Know when to switch your optics, and you’ll increase your chances of getting stunning photos. In this session you’ll learn of the importance of optics and how to switch your optics when necessary.

Not only do you need great composition skills, but in nature photography you also need to use the correct equipment and settings. This session thoroughly discusses this, showing you when and why you’d switch lenses, use a tripod, and more.
