wide angle lenses in photography

March 13, 2018  •  1 Comment

While I use lenses of all focal lengths, I do use wide angle lenses quite often in my photography.

I as a photographer have often used wide angle lenses in my photography work. Most of the photographers are very fascinated by long lenses and especially the ones with opened apertures. Not that I don't use long lenses but it's always a good idea to add variation in your own work. Wide angle lenses let you show the expanse of the location as well when used in fashion shoots, something which many fashion photographers do not go for.

Ofocurse on the street these lenses work wonderfully as well allowing me to shoot from very close to where the action is. because the lens is not really protruding too much, it lets one shoot unnoticeably and one is able to get candid street shots. Most of the photographers are of the belief that one can't get candid shots with wide angle lenses. True, that with long lenses you can be quite away and get the shots without being noticed but at the same time, the long lenses are quite prominent and its difficult that people do not notice them. Because of their size, people think of you are a professional carrying sophisticated equipment. On the other hand since the wide angle lenses are small in size, your subjects do not get too affected by the camera in your hand, as you are holding just about a camera with a small lens attached.

Wide angle lenses let you include a lot around the subject which especially work well in case of travel photography as it let's you show the place as well. It's like shooting a typical tourist attraction with an interesting subject within the frame.

This photograph of the devotees during the time of Namaz at Jama Masjid was shot with a wide angle lens.  


Wide angle lenses are quite a must in Industrial and Hotel Photography. As a commercial photographer, I have photographed a lot of industries and Hotel properties where showing the vastness is a key aspect. Wide angle lenses do emphasize the feeling space in a photograph.

For this shot of a child paying around in Lisbon, Portugal, I just placed my camera with a wide angle on the ground level and clicked with intuition only. A tiltable screen can be quite useful for these kind of shots.
