    ‬ With the lenses you mentioned for our Badlands Master Class on Landscape, would there be a compelling reason to bring my Canon 24mm TS with me if I have the 11-24mm lens? I’ve enjoyed using it but want to stay as light as possible when traveling.

      Dear Ross,

      Thank you for your patience while I got the answer from the expert, here is the reply:

      Greetings,

      That presenter is not available at this time.

      If your priority is keeping your kit light, your best bet will always be to opt for a zoom over a prime. From personal experience, I can speak to the fact the 11-24 is an impressive optic.

      You probably have already factored this in, but the only advantage you receive with the tilt-shift will be the ability to perform vertical correction on some of the rock formations. If that becomes a concern keep in mind that as long as you provide enough cropping room on the original file, Lightroom can perform that function in post-production. If you haven’t played with that feature as yet, I recommend it.

      Greetings,

      I assume you are referring to the life insurance that Ian’s wife wanted him to get (around 26:46). It seems this might have been a joke between the two of them.
      That said you would need to contact an insurance agent and lay out the specs you want and see if they either provide this type of specialized policy or if they could make a
      referral to another agent who does.

      One element to make very clear is whether or not you are wanting this coverage as a commercial photographer or as a non-paid non-professional.
      Also investigate if this would cover all types of accidental death for any reason, in any manner, anywhere, or if there are restrictions. In additional inquire if the policy
      covers injuries (possibly more likely) or just death.

      Happy Shooting ( be careful out there!)

      Best Regards,

      Steve
