Wide angle photography can be fun and challenging at the same time. On one hand, it’s great to pull in so much of a scene with a single shot. On the other hand, it can be difficult to produce a well composed photo at such a wide perspective. So I’ve pulled together a few photos and pieces of advice for shooting with wide angle lenses.

For the purpose of this article, we’ll consider anything at or below 30mm (full frame equiv) to be a wide angle.

So today my photo was printed in the New York Post without my permission, I originally took the photo for and for only, the editor of that website decided to just give away or sell (NY Post won’t tell me if they sold it for money) the shot.

The New York Post gave me no credit for the shot not in print or online, the online article has no photo credit.

Now before you say that I should go to editor and tell him to pay me, I tried. Either way legally the New York Post is liable because they are the publishers.


It should be noted that after contacting the NYP they apologized and agreed pay for the usage, thank you. Since then has  sold another one of my photos to another newspaper, I stopped working for them.

Alright finally people some good

stuff. Today was the St. Patrick’s Day Parade

in NYC and I was there. I got the best pictures

all at the end of the parade when everyone was

walking slower, the sun was out, and the cops weren’t there 🙂 .

Also I took out my Pentax 50mm 1.4 towards the end. A lot

of the pictures that would of been amazing are not that great because

of a problem focusing. Dave please DON’T shut up your the only one

that is posting comments, I hope you enjoy these.

There are a lot more pictures but it’s just too much

right now.











Please DO NOT use any of these photographs without

my permission. I can easily be reached at

Thank You
