Traveling today

I am on my way to the American southwest, on Southwest Airlines. So a short post that comes to you from 36,000ft (SWA has wifi).

When I travel, I put the wide angle lens on as my default lens. Sure, I can use other lenses, and often do, but the default is the wide lens.

It is dramatic. It introduces the depth we crave in travel images. It is small and light and flexible. It is also easy to use at slow shutter speeds and it is very easy to focus “all over”.

That’s why my 16-35mm f/2.8 lens is my default on a full frame camera. (On a crop camera, it would be a 10-20 or similar).

Look forward to some images soon. And one more tip: rent a wide angle lens for the weekend and see what it does for you!
