VENTURE UNSEEN INTO THE WILD
Whether you’re shooting birds or beasts, it’s hard to get close to most wild animals—and sometimes dangerous. But with a telephoto in your hands, you can get face-to-face with nature without ruffling any feathers.

Tip: Focus on an animal’s eyes to capture more dramatic and emotional wildlife images.

YOUR FRONT-ROW SEAT TO THE ACTION
Season tickets might get you close to your favorite athletes, but nothing gets you closer than a telephoto lens. Whether you’re capturing pros in an arena or your kids in a field, a telephoto lets you see and record the emotions that make sports so rewarding.

Tip: There’s a lot going on at most sporting events, so tightly frame your photo to avoid distracting elements.



DISCOVER AND REVEAL TRUE CHARACTER
Athletes aren’t the only people you can capture with a telephoto. From a distance, these powerful lenses let you grab candid shots of people acting natural. From close up, they take portraits with beautiful background blur.

Tip: Learn how to brace the camera against your body to capture shots from a distance without the camera shake.
