17mm: THE WORLD AROUND YOU (with Sigma 17-50mm f2.8 HSM)
17mm: THE WORLD AROUND YOU
By: Hoan K. Trinh
Your eyes have the same field of view as a 35mm lens on a DX format camera. On a 17mm lens, the camera have a much larger field of view than that of your own eyes. In other words, at the 17mm focal length on your lens, your camera can see more than what your eyes can possibly see in one frame. 17mm is not considered to be an ultra-wide by any standard on a DX camera, but it does give some interesting perspectives without too much distortion. Here are a few photographs taken at 17mm, to show you perspectives that the eyes cannot see.
*All photographs were taken on the Sigma 17-50mm f2.8 EX DC OS HSM lens. Yes, i realized that the name cannot be any longer.
Enjoying the White mountains. At a lake in New Hampshire.

After the storm
