6 Tips for Long Lens Telephoto Landscape Photography

When it comes to landscape photography most people will head for the wide-angle lenses in their bag. But a long/ telephoto lens can add an edge to your landscape photography.

The telephoto lens allows you to crop tight into your subject. To really draw the eye into the image. You can, of course, pick out details but whatever you decide as a landscape photographer you should absolutely have either a 70-200mm or a 100-400mm lens in your bag.

During a recent trip to the UK, I decided to talk you through how I approach long-lens telephoto landscape photography. The subject is Salisbury cathedral. It took approximately 2.5 hours for the light to be in the right place.
