Tip of the Day – Focal length variety
One of my favourite ways to create variety within a session is to keep working the same location, but change lenses for a fresh new perspective. Sometimes you don’t even need to change lenses to create a different look – the 24-70mm lens goes from very wide angle (see the previous day’s image) to approaching telephoto at the 70mm end.
The difference in perspective, coupled with a different angle or pose, can make a big difference and help create variety. Even if you don’t go anywhere new!
