Explore the creative options that wide-angle lenses provide in landscape photography.
- Hi, I'm Justin Reznick, and in this course we're going to dive into wide-angle photography. Primarily using landscapes and architectural work. What I'm gonna do is be able to share images and really explore what makes a wide-angle lens work. We're gonna deal with strong foregrounds and backgrounds that have a relationship. And establishing depth from front to back. We're gonna talk about photographing at night. Night photography is amazing but it's really best with a wide-angle lens. We're also going to do something really cool with tilt-shift wide-angle lenses and how to do panoramas.
And, finally, there's something called distortion you get with a wide-angle lens. If you ever looked through one you know where these lines converge. Well, when is a good time to do that artistically? Now, the wide-angle lens is something that a lot of you may have used before, or you could be new to it, and it's exciting to see the world in such a unique perspective and to take in this grand view. But it's so crucial to follow some simple guidelines in order to make an effective image. You don't want to include everything, you need to really learn to simplify, even with such a large perspective.
So what I'm really hoping is that as you follow through these movies and look at examples illustrating each one of these points that you can really take your wide-angle photography to another level.
