In Choosing the Right Lens for Nature and Landscape Photography, author and photographer Rob Sheppard walks you through selecting the lens you need for capturing beautiful shots, whether in your own garden or farther afield in the great outdoors. He defines the basic focal lengths you have to choose from, including wide-angle and telephoto lenses, and he demonstrates how zoom features offer multiple focal lengths with one lens. He then shows you how to match focal length to the type of nature you are photographing and how to get that perfect close-up using special lenses. Finally, he discusses depth of field and perspective and what they mean for your images.

Follow along with Rob and you will:

  • Learn the right lens to use for the perfect shot, including wide-angle, telephoto, prime, single focal length, macro, and close-up lenses
  • Use different zooms to get multiple focal lengths with one lens, such as wide-angle and wide-range zooms
  • Understand the importance of depth of field, focal length, and perspective when shooting nature subjects and landscapes
