“using a wider focal length demands a lot of care and skill”

Welcome to the latest issue of Digital Photographer magazine. Many of us can recall the experience of buying our very first camera kit, and soon after discovering that the standard zoom lens that came with it was more than a little limiting.

How did you decide on the image’s composition?On that day I went to shoot on Canary Wharf, but couldn’t get the shots I was after because of the large number of new building sites and cranes everywhere. As I know this area well and found this viewing spot some time before, I headed straight there. The rest of the composition was created later [with a] 2:1 crop. What do you like most about the image?I like the overall image, especially how the 02 and the building next to it are lit. Did…
