Using Long Lenses
We all know long lenses bring far off things nearer, but by developing a long lens technique you can shoot some really creative and eye catching images.
A long lens does more than just magnify and bring far away things in closer. Long lenses have their own look and will work better for some subjects than other - and I don't just mean distant ones.
Try using long lenses for landscapes, portraits and even close up 'macro' type shots and they'll add a new dimension of wow factor to your photography.
Once you've got your head around your long lens you'll realise they do far more than just magnify distant objects - they open up a whole new realm of creativity.

7 Blocks of Photography was an ideal blend of the technical and creative aspects of photography. The notion that the picture begins with the photographer and not the camera is a powerful one.
The course, like the best educational tools, was particularly valuable because it allowed me to think not only about my pictures before I took them, but more importantly it enabled me to better assess why the photos that didn't work failed.
