More Wide Views

February 17, 2009 at 5:59 pm 5 comments

We had a nice sunny day on Sunday (here in central Pennsylvania, you notice those rare sunny days) and I took my new ultra-wide-angle lens out for some more experimenting on campus. I’m still feeling my way—you get very different results depending on whether you’re shooting from a standing, kneeling, or lying position, and depending on how you tilt the camera. Anyway, here are a few shots from Sunday.

The Beta Theta Pi house on Burrowes Road. I'm not sure in what month they actually take down their Christmas wreaths.

The IST Building, which is definitely funky, but not THIS funky. It's partly distortion from the wide-angle lens.

The lens doesn't always create wacky curves. It can also straighten things out. This is the former Atherton Hall, along College Avenue.
