Photo Tip #2: Move BACK!
Posted: 12 August 2008 .
WHAT? doesn’t this contradict that last posting in June, you ask? No, here’s why. Again many people ask me about buying a zoom lens but the problem are as follows: 1. they don’t want to put out the money for a real zoom lens; and the cheap ones really don’t do the job right, 2. It’s just too big to lug that thing around everywhere; so people buy the thing and then end up leaving it at home. So then they are back to square one. In that last post I said “MOVE CLOSER” too often people are too far away when all they need to do is to take a few steps forward for a great photo.
BUT, and this is a big but. But, very often people will see something cool in the distance and they really want just that thing, BUT they don’t have that expensive zoom lens I recommended and further more they don’t have that hoover craft to get them there! So now what? STEP BACK AND CONSIDER THE WHOLE PICTURE! See the whole forest and make it work. I know this is easier said than done but… that’s my best advice.
