Wide Angle Fun!

Wide angle lenses have a short focal length and an increased depth of field.  They are called wide angle as they cover a large area in their snapshots.  Hence they are used to shoot landscapes.  Here is the wide angle lens I use :

Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC HSM

Here is a wide angle photo of fishermen packing their nets after a fishing trip :

Notice the vista of the beach in the background. With a wide angle lens objects in the foreground appear huge :

The greater depth of field seen with a wide angle lens can be further accentuated by using a small aperture at a large F number. The small aperture may require you to use a tripod in low light conditions as a slow shutter speed will result.

A wide angle lens enables you to capture a whole building :

Waiting for Sawaari!

or bring out the beauty of large skies and cloud formations :
