I left home today with my camera bag over my shoulder. The stated purpose was to show Adam, one of our editors, the new lens. No Adam today.
My picture taking started right away. No sooner was I off our street, than I pulled into a neighbor’s driveway. Most days as I pass, I sneak a peek at his flowers. Today I stopped and snapped a few images.
This type of photography might not be the strong suit for this lens. I was going to try anyway.
The real beauty of wide angle photography is fitting a lot more into the frame. That is done at the expense of size and linearity. Everything a wide angle sees is smaller than it would be with a longer lens and parallel lines are no longer parallel… or straight!
Here’s a little sample of what I shot. Nothing special. Nothing Earth shattering. I’m just trying to get a feel for the lens.
