All types of lens available in the market feature a point where if we move closer to the object of the photo, the lens cannot focus (blurred). Commonly, this point is called Minimum Focusing Distance (MFD). It is indicated in length (for example 0, 5 m) measured from the distance of sensor in camera to the object of the photo.

Here comes the time when I am going to talk about wide-angle lens. This lens is my favorite. I cannot say exactly why, but I can give you a few points that I like most in the lens. And those points are: stretching the perspective, making the object that closer to the lens look much bigger (in relation to all other objects), the lens allow you to fit a lot of things into the image and there is certain dynamics added by the lens to the image (it could be because of the distortions, which such lens inevitably bring to the photograph). Wide angle photography can be fun and challenging at the same time. On one hand, it’s great to pull in so much of a scene with a single shot. On the other hand, it can be difficult to produce a well composed photo at such a wide perspective. There is one more thing, when you photograph a certain subject, the lens require to get close, real close, to the subject and it makes the subject kind of very personal for you, you feel it better, if you see what I mean. Well, better we start talking about all those things in details: Read the rest of this entry ».
The term, fisheye, first mentioned in 1906 by a physician and inventor called Robert W. Wood based on the point of view of a fish inside the water. The practical use started in 1920 in the field of meteorology to study the formation of cloud which was called “whole-sky” lens. The angle from fisheye lens is commonly around 100 to 180 degree while the focal length depends of the film format or camera sensor being used.
The first fisheye lens for photographer produced widely in the early 1960. And commonly they were used because of their unique distortion view. For the 35mm format, the focal length is commonly around 8 to 10mm in circular fisheye and it is around 15 to 16mm for diagonal fisheye or full frame fisheye. Read the rest of this entry »
