Photographic Five #4: Wide Angle Lenses

5 Ways to Make Your Wide Angle Lens Work For You

* Remember to put the most important thing in the middle of the pic, away from the barrel-distorted edges.

* Stand REALLY CLOSE to your subject.  Yes, their nose will look obnoxiously huge, but do it often enough and you can call it a “style.”

* Just crop into the good stuff in the middle of the picture in post.  Your camera is giving you twice as many pixels as you need, anyway.

* Barrel distortion is your friend.  Take pictures only of round objects.  Fill the frame!

* Use it to sell precious diamonds on eBay.  The natural distortion will make the jewels seem twice as large.
