One of the most important lenses that outdoor photographers can buy and use in their photography is the wide-angle lens. Wide-angle lenses can be used by the photographer to create stunning compositions full of interesting lines and enormous foregrounds. With that said, you can’t simply slap a wide-angle lens onto your camera body and start shooting, expecting to be successful with the wide-angle effect. In this video, David Johnston, professional outdoor photographer, will visit a waterfall to look at how to use a wide-angle lens to capture larger foregrounds that suck you into the frame, as well as how to make your backgrounds more effective in your composition.
