landscape pictures within a city from atop a building
or on the beach is one type of landscape photography.
But if you want to get closer to nature and shoot unique
pictures of nature and environment in remote locations
like wild forest area or mountain ranges, then you have
your task cut out for you just like a wildlife photographer.
You need the spirit of adventure within you in order to
travels around to different places and scour different
regions for landscape opportunity.
is tough to firstly identify the right spots, you may
have to explore for days before you find an idyllic panoramic
landscape to shoot. You then have to wait for the right
light conditions while braving the weather and the rough
living conditions. In terms of equipment, landscape photographers
need to go in for a variety of wide-angle lenses since
this type of lens is capable of lending depth in the photograph.
A wide-angle zoom lens is useful in this type of photography
because of the range of focal lengths it can provide while
fine-tuning a shot. But there is also the need for telephoto
lenses for certain shot though not of the high focal length
required by sports photographers. Landscape photographers
usually go in for telephoto lenses with focal length less
than 300mm (a telephoto lens has a focal length greater
than 50mm, a wide angle lens is less than 50mm, and a
standard lens has a focal length of 50mm).
