What will I learn on the how to get the best from a wide-angle lens Workshop?
The aim of the working with a wide-angle lens is not necessarily to get more in the picture frame but to heighten the sense of drama of the picture. By necessity this will mean being in close proximity to the subject matter for you to be truly effective. Working with an extreme wide-angle lens is not for the faint hearted, to be successful you have to be confident. That is what this one-day hands-on photography workshop is all about, raising your confidence in a safe learning zone.
