    I recently pulled the trigger on a very nice Nikon 12-24. (Thanks, Bill.) Now I'm wondering how to get some useful shots from it.

    Putting something in the foreground seems to help. Fitting an entire rainbow into the frame was fun. As was shooting one of the largest equestrian statues in Europe. However, I'm not sure I've figured this lens out yet.

    Thus, my request: please post your "best" (whatever that means to you) shots using a 12-24 zoom. All genres welcome. All makes of lens welcome. I'm looking for inspiration as well as education (and would especially like to encourage further 12-24 lens lust throughout the café).

    Can you help a brother out?
     
  2. The 10-12mm range is a challenge. I got my Tokina 12-24 in June and have made enough mistakes to learn a few things, but haven't done a lot with it.

    Here are a few of my "bests" with my limited experience:

    I found it very hard to use an ultra wide-angle lens effectively. However, Scott's landscape shots are absolutely stunning, and Steve's picture is just as good.

    I am going to bookmark this thread. Don't stop posting! I need more reasons for my next lens. ;-)

    Excellent, Mike! The "inside the hot air balloon" shot is an inspiration. It's good for shooting inside things...

    If I can shoot anything as nice as your shots, I'll be thrilled. Thanks for posting!

  13. I tend to use mine mostly when I travel, as I'm *just* starting to develop a creative eye for wide-angle stuff. It really is a new way of seeing, creatively! :smile:

    Evan,
    You could not have asked a better question at a better time.

    I had to borrow a 12-24 today from Flygirl aka Nancy to shoot some interior rooms.
    Have never shot with one before and have not a flippin clue:>)))))))

    How scarey...lol
     
  18. I enjoy my Tokina 12-24 very much. It satisfies my desire for wide angle shots.
