Stairs – a wider view

Staircases can be compact and difficult to photograph.
Extreme wide angle shots need careful attention to image geometry and composition.

By choosing the correct specialist lens and  post-production processing techniques, images of the quality shown here are possible.

The steps up to the chapter house at Wells are the location of Frederick H. Evan’s “Sea of Steps” image (1903), but taken with a modern wide angle shift lens, whilst the second example shows just how wide a view you can get with transforming the geometry of a fish-eye  lens (see also the blog article ‘Vertical line in wide views‘)
