooting with telephoto lenses and how you can fix them. Telephoto lenses often get overlooked for landscape images, but they are a fantastic way to create more abstract shots or to take advantage of compression to bring various elements in the frame closer together. The great thing is that for landscape work, you do not need a bulky and expensive 70-200mm f/2.8 lens; a compact and affordable 70-200mm f/4 will cover your needs and allow you to explore lots of interesting shots. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
