A Wider View
I often tell people when they ask about my photographs about my wide-angle lenses. Sometimes the discussion centers on what some people would say is my style. The angle of view, the timing, the lighting, the action, and the tale.
I love my wide-angle lenses. Not for their wide-angle but for the effect that is made by using them to emphasize foreground-background relationships. Without foreground objects a wide-angle lens photo is nothing more than a snapshot. Adding or using a foreground element as a piece of the composition can add depth or help explain why the background is so important.
Having said that, here’s my wide-angle photo for the day. The foreground object is less obvious but essential to showing the loneliness of the birder standing on the dock abutment searching for a feathered companion.
