Wide-an­gle lens

NPhoto - - Feature -

Now, I re­al­ize that ad­vo­cat­ing bring­ing a wide-an­gle lens, as well as an 18-200mm travel lens, is cheat­ing some­what on this fea­ture, but as­sum­ing that you are us­ing a DX cam­era, this will have a crop fac­tor of 1.5x. The widest fo­cal length on an 18-55mm kit lens or an 18-200mm zoom lens will have the same crop as a some­what lack­lus­tre 27mm on an FX cam­era.

If you can bear the ex­tra weight, tot­ing a Nikon AF-S DX 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED lens will en­able you to shoot amaz­ing su­per-wide shots and get right up close to your sub­ject for en­gag­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal por­traits and edi­to­rial shots.

ABOVE Ramp­ing up the ISO means that you may be able to leave the tri­pod at home, but ex­per­i­ment with your cam­era to estab­lish just how high you can go…

RIGHT Shoot­ing at a wide aper­ture along with a high ISO, and prop­ping your­self against a pil­lar or wall, en­ables you to shoot the gloomi­est in­te­rior
