One of the most important decisions you have to make in landscape photography is the choice of focal length. If that is something you struggle with, this great video will give you some helpful advice on how to choose the correct focal length for any given scene.
Coming to you from Nigel Danson, this excellent video discusses how to choose the proper focal length for a given scene in landscape photography. No doubt, most of us default to using wide angle lenses for the majority of landscape work, but that being said, longer focal lengths can give you more unique shots that stand out from the crowd and can challenge your creativity by forcing you to create more abstract and unusual compositions. And of course, remember that the beautiful thing about landscape photography is that there are many ways to photograph any single scene, and instead of committing to a single one, you can always take multiple shots at different focal lengths to create different looks. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Danson.
