Going Really Wide

Ultrawide angle photography is very challenging. Its challenging because its hard to compose an image where including so much of what you see actually creates an interesting composition.

Perspective distortion also makes it very challenging to photograph people with an ultra wide angle lens. You definitely want to keep the face out of edges or corners of the image.

I chose to compose the image above that way because I wanted to place Maya's milk cup in the lower left of the frame with Maya approaching in the upper right-hand portion of the frame. Seemed like a way to get interesting composition at the time.

Technical Specs: Nikon D3s, 14-24 @ 14mm.
