Traditional landscape images tend to be shot with a wide angle lens – generally between 16-35mm. This perspective is one that I love – allowing you to focus on an interesting foreground, while providing greater context (usually along with a magic sunrise or sunset!) in the background. Typically, the whole image is in sharp focus in these images too.
