In my life and career I’ve gone through the usual phases. Newbie, equipment junkie, minimalist, and everything in between. Since I stopped shooting commercial work and started working for myself, I’ve been doing mostly landscapes with a single lens, a 16-85. It’s a terrific, sharp lens that is perfect for grand landscapes and general people work. About six months ago I decided that I needed to stir things up a bit, so I got a 70-200. Longer lenses aren’t usually associated with landscapes but in my case the effect was remarkable.
