What’s more, there’s something to be said for focusing on the little details of a landscape that’s so hard to do with a wide-angle lens.
By shooting telephoto, you can make a shadow or highlight, the shape of a mountain peak, the texture of a tree, and other smaller elements of the landscape the star of the shot.
Besides, since everyone else mostly shoots wide-angle, shooting a telephoto landscape image now and again will only help your photos stand out as being more unique and visually impactful.
Plan and Prepare
Sure, there are times when you’re in the right place at the right time and just happen to take an incredible photo of a landscape.
But those times are few and far between. To get shots like the one you see above, you have to plan and prepare well before the shoot.
Planning and preparing runs the gamut from doing research on the location to determine the best spots for great shots to having the right apps on your phone so you know when sunrise and sunset occur.
What’s more, you have to figure out how to get there, where to park, how far you need to walk or hike to get to your desired spot, and so forth.
