A Unique Perspective

© 2016 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott

The Laowa 12mm f/2.8 Zero D is the widest focal length I’ve ever used on full frame. It is extremely wide, but it can focus down very close (about 7 inches/18cm – and that is from the camera sensor). You can get within a couple of inches of your subject, which allows for some really unique images because of the wide focal length. I was almost on top of these dead pine branches, but the resulting image has a great abstract, moody quality. Despite being so close, there is still the hint of the forest around. This is a very fun little lens, and provides a very unique perspective. To see more from it, click here:
