Knife Edge photos, from below?

Postby djkest » Mon Jul 22, 2013 8:06 am

J/W if it would be possible to get photos of climber's on the knife edge from the Capitol Lake vicinity? Let's assume for argument's sake you have a tripod and a 300mm lens.

ETA: I have a Nikon 300mm DX lens, my understanding is the DX is cropped compared to a full-sized sensor which gives you the effect of more zoom.

Yes, possible with the 300mm lens. Wear bright colors!
