Fun with wide angle

posted on 31st of october, 2012

I started photography with a 50mm prime. I was so skeptic about wide angle lenses and distortions that buying a Kit lens was a 'no no' for me.

After more than a year I somehow thought of buying a superwide angle of 10-20mm. Still I used to make mess with most of the shots due to wrong angles. It is definitely not a cakewalk to apply wide angle in apt cases. Howvever once you are game and practice, wide angle seems to be pure bliss :)

Be it a landscape or an architecture or a cityscape wide angle helps you to get a unique perspective. I sometimes use it for portraits as well to get such perspective. Most of the contests I won due to my wide-angle only :) Wish I can buy a Tokina fish eye soon.

Here are some samples from my portfolio with Sigma 10-20mm. i am yet to upload few of my best wide angle shots from my trips to the Himalaya.

Few of my wide angle shots (I did not keep them for sale) were featured in Times Photo Journal, 121clicks, fotoflock by Epson etc. :)
Lte me know your story about wide angles.

Thanks friends :)
Thanatonautii, 3rd party lenses are cheaper than Canon/Nikon etc. You can also go for 2nd hand lens if it still produces sharp images :)

Really great pictures! I would love to have a superwide lens but I think it`s too expensive for my budget :)

Angelsimon....right u r. As I said I do take portraits sometimes :) However, some of them look great with 10-20mm but do not have commercial value , so did not share here...

Nice landscapes. Try to do portraits of people with this extreme wide angle and you will see what is funny...
