I have been shooting seriously now since 2009. During that time, I have given a lot of thought to my style and expression.
As I look at my arsenal of kit, I can see a lot of toys. When I look at my images for review, I see a lot of expression, joy, dynamics composition.
A friend of mine said to me that she loves my angles. It took me a while to see what she meant.
I final understood that some of my best shoots came about through the use of me shooting at the wide end of whatever lens I was using.- be it a 24-70mm or 17-70mm or even my basic kit of 18-250mm
Recently, I have been experimenting using my Wide Angle Lens a lot more - Sigma 10-20mm
My teacher Bryan Petersen said this lens is a story telling lens. It must be used to communicate a foreground, middle and background subject matter. This means creating an image with multiple layers of interest that all adds to the expression of the scene.
In using this forgotten Lens from my kit, I am excited about the future possibilities I can create.
If it means getting closer then that means I will need to interact more with my subject and surroudnings .
This is a Lens for the fearless.
As for Landscape and Cityscape shooting, this lens is a no brainer.
Stay tuned, lots more coming.
