Best Lenses for Nature Photography

  1. 1. The Best Lenses for NaturePhotographyShooting Landscapes and Wildlife
  2. 2. Nature PhotographyThanks to the variety of subject matters available right outside our doors, nature is one of photography’s favorite subjects. But without the right lens, nature photography can be extremely limiting.With the right lens, however, it can be thrilling. In this presentation, we’ll look at some must-have lenses for nature photography.
  3. 3. Wide Angle LensesThe wide-angle lens is a staple of nature photography. Wide angle lenses allow you to better capture what you see with your eye, rather than the narrow window your everyday lens opens.For stunningly sharp wide-angle photos, try the Canon EF 24 mm USM Lens.
  4. 4. Telephoto LensesTelephoto lenses are ideal when photographing wildlife you can’t – or don’t want to – get very close to. They’re also great for shooting far-off expanses, such as mountain ranges.Tip: Because telephoto lenses can to be large and heavy, they’re not ideal for traveling or trekking. Instead, go for a lighter lens, such as the 20 oz Canon EFS 15-85 zoom lens, an extremely popular lens for telephoto, wide angle and everyday uses. Nikonites should check out the Nikon 16-85mm Nikkor Zoom Lens.
  5. 5. Macro LensesMacro lenses are ideal for shooting flora and fauna as well as insects, such as bees.A macro lens such as the Nikon 105mm micro lens will allow you to take your nature photography to the next level, thanks to built-in stabilizers and an image resolution of 105mms.Canonites will find a lot to love in the Canon EF 100mm macro lens.
  6. 6. ConsiderationsWhen shooting nature, it’s extremely important to use a tripod heavy enough to hold the weight of your camera, lens, and flash. If you’re on the move, it’s a good idea to use a lens with built-in image stabilizers such as the Nikon 70-300mm Nikkor Lens, or an external stabilizer.
  7. 7. Lens FiltersOf course, the perfect lens is nothing without the right lens filter. For shooting on bright sunny days, go for a polarizing filter. For shooting on hot, hazy days, add a UV / Haze filter.For more on using lens filters, view our presentation on how to use a lens filter.
