VIVIEN MAYER (© VIVIAN MAIER) – GENIUS OBSERVING REALITY

The story of the American photographer Vivien Maier (© Vivian Maier) is an interesting case of fame that came to the photographer only after death. Nobody saw her carefully assembled archive of almost one hundred thousand negatives, it was discovered by chance, and made a real international sensation.

HOW TO OBTAIN BEST RESULTS BY REMOVING AN ULTRA-WIDE ANGLE LENS

Today, most consumer DSLR lens kits are wide-angle. The 18 mm lens on the APS-C sensor camera (or 27 mm on the old 35 mm) is wide enough for most cases. Ultra-wide-angle lenses are characterized in that their focal length is less than 16 mm. It is here that new creative possibilities and new obstacles open up.

On crop sensor lenses, a focal length of 30-35 mm provides what we call the “normal” field of view, which is roughly equivalent to what the human eye sees. At 18 mm the field of view is almost two times wider, so it is possible to place many objects in the frame. At 12 mm you will again get 50% of the field of view, which is already very far from the “normal” – in this case, you need to turn your head to capture all the details. Continue reading
