Your lens selection allows you to control the perspective of your subject. When combined with the angle of view, it helps create the visualization that we suddenly have, a natural beauty. Think of the background as another element. It is worth viewing from different angles because the same subject may look spectacular from one angle, yet another angle might yield a more stunning view from just a few steps away.
When I find the angle and perspective I want to shoot from, my lens choice becomes clear. On a fine Spring day, my camera bag will include the Canon 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM, the EF11-24mm f4L USM and the EF70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM along with my Canon EOS 5DS R and tripod.
These images were captured at Gibbs Garden in Ball Ground, Georgia; where you’ll find me creating more beautiful flower images.
