Photo Tip Tuesday: Changing Your Perspective

So, what’s today’s Tip? Sometimes, looking for “The Shot” requires a change in vantage point.

Change your perspective. Get up high, or down low!

20150912_Marist Double Dip XC Invite-3742-webAre you  trying to capture lots of buzz going on around you? Then take a higher angle and grab your wide angle lens!

We still need to chat about lenses and how to select them, but the short story is… There are several numbers on your lens. The number(s) in front of the “mm” (millimeter) on your lens tell you its “Focal Length”.

i.e. 18-300mm tells you it’s a zoom lens and you can go from really “Wide” to really “Close Up”.

The lower end of that range (i.e. 18mm) is your Wide Angle  similar to the image here; and the higher end of that range is your Telephoto/”Close Up” (300mm) for zooming in on a farther away subject.

Your lens selection can effect the distortion of your subject, compression, depth of field… the list goes on; which would be way to much to cover in a quick tip, but just thought I’d throw that out there in case you were curious! 🙂

Have a great week!
