    Default wide angle lens

    Hi Bro and sister,

    Need help on wide angle lens in taking grp photo. I'm using the Nikon 14-24mm, f2.8 lens (which is a fish eye lens) to a do a wide group photo taking but it comes out distorted, especially those people sitting at the side front row, the show looks like being stretch. I have tried to use photoshop lens correction but theimage dun looks good.

    Anyone can please help me and guide me. Thanks alot.

    The Nikkor 14-24mm is a rectilinear lens, not fisheyes.

    The distortions you get is inherent in wide angle lenses, regardless of which one you get. These perspective distortions cannot be corrected but can be minimised with careful framing. Just don't frame your subjects too close to the edges of the photos.

    Probably a troll. That was my conclusion too.

    Although I am curious... Troll or not, what's the point of posting questions like this year after year and then disappearing.

    2 things I found pretty jaw-dropping.

    First thing is you think 14-24mm is a fish-eye lens, second thing is you actually use a "fish-eye" lens for a group photo when you mind/bother about the distortion.

    If you intend to use photography to make a living, you have a tough road ahead and a long, long way to go.

    Hey guys,
    What strikes me as strange is that this person is 38 this year but types like a sec school kid.
    When you do try to answer his questions, he disappears if he doesn't like what he hears and retorts sarcastically when angered.

    Not the way he types. The phrasing is passable and still understandable.

    It's the attitude.

    But what can i say, men never grow up and women shouldn't be choosy over which man to marry since most probably, they will never mature and grow up
