Close Range with a Wide Angle Lens

See my Sony mirrorless wish list at B&H Photo.

See my reviews of the Zeiss Batis lenses.

It’s so easy to fall into the trap of shooting everything at medium-far distance; this close range stuff is great fun as an alternative. Depth of field is minimal of course, but context need not be sharp in many cases.

The about $1499 Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8 focuses quite closely, making juxtaposition of near and far elements possible. The autofocus helps hugely when contorted into low positions while trying to avoid sliding into the lake.
