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

At the disposal of the photographer was a Sony Alpha A7 camera, a Sony FE 90 mm f / 2.8 Macro G OSS lens, which Jason rented, an inexpensive on-camera flash and a reflector. Continue reading

 Sit down, meditate and watch

Photographing flowers is a good reason to meditate. Try to find a place away from people (if possible), sit down and relax. Do not immediately grab the camera in your hands and do not start shooting immediately. Take your time! Feel the aromas, learn the structure, color and shapes.

Take a look around, try to find a few possible frames around you, without moving. It works for me! Visualize possible pictures and imagine how everything will look together at the end of the photo shoot.
