Digital cameras lack some important characteristics that are useful to take different kind of pictures. Every lens has its own specialty, its own special purpose of being used by the photographer. The advance digital photography techniques primarily focus on the selection of lenses for a proper photograph.

We will consider the example of landscape photographs here. To have a clear landscape photograph, you should use the correct lens. Right type of lens will let you take photographs.

So what kind of lenses you will need to take landscape photographs? I will explain some of them. Commonly used focal length is 20mm to 35mm. Many people prefer a 24mm set at f11 to take the photographs of trees at the altitudes, as it primarily focuses on the subject and covers everything that will produce good effects.

Everything is not defined. No set of rules works for digital photography. It is the experience and your efforts which will lead you to take high quality photographs. There are no standards defined, and you will have to learn by taking more and more pictures to see the difference between the lenses. One may be comfortable at a 20mm and other may not. So it depends upon an individual’s choice.

If you do not know about capabilities of your camera’s lens when it is in your hands, then go out and find it out. Let’s give it a try. See how much wide it goes and how much area your lens covers.

If your camera’s lens is not good enough, you will see the difference at the first look. You will observe a photograph with no depth. This is how lens creates the difference. Try to use a 20mmto take a landscape photograph. You will find that depth is in the place of flat lines and wider area covered by the photograph.

Comparison is necessary to excel and make your way to the world of advanced digital photography. Always compare your photographs with each other. Remember your position, subject’s position and the lens used. You should concentrate on everything. Then compare the photographs and find the differences between the good, average and the bad ones. You will find out how you were able to take good photographs, and then consciously use it to take good photographs again and again.
