The Canon16-35mm f/4.0 IS L Lens gives you a very wide angle of view of your subject. That provides you with the ability to create achieve strong angles and powerful perspectives of a variety of subjects. These Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 sample images are a randomly selected collection of my own photography combined with some from other photographers.
Another advantage of using a wide angle zoom lens, like the Canon EF 16-35mm f/4.0 IS, is that you can take a lot of different compositions by simply moving your position by a small amount.
The sample image above was my favorite of the 5 different variations I shot using the 16-35mm and its zoom. The 3 vertical composition sample photos below were made with the lens zoomed all the way out to the 16mm focal length.
I'd appreciate your feedback. Can you vote for the one that you think is best?
The 16-35 zoom gives you the ability to compose moderately wide angle compositions in addition to the super wide angle that comes along with shooting at 16mm focal length.
I zoomed out to 29mm for the storytelling pose below.
Shooting shadows with your 16-35mm zoom lens is a great way to practice your compositional technique. All you need is a clear sky and objects to play around with. One of my favorite images that came out of my portfolio of images made in photography school was a simple shadow photo taken in the student center.
The beautiful interior shot below was shot with the 16-35mm lens by Michael D. Beckwith. I particularly like the strong diagonal lines that lead your eye into the photograph.
In another post I explored whether the 16-35 is worth the money. It's one of only a few lenses in this class that has image stabilization built into the lens. The IS is rated as up to 4 stops of stabilizing. For a deeper look at whether it's a good lens for you read the post here.
