Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #165: Going Wide

This week, on Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #165, Patti invites everyone to go wide (in photos, not football).

I recently began playing with the ultra-wide lens on my phone – Samsung Galaxy s10e. It isn’t a new phone. I’ve had it for over 2 years and I have always known I have that lens, just never found the reason to use it until on the second day of my Yellowstone trip back in July 2021.

For some reason, the other lens was acting odd that day while the ultra-wide lens was acting wonderfully. This lens is 1.80 mm (equals to 13mm under 35 mm focal length) and the other lens on my phone is a 4.30 mm. I thought about using my camera, which was equipped with a 17 mm – 70 mm lens but after a moment, I couldn’t find a good angle to capture this picture nor the nearly dried up West Thumb of Yellowstone.

As we left West Thumb that day, I began to wonder if I should use the ultra-wide lens on my phone more often. Perhaps I should. It saves me a ton of editing as I didn’t have to do a thing to these.

  1. Wow!
    After seeing your post, I checked the settings of my phone camera. There’s a wide aperture feature, which I haven’t used before.
    Perfect to try out for this challenge.
    Your captures are really awesome 🙂
