Inspiration Sheet: Wide Angles

Welcome

We think of a wide angle lens as being the thing we use to capture a larger field of view. And while that may be the main reason for photographing with one, it is not the only reason.

As you will learn in this inspiration sheet, wide-angle lenses can be used to create distortion effects which can be fun when photographing people and animals. Wide angle lenses also make spaces look larger and airier than they actually are.

Under certain circumstances, I have even used wide angle lenses to make crowds disappear.

Until next time, keep making great images,
Ian
