Shooting landscapes with a telephoto lens is a challenging yet rewarding experience. On the one hand, telephotos allow you to reimagine a landscape photograph by zeroing in on a few specific details to create an artistic composition.

OK, we know this one is going to be controversial, but when Matt Granger speaks, people listen because he’s been a top pro for many years. And for someone known as “the Nikon Guy” for the past 15 years, a decision to sell all his high-end gear and move to another system is a really big deal.

I have always held a deep fascination with the cosmos. As a child, I would look up at the stars and gaze in sheer wonder. Our ancient ancestors used the stars to guide their journeys and told stories of celestial beings hiding amongst the deep blue of the night sky, nestled between thousands of twinkling lights.

Polarizing filters make pictures look like they were taken at either the North Pole or the South Pole. Rotating the Polarizing filter shifts the appearance from North Pole to South Pole and back again.
