Why did nobody ever tell me that I can do this with my wide angle lens? This is a thread for wide angle macro photography, or using a wide angle lens to take close up photos of objects.

Does anyone here take a lot of wide angle close up photography? What can you tell me about your experience doing this? Any tips for choosing or orienting a good subject? Do you use a shallower depth of field, deeper depth of field? Post your best wide angle macro photos.

Here's a shit pic I took with a friend's fish eye a while back. I never edited it but I did a quick 30 second edit.

It's pretty crazy how close some wide angles can focus. I remember this 8mm lens could focus all the way up to something touching the lens, and then a bit more.

This is really popular actually, it's called porn

My 8mm can focus on things touching the elements, was messing around on my bed with it and at f/22, and the blanket touching the lens was in acceptable focus. No pics on my harddrive of it unfortunately.
>>
lel7.65mm

Clearly the optimal lens for this pistol is an 8mm fisheye.

probably because wide angle close up photography usually looks like ass.
in your case it kind of gives tat dirty harry lens perspective to the barrel but in most cases it is just shit.

didn't work out too well for Robert "LaVoy" Finicum.

>>2755098
Try .45

Nice

I got medium format, so with a fisheye the FL is long enough that I can use regular extension tubes to get as close as I want.

The same could be said with any wide angle photography. It doesn't work in all situations. I'm totally uninitiated to this kind of thing for close ups. Hence, the thread and the questions in the OP.

It was late at night, I didn't have any natural light to work with, and I just went to the place in my apartment with the best lighting. Sadly, that was my dirty kitchen.

So your dumbass never bothered to look at what your lenses minimum focus distance was?
>>
>>2755036
No, literally a wide angle is used for close up shots of the dick to make it appear bigger compared to the person
>>
>>2755320
>The same could be said with any wide angle photography.
not really true, Wide angle is often quite nice with a vast subject, IE landscape. Outside of that it is at best, a cheap effect and at worst a cheap effect.

>A fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity.
A fear of weapons is a perfectly rational response, weapons by nature are designed to cause harm, pain, or death. A lack of fear would imply sociopathy. Familiarity can offset that fear, that's how millions of people wake up every morning and get into their car and drive to work, when in reality we are all more likely to be horribly maimed in a heap of twisted metal on the freeway than randomly shot, stabbed, or beaten.

Gun, dick, same shit.

Freud had a lot of stupid ideas, and i'm not afraid of weapons anyway.

It's hard to take you seriously in your blanket dismissal of Freud when evidence supporting his idea is sitting right in front of your eyes, in this very thread: >>2755355

You contradict yourself in your own post with your car example. If the only people who lack fear of cars are those who have experience with cars, then in other words, the ones who fear them lack the emotional maturity to deal with reality. How is this any different from what Freud said?
>>
>>2755380
life is a contradiction my friend
-fear is the natural response to any perceived danger
-familiarity can provide a false sense of safety and negate fear
-If all we felt was fear of danger (items, situations, activities) we would never do anything.
-if we felt no fear we would either fall to extreme violence and or be killed off rather quickly.
Either extreme it the reptilian brain and it will kick in at some time or other with all of us. And sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

I am afraid of guns and I would be stupid not to be, I have had a loaded 30.06 pressed firmly to my chest and yeah, I was really, really fucking afraid. But I am not anti guns, I do not wish to ban them, I don't own any myself but I do have a permit to do so if I wish .

I don't follow your reasoning and I find the bulleted list of reasons you wrote to lack any sort of logical coherence, but thank you for disclosing that you have an emotional investment in the discussion. It puts your posts in perspective.

Here's an example. If I was attacked by police dogs while playing in the woods when I was a small child, and I am still to this day deathly afraid of dogs for that reason, that's called having an irrational fear of dogs. It's irrational because most dogs that people meet are not police dogs, but regular, non-killer dogs, so I'm letting a single experience in my youth over-ride infinite potential experiences I may have in the future with dogs.

Irrational fears are closely tied with our emotions because of their ability to over-ride our reasoning. I may be able to recite statistics showing that 99.99% of dogs will never attack a human, but my irrational fear might still cause me to obsess over the remote possibility that any one of them could make a lunge for my neck, like a killer police dog. The rest of the population of people who don't share my irrational fear of dogs doesn't have a "false sense of safety," though. They just have a more accurate assessment of the real risk that dogs pose, due to their more advanced emotional maturity, and thus they are able to come to terms with the fact that dogs don't actually pose much of a threat to humans.

Let me just say it again because it bears repeating. You are just proving Freud right.
