I love using wide-angle lenses on location (although I don’t do it anywhere nearly as often as I should). They’re fantastic for showing your subjects in the context of the environment, enjoying their surroundings. They can really suck you into not only the feeling of the location but the mood of the subject, too. They’re not always easy to shoot, though.
In this video, Pye Jirsa shows us how he uses wide-angle lenses on location for engagement shoots to shoot action portrats and create images that he describes as “alive and immersive”. Pye talks about a number of techniques that offer a lot of different options for using wide-angle lenses on location.
