I am working on the content for my next workshop which will be on the topic of composition. Watch out for dates early in the new year. While looking for images in my library to illustrate the effect of focal length on a photograph I found this B&W landscape shot made near Vermillion Lakes in Banff National Park. I think it is a good example of how the use of a telephoto lens in landscape photography has the effect of compressing the sense of depth in an image. This photograph was made using a 70 – 200 mm f 2.8 zoom lens at the 200 mm focal length (Nikon D800).
