Photo Tip: The Benefits of Compression

Photo Tip: The Benefits of Compression

The first few times that I photographed this footbridge at Gorton Creek, I used an ultra wide angle lens and was very close to it. While doing it that was let me fill the frame with the bridge, it also added a bunch of distortion. By using a longer focal length (in this case, I used my Sony FE 70-200mm f/4 telephoto lens), I was able to minimize distortion while also adding a sense of distance, thanks to the lens compression. Give it a try for yourselves!
