I like wide angle lenses, as this shot, taken the other night at an event I was shooting, shows:
I used a bounced flash and set the camera to manual mode and opened up the aperture, slowed down the shutter, and increased ISO enough to allow the available light to d some work as well.
And wide angle means:
- I can focus easily on “everything”
- I can use a slow shutter speed without blur
- I can get close to someone or something, zoom out, and thus introduce depth.
And that is what I did there.
