Wide angle flower pictures
I just got a new 14mm lens and I wandered out into the desert to try it out on the cactuses and wildflowers. It was such a wide angle, that I kept catching sky and land that I didn’t really want.
I had to get above it all and shoot down. This is as far down as I could angle it with only hand holding:
That was better. Then I got an idea for how to get even higher and shoot straight down! I used my screw-off monopod from my 3LT Brian and did this:
I wouldn’t recommend this for every camera and lens setup, but weight wasn’t a big deal with my Sony a7s.
Here is what I got:
I entertained myself with shots like that for a while, but then I decided to try putting it underneath to get an angle I never thought of before.
And that got my favorite photo of the day!
