Picture This! – Our Next Assignment
Stacking & Tele-Compression
Telephoto lenses do bring you closer to distant subjects, but they also offer an optical bonus; the effect known as “stacking,” where distant subjects seem to sit atop one another and create a mostly 2D effect. Our Picture This! assignment this month is to use a telephoto lens and create images with “stacked” looks that contain multiple planes and subjects that are brought not only closer to you the photographer but look even closer together to each other in the frame. This photo shows the water towers of New York and was made with a Canon EOS 40D and an EF 28-135mm lens, which at 135mm gave an effective focal length of about 200mm.
