Taking landscape photography to the next level with telephoto lenses

Do you naturally associate landscape photography with wide-angle lenses? A good telephoto lens can raise a landscape photographer’s creative game considerably – whether to draw out natural patterns that are less apparent when viewed through a wide-angle lens, or to enhance the density of a scene to capture a more naturalistic sense of scale.

Landscape photographer Vladimir Medvedev believes using telephoto lenses for landscape photography isn’t just an interesting flight of fancy, but is essential for creating amazing photographs. “Using different focal lengths is one of the most powerful artistic techniques in the photographer’s arsenal,” he says. “Telephoto lenses enable you to emphasise details that cannot be achieved with wide-angle optics. No amount of processing will help compensate for the lack of a long-focus lens, so I can’t imagine any expedition where I would go without a telephoto.”
