Author Tip: Using Ultra-Wide Angle Lenses

Ultra-wide angle lenses are a great way to add an interesting effect to your images. Ultra-wide lenses bend and distort your images, which allows you to portray your subjects in a way that the human eye can’t see. This gives your photos an out of the ordinary look that attracts attention from even the most casual observer.

Getting up close to your subject distorts the perspective causing close-up areas to look huge and areas behind to look inordinately small. This is usually not recommended for portraits of people, but can be used for comedic effect and works especially well for pets.

Using an ultra-wide lens close-up pulls the viewer right into the scene and creates the illusion of extreme depth, which can give your photos an almost 3 -D feeling.

Stepping back from the subject and photographing from further away stretches out the apparent distance between the camera and the subject causing short spans to look immense. Use this technique to add a sense of space and depth to your photos.

Since ultra-wide lenses fit so much of the scene into your photograph you really need to pay attention to your composition. Keep a close eye on the foreground and edges of the frame. An empty foreground and a small subject can make your image boring. Get up close and fill the foreground with your subject, but try to exclude distracting elements from the edges of the frame.

When shooting from a distance, your subject is sure to be small. Use the foreground to include leading lines that draw attention to the subject or to create a near-far dynamic that conveys the apparent distance between the subject and the camera.

Example: Motocross Rider
Example: Boston Terrier
Example: Skateboarder

I’ve been having a long Twitter discussion with Will Wilkinson about the economics of the book industry. Will wanted to know how authors could make money without “digital rights management” technology, and I replied by saying that writing a book has always been less about making money than it is about promoting the book’s author, and I suggested that the activity is going to become a lot less lucrative in the future.

To think clearly about the future of the book industry, it’s essential to understand its present. In particular, to make an educated guess about what the price of a book will be in the future, we need to understand why books cost what they cost today. Read the rest of this entry »
