Project 52 – Week 9: Wide Angle

A fun theme this week as we explore wide angle, I can’t wait to see what people have come up with as there are so many possibilities. Most of my ideas went out the window but I have a few!

We were told to use the widest length we had to hand – the widest focal length I can use is at 18mm so all photos have been shot at that length.

We’ve had sun all week, with snow, and very cold temperatures! Apart from the cold, these are brilliant shooting conditions!

Here’s my model in training, Spud. He’s a Lab x Collie and a complete natural in front of the camera! We can’t go out properly yet, as he has had his injections late but I can’t wait  to get him out and about. For now though we can use the garden.

I found it very hard to shoot wide angle in landscape when shooting blind so I opted for portrait with them as it was much easier. Also being low to the ground makes him look quite bigger, a good way to change the perspective when using wide angle. I did imagine being on the beach and getting lovely photos there.

Using wide angles allows more of the environment to be captured, however I don’t particularly think the garden is as nice as it is in summer! If we were out on location it would be a different story! For this next image the background was the house, and I really didn’t want to leave this image out but didnt like the house. I borrowed a background from here and found it much better, it was still with the 18mm!

One landscape example shows how much of the scene you can fit in, can you spot the hidden friend? web d

Going wide also gives you more chance to capture a sequence of shots too!

  4. They were all adorable, but I particularly like image #2. The low perspective is great.
