...besides sporting events? I shoot mostly medium format, then large format and a little 35mm. Mostly still life, tabletop, portrait and some non-sporting events. Architecture is on my near term to-do list. In those situations, I don't see a strong call for a long lens, for example 250mm and longer on 6x7 film. Other examples would be 150mm and longer for 35mm film and 450mm or longer for 4x5 film. What do you think? Are there examples of photographers who used longer lenses as a style or signature? What genre benefits from the perspective given by long lenses?
