Most landscape photographers prefer to use wide angle lenses for the majority of their work, but that does not mean telephoto lenses cannot be useful as well, and in fact, they can be a great way to distinguish your work from that of others. However, telephoto lenses come with their own pitfalls, and this excellent video details one of the most hazardous mistakes you can make and how you can fix it.
Coming to you from Mark Denney, this helpful video details one of the worst compositional mistakes people make when using telephoto lenses for landscape photography. No doubt, most of us are used to using wide angle lenses for our landscape work simply by virtue of the scenes we work with, but telephoto lenses can enable the sort of shots that make viewers stop and take a second look because they are so different from what they are used to seeing. That being said, they come with their own compositional challenges and pitfalls, so be sure to check out the video above for the full rundown form Denney.
