They say that zoom lenses have made photographers lazy. I don’t know about that, but if you move around, get closer, bend, twist (it’s only your body, come on) you often find you get a better shot. Personally I shoot with an 85 mm f/1.8 prime lens. That is, no zoom. If I want more of something in the frame, I have to move closer. And in moving, sometimes I notice something else that makes the picture better.
A good reminder for all of us aspiring photographers.
