Have you ever photographed a dramatic nature scene only to be disappointed by your angle of composition? Professional photographer, Jim Zuckerman, takes you to an autumn pond in New Hampshire for advice on perspective photography.

Jim positions himself at pond level, sets his camera at f22 for deep depth of field, and uses the camera self timer to accommodate low shutter speeds. He shows you why mirror lock-up will help create the sharpest image, why you should turn off image stabilization when using a tripod, and why shooting at different angles creates options.

Join pro shooter, Jim Zuckerman, in New Hampshire as he shows you the value of perspective photography.

    It would be interesting to see the image comparisons when you change things like mirror lockup and turning of stabilization in the Photography Perspective Tips.

      My personal experience – mirror lockup can really help with long exposure. With most modern lenses (anything designed in the past 5 years or so), I find turning off image stabilization doesn’t help at all. And you don’t have to remember to turn it back on!
