5 Great Tips on Using a Wide Angle Lense!

5 Tips for Creative Photography Using Your Canon Wide Angle Lens

Here are some tips to help you achieve those fantastic photographs you are after using your canon wide angle lens.
This is a great way for you to add creativity to your photographs by capturing a wider field.

The subject may be the image's focus; however, by using this wide angle lens, you can make good use of the background in the picture to add interest. This way the picture will capture a larger story instead of just a photo; for example, in a picture of two children playing on the beach, you may have captured a small fishing boat going past in the background. In respects to the larger lens, the wide angle lens gives you a stronger depth of field. This is great in that it will not only give you a background and foreground, you also have the chance of keeping everything focused. However, on the other hand, if you were using a bigger lens then you would need to have the aperture more closed. This would mean you would have to use a slower shutter speed and a tripod, which is of course more time consuming. With all the extra messing around, the depth of field very well may not have the strenght it would have had you been using a wide angle lens. The great thing about using a wide angle lens is that if taking photo shoots of such things as railroad tracks, a jetty, fence-line things that may stretch into the distance, then by using a wide angle lens will actually give you great photos. This will give you a photograph where you may feel like you can actually walk right along the railroad track giving very strong lines to the picture. One cool thing you can create with a wide angle lens is the addition of a dimension which makes objects that are distant apear to be much further apart than they actually are. The objects at the forefront look smaller, while the background objects may seem a lot more distant. The tips I have provided shoud help you in some manner to acheive the goals you have set for yourself when it comes to creating fantastic pictures. There is nothing better than getting your camera and taking different photos using your wide angle lens and experimenting to see what sort of pictures you have taken.
