5 Reasons Why You Should Use a Telephoto Lens for Landscape Photos (Shutterbug Video)

Why go wide when you can go long? That’s the message of Shutterbug’s latest photography how-to video offering five reasons why you should be using a telephoto lens to shoot landscape photos.

A telephoto lens? Isn’t that a strange choice for capturing scenic vistas? Not at all, according to Jay P. Morgan of The Slanted Lens who we team up with for the below video. In the tutorial, Jay P. uses the new Tamron 70-210mm F/4 Di VC USD telephoto zoom to demonstrate his five reasons, which are as follows:

1. Compresses the Scene

2. Increases Your Reach

3. Reduces the Area of View

4. Gives Your Multiple Compositions

5. Captures a Different Perspective
