Exploring NIKKOR Lenses: Bali - AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

Rice plays a big role in Indonesian culture and cuisine and its importance is shown through the reverence of Dewi Sri, the rice goddess of ancient Java and Bali. On a visit to explore the terraced rice paddies of Bali, Nikon professional photographer Scott A. Woodward and his student Cazmir Leenheer brought along the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR to capture the beautiful and iconic green vista.

A normal zoom lens, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR comes with a 7.8x zoom range. This is great for capturing a wide range of situations, from sprawling landscapes to telephoto close ups without having to change lenses. Built with a Vibration Reduction (VR) system that compensates for camera shake, Scott and Cazmir were able to achieve crisp, sharp images even during handheld shooting.

Landscape photography is a popular genre for many enthusiasts and professionals. To capture a stunning landscape shot, experiment with the rule of thirds, a principle that can help to improve the composition of your image. Sometimes, having an off-centre composition can be more pleasing to the eye and looks more natural than when the subject is placed in the middle of the frame.

Expand your shooting potential and open up to a wide range of photographic possibilities with the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR.
