A guide to using the 10-17mm DA for landscape photography
Posted By: amcinroy, 04-04-2009, 10:01 AM


I am a landscape photographer from Northern Ireland. I have recently written a guide to using fisheye lenses (in particular the Pentax 10-17mm DA) for landscape photography. I you you find it interesting and inspiring.

I've fixed your link above; it should read instead of http://www.andymcinroy.com0904note.htm/

Great guide! Article approved.

That is a nice guide to a nifty lens. Nice photographic examples, too.

And the "T-shape composition" cured my crossed-eyes! :-)

As the author points out, this is a great lens for HDR landscapes. I get the most use out of the 13mm setting (20mm equivalent). It's a very useful outdoor lens (and if you wish you can fix those curved horizons in post)

Yes. It is a wonderful short guide to using an excellent but sometimes difficult lens.
