A Guide to Lenses for Landscape Photography

A set of lenses is to a photographer as an arsenal of paintbrushes is to a painter; lenses let photographers change the way a location is portrayed. They afford wide-angle views, tight close-ups, the ability to isolate subjects, and the option to keep everything in a scene in or out of focus. Especially in regard to landscape photography, lenses are one of the few means with which you can really impart personal vision into an image, compared to studio or portrait photography, which gives you the extra advantage of being able to adjust the subject, as well, to suit your intentions.

Using Vello AF Extension Tubes for Close-Ups of Azaleas

Flowers are like sunsets, in that if you can compose and expose the frame properly, it’s pretty much a slam-dunk that you’re going to be walking away with good, if not very good, photographs.

Not long ago, my wife brought home a basket of white azaleas. Although I’ve seen azaleas umpteen times in the past, something caught my eye this time around. Maybe it was the late afternoon light, maybe the subtle variations of yellowish white, the soft curls of the flowers’ edges, or any combination of the above. All I knew was that I wanted to photograph them.
