Distortion - Scott Kotelnicki
This blog was going to cover the technical aspect of the lens, distortion and the artistic choice of using a particular lens.
The sole purpose of this shot was to show how lens can create distortion. This shot was taken with a Canon 10-22 wide angle. I got in extreme close to produce distortion and create the illusion that the branch in focus as larger. I also want you to see how the horizon in the background has been reduced to nothing but from where I stood was the most prominent feature in the landscape.
These can be artistic choices learning how to control you perspective.
Be warned though using the wrong lens can also create disastrous results. Using this same lens for a portrait will ruin your chances for ever getting repeated business.
