In this video, professional outdoor photographer Ian Plant ventures into a Lake Superior sea cave for the ultra-wide experience.
In one composition, the walls of the cave are extremely narrow, a foot away from the camera on either side. The ultra-wide lens opens up the interior to add photographic drama. In a different setting, Ian uses the focus-stacking technique. He positions his camera close to the cave floor, then sets each focal point in small increments, moving through the range from near to far. All these exposures are later merged to create the final photograph.
Take the adventure with pro shooter Ian Plant, who captures a colorful cave with the ultra wide-angle lens.
