What Lenses Do I Need For Different Photography Tours?
As with all art forms, what is classified as a ‘good picture’ is very subjective. At the heart of capturing sharp interesting images is your choice of lenses. Which lenses you choose to take with you will depend on the kinds of pictures you hope to be able to take whilst on your tour. Make sure initially that you check your objectives match those of trip, whether you’re on photography tours Europe, Asia or elsewhere. As a general rule of thumb, it is a great idea to take the lenses you have used the most often and that are familiar and comfortable to you. However, the professional photographer you are traveling with will often offer useful advice on what to bring. If you are embarking on a Cambodia photography tour and want to capture scenic shots of the ancient temple complex at Angkor Wat and other spectacular landscape features, for example, consider taking a wide angle lens to enable you to take panoramic shots. Those interested in close up shots of insects or native flowers are well advised to take a macro lens. If you are planning to take portraits, street photos or lifestyle pictures on a Myanmar photography tour, then an 85-135mm lens can produce excellent results; alternatively, for extra-sharp images, then 50mm or 35mm prime lenses will work well. If you are hoping to shoot pictures at a distance or capture scenic shots, take a 70-200mm telephoto zoom lens. This can also be used for portrait photographs.
Choosing The Right Equipment For Your Subject, Whether On An Indian Or Japan Photography Tour
When you are on a tour where you intend to take photos of the wildlife or other photos where you need to shoot from a long distance away, a zoom lens with a long range could prove invaluable. On wildlife of India photo tours, as an example, you might be photographing wild tigers, sloth, bears or leopards and a 100-400mm telephoto lens means you can get sharp, detailed shots without getting too close. However, these lenses tend to be heavy and are difficult to stabilize without tripod or bean bag supports. For lighter alternatives, try 70-200mm or 70-300mm telephoto lenses. To capture the architectural detail of temples, pagodas or ancient thatched villages on a Japan photography tour, a standard 18-55mm kit lens or an 18-200mm will perform well. In this situation, a wide angled zoom lens such as a 10-22mm can also be used to great effect. To photograph the lantern-lit streets of the Gion district of Kyoto, or in other instances where there is poor light, use a high ISO camera setting to make your digital camera more sensitive to available light. Choose a fast wide aperture lens such as an f/1.4. Finally, consider what filters you might need. Different filters can produce different effects. Ultra-violet filters, for example, can cut down on glare and haze. They also have the added advantage of being an extra layer of protection for your more expensive lenses.
