Using wide-angle lenses can be tricky. Though it allows for more of the scene to be included in the picture, it could also make the foreground objects appear disproportionate. No doubt, they could be quite handy but only when used right – and Spencer Cox discusses exactly how to do so in this article on PetaPixel.
Cox explains the pros and cons of the key characteristics of the wide-angle lens. According to the nature photographer, their potential for extreme negative space is one of its more important features. Cox also discusses image stabilization and the potential for perspective distortion.
