I’ve been shooting almost exclusively with a 80-200mm telephoto lens at Lincoln Center. And the only thing I hate is when the photographers with the smaller focal lengths – which is pretty much everyone else – swarm like locusts to someone. The perfect half-moon crescent they form around the front is cool to look at, but a pain in the butt to photograph through. I need to start using my 50mm more, but I really love having the ability to cover half the courtyard in a single place.
And don’t even get me started on that photographer that wants ‘a closeup of just the bag’ and ruins everybody else’s shot. Isn’t that why we have zoom lens?
