5 reasons to buy an ultra wide lens

Super wide-angle lenses are a very specific class of optics, with their own features and fields of application. The effect they create is very difficult to replicate with other lenses or programs.
Lenses with a field of view of 90 or more degrees on the diagonal of the frame (that is, wider than those of the human eye) and a certain focal length are considered “super-widths”:

Impossible is possible – dynamic portraits from the ambassador Canon Samo Vidic

Why are some people considered photogenic and others not? And how can a photographer, especially a beginner, get around this concept and make portraits that are pleasing to the eye, delight your model and tell your story?
Any genre of photography requires practice. For portrait shooting, especially shooting female portraits, you need to be able to not only choose the right equipment and camera settings – although this, of course, is very important. The second part of the case is the ability to see and show the character of the model, convey the mood, use details and build a story.
As for photogenicity, it’s not how people look in the photo, but how they feel and lead in front of the camera. And the task of the photographer is to break down the barriers, to help the model feel confident, and then to find angles, poses and lights that will hide the flaws and emphasize the dignity and strengths of the person.
