As self-proclaimed Bucket List Adventurers (BLAs), Jana Kristin and I like to spend as much time as possible travelling to strange and exotic places for the purpose of photography. Actually this is not exactly true…we’re always excited to travel, and we’ll shoot almost anything, whether it’s strange, exotic, or not.
We’re often asked to recommend the ideal lens for a novice travel photographer. The answer, of course, is “that depends on what you’re planning to shoot”. It only makes sense, for instance, to use a long telephoto so you can keep your distance when shooting lions and tigers and long toothed baboons in the wild. On the other hand, capturing that grand vista in the Himalayas usually requires a wide angle.
