Landscapes and Ultra-Wide-Angle Lenses: A Marriage Made in Heaven

Short Description:

Product Description

A friend of mine once described his favorite wide-angle lens as his “gateway to landscape photography,” and that’s a pretty good metaphor for wide-angle lenses if I ever heard one. Wide-angle lenses and ultra-wide-angle lenses naturally lend themselves to capturing landscapes with a sense of depth. They also tend to capture a sense of drama that you seldom get when photographing landscapes with longer focal length lenses.

Wide-angle lenses feature angles of view (AoVs) ranging from about 63° to about 74°, which on a full-frame camera includes lenses ranging from about 35mm to 28mm. For APS-C format cameras, wide-angles range from about 36mm to 18mm, and about 18mm to 14mm on an MFT camera system.

Ultra-wide-angle lenses are defined as wide-angle lenses with focal lengths wider than the above-mentioned focal ranges.

Wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle lenses inherently add a sense of depth to landscape photographs you seldom get when using normal or telephoto lenses.

When It Comes to Landscape Photography, Fast Apertures Aren’t a Priority

You do not need the same type of fast-aperture lenses sports photographers require to shoot landscapes. Slower wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle lenses with maximum apertures of f/3.5, f/4.5, and f/5.6 are perfectly capable of capturing extremely satisfying results, and most of these lenses are available for well under $1,000. Regardless of how wide a lens opens up, with few exceptions, most landscape photographs are captured at smaller apertures for maximum depth of field.
