Click Click! 033: Why Wide Angle?

Every Wednesday of the week, I’ll share with you my moments of Photography in this Blog: “Click Click!”

-Just a simple guy with a camera

The "Castle" F5.0 | 1/40 | ISO 200

“Why Wide Angle?”

It lets you put more STUFF into the shot. If shooting in the same distance with my typical lens, I would capture only part of the castle.  Wide Angle Lens – any lens that is lower than 45mm (in an 35mm equivalent camera) is consider to be wide angle.  In my case, I used a 11-16mm wide angle lens.

The "Golf Ball" F22 | 6.0s | ISO 400

Why Wide Angle?

Because it makes the subject enormous!!! This translate just like the passenger side mirror “Objects are closer than they appear”.

More “Why Wide Angle?” after the break.


"Castle far, far away" F2.8 | 1/13s | ISO 3200


“Why Wide Angle?”

Because I love taking photos of Castles. Items that are that further becomes further.

"Weather we need in Northeast" F2.8 | 1/4000s | ISO 100

“Why Wide Angle?”

It allows me to take landscape photos.  Include the grass, water, and clouds.

"Castle Entrance" F2.8 | 1/60s | ISO 3200

“Why Wide Angle?”

Again, I love castles in the sky. Back to reality.

"Leaves" F2.8 | 1/800s | ISO 100

“Why Wide Angle?”

Because it gives a different type of perspective. But beware of distortion. Sometimes it good to have and sometimes it ruins the photo. Balance is the key.
