Ultra-wide angle in fashion photography

  1. I don't usually like ultra-wide angles, esp. when shooting people, but check out this group of images. Cool!

    That is nice... seems composition is very very touchy with wide angle lenses. Looks like a common formula is keep the head distant (get down low) and centered horizontally which means less distortion in the facial features. Accentuates and elongates the models sexy legs.
     
  3. ...and the blown-back afro helps!

    I have to stop looking for the "like" button on here...

    Anyway, those shots were great! Thanks for posting!! They're creative, edgy, interesting...those are the kind of shots I aspire to capture some day.

    I'd like to ask - how did you know he used a wide angle lens? Is it the "look" or something else? I'm not trying to be snotty, I'm just curious...and still learning. ;-)

    Super wide is particularly handy when you want a HUGE plane of focus. I've got a short lens on my 4x5 that will put things two feet away and 15 feet away in the same plane. It's pretty amazing sometimes. Makes hyperfocal distances pretty negligible in a lot of instances.
     
  8. Hard to explain... I just know that they're really wide. You get used to certain looks. I learned to photograph before there were zoom lenses, and once you've spent a month with a 28mm, or a 35mm or a 50mm, you just know what they look like.
