The Long & Very Short of It
It’s actually, photographically, pretty darn simple, in theory. Using long to show scale and short to show size. But showing both with the same subject, that takes a little looking.
The Co-OP at Johnson made it simple though. Shooting with the D850 I used the 300PF to “compact” the landscape and make the Co-OP give scale to the landscape by shooting at an extreme distance. Then shooting with the 8-15Fish, got right up tight with the Co-OP. Two different views, two different lenses, two different stories for one subject. Great morning of fun!
