24mm & Chelsea
Updated: Apr 11
I have days when I feel like shooting only with a wide-angle lens, 24mm is just perfect to get some intentional distortion in portrait or fashion photography.
Many photographer asked for tips how to shoot with a wide-angle lens, so here are some tips for your next photography session.
One of the key benefits of a wide-angle lens is the ability to capture more of the environment in the frame, which can add depth and context to your portraits. In a studio, this means you can incorporate more of the background or props into the shot, creating a more dynamic composition.
Another advantage of using a wide angle lens is the unique perspective it provides. By getting closer to your subject, you can emphasize certain features or distort others, creating a more dramatic or artistic effect. This can be particularly useful for fashion or editorial shoots, where you want to create a striking and memorable image.
Of course, using a wide-angle lens also requires some technical know-how. You'll need to pay careful attention to your positioning and lighting to avoid unwanted distortion or perspective issues. But with practice and experimentation, you can achieve some truly stunning results.
As a professional photographer, I always recommend investing in high-quality equipment to get the best results. However, the technology got so much better in producing lenses and cameras that entry-level equipment can give you almost the same results. And if you're looking for inspiration, check out some of the amazing portrait work being done by other photographers on social media.
Here are some images below that we created with Chelsea at the Brisbane studio, using only natural light.
