Landscape Photography

edited July 2013 Posted in » Canon T2i Forum
I understand that with landscape photography a large F/stop number is best, and I also understand ISO settings. I am a new one to DSLR, but I have a grasp on the basics. My question is which kit lens would be best for capturing the widest angle of a landscape if I do not care about zooming or focusing on a closer area of the landscape?

    @shaun91,

    I would grab the widest lens you have. If you have the kit lens it would be a 18-55mm or 18-135mm.
    You have to remember an 18-55mm with a 1.6X factor is really about a 28-88mm. I use a Tokina 11-16mm for really wide shots. You could start around f/8 and go from there. Depending on your lighting, I would have a tripod and remote cable handy as well. Evening and night shots usually require it. I am not a pro by any means, this is just my 2 cents!

    Hope this helps!

    Yes, I was thinking at starting at f/15 and going up to f/22. This is all great advice, thanks for the fast response.
