Try this out: Put that wide-angle lens away and go long with your landscape photos

Photography trainer Mike Browne has shared a new video that discusses using a long lens for landscape photography. While a majority of landscape photos are captured using wide angle or normal lenses, Browne goes on to show that you can capture excellent landscape images with a longer lens.

In the video, Mike uses a Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 G VR lens to capture the rocky Icelandic landscape in a less traditional way. He also captures the same scene using a Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G lens to showcase the difference that lens selection can make on the final image.

Check out the video below to gain insight into how Mike views and processes a scene to make his lens selection.

Rather than let traditional rules dictate his photography, Mike lets the scene and his vision for the final image inform the decisions he makes out in the field on composition, lens choice, and camera settings.
