I’ve been wanting to try this for a while now and seeing this post has reignited my resolve to buy a decent wide angle lens and get creating.

I know that most of you have heard of the wide angle lens before. And also know that most of you think the wide angle lens is meant to take pictures of a wide piece of real estate such as a landscape photograph. Well you can certainly use a wide angle lens for that purpose, but in most cases the landscape will look flat and lack detail because everything will appear so far away.
You see, when you think wide angle, you should to think close up. That’s a strange way of thinking, but I promise when you start to use a wide angle lens up close, you will find that this is where the magic happens. A word of warning, if you shoot close up on a person, you will distort them. Noses will become bulbous…
