Use a Wide Angle to Distort Perspective – Digital Photography Tip of the Week

Use a wide or ultra wide angle lens to add some extra spark to an otherwise dull image.

Using the widest lens or setting you have, move in close to your subject.  You will notice that the perspective is distorted as the subject gets further away from you. Some subjects that this works very well on are those that have a leading line drawing your eye into a main focal point, such as a fence leading you to a barn.  Because of the distortion in scale when using wide angle lenses, small objects in the front look relatively much large than the large objects in distance.

Also, stop down to increase your depth of field to ensure that who have as much in focus as you can.

Until next time, happy shooting.
