This months theme is Wide Angle Closeups. For this months theme we go against the convention and instead of using long lenses for our closeups we use wide angle lenses. The difference is that wide angle closeups offer strong perspective distortions which make for interesting an provocative captures of the subject. In many cases the subject itself will not necessarily be small but getting close with a wide angle lens can yield some very interesting compositions.
