Using a Portrait Or Macro Lens for Landscapes.

  1. I'm not much of a landscape shooter, but I wanted to show that one can use a long focal length to shoot landscapes and still get half decent results. I was quite happy with how these turned out, and of course the excellent dynamic range of the EM5 is a bonus too :)
    Anyway, not every landscape shot needs to be wide. I used the Olympus 45mm F/1.8 and 60mm F/2.8 for these. If anyone thinks they must have a wider focal length to shoot landscape, hopefully you will be reassured that your longer focal lengths will get results too :) More at the link below.

    Good shots. Your experience mirrors my own, most of my landscapes are with short tele's:)

    I agree. I have taken plenty of landscapes with the Olympus 45 and the 40-150 zoom.

    I love tele landscapes. I regularly used my 100mm macro on my 7D for landscapes - will be doing the same with my 75 1.8 and 60mm macro on th eEM-1.

    Nice shots, too, btw!
