A zoom lens can turn even the most inexperienced photographer (that would be me) into an acceptable photographer. A very docile bovine becomes very threatening in the camera’s “eye”.
With patience, it will allow you to sneak a closer look at wildlife.
It will make the ugliest of birds seem rather regal when framed against a clear winter sky.
And it will make the very jaded and yawning family cat appear very menacing.
So go have fun with your camera, don’t be too critical of your results and remember what Ansel Adams said……………………..
