Delving into Struman Lenses




This week, we’re going in-depth to explore the particular strengths of each of the different types of lens in the Struman range. Make sure to check out the other blog for hot tips about the telephoto and fisheye lenses. In this blog, we’ll discuss the wide angle and macro lenses, and how to really get the most out of them.

The wide angle lens is perfect for photography that wants to convey a sense of the breadth and vastness of the natural world. Do you want to capture a magnificent landscape, stretching out to the horizon? The wide angle lens shines at that sort of thing, from the pinkish golden light of the setting sun to the sublime power of the stormy sea. But it’s not just natural landscapes that suit this lens – it works just as well for cityscapes that showcase the achievements of human ingenuity. This is one reason why Struman’s wide angle lens is a favourite among real estate agents and landscape gardeners – it’s perfect for displaying their assets. Beyond landscapes and location shots, the wide angle lens is excellent for large group photos – use it to take memorable pictures for parties and company events without agonising over fitting everyone in the frame.

The macro lens is made for attention to detail. Are you a collector or a connoisseur who really cares about the minutiae? With the macro lens, you can appraise jewellery, coins and other artefacts. Or indulge your love of the natural world with photographs of insects, flowers and other plants in amazing resolution. The true strength of the macro lens lies in its ability to photograph textures in such vivid sharpness that it feels like you could actually feel the material by running your fingers along the photograph. Its power gives it fantastic practical usage too, even being used by doctors to check skin spots and moles.
