A Wide Angle Portrait Photography Tip
For the Best Portraits get in Tight
The ebook is aimed primarily at point and shoot owners although much of the information is easily ported to DSLRs. This shot was taken with a dSLR and a wide angle attachment. The 35mm equivalent focal length (efl) was around 14mm. I am not aware of any compacts that go this wide but I could be wrong.
Anyway to the point. The trick with an ultra wide lens like this is to get in really close. The camera was under two inches away from the subjects face for this shot! Most people thing of wide angle lenses as the ‘get everything into the shot’ lens – it is much better to think of them as real close up lenses. Watch the backgrounds though as clutter easily creeps in.
Anyway, for a lot more like this just subscribe and download the ebook.
