Few lenses generate as much discussion as the wide angle lens. Many people love them, and just as many love to hate them. Discussions with a friend during a photo critique of his recent trip to Hawaii made me realise that understanding the lens as a tool is one step toward getting the most from it. To this end I decided to write a short basic page to help show how to get more from your wide angle lens. As usual you can take this direct link to the page or you can find it on the Tips and More section of this site.
However you get there, if you have a wide angle lens then I would recommend reading the short write up and combining it with the information available in my basic composition tutorial to help you get more from all of your lenses.
The wide angle really is one of my favourite lenses, without which it would be difficult to make shots like the one below of Mt Indefatigable and the wind blown ice on the shore of lower kananaskis lake.
