Wide-angle lenses for street photography
Using a wide-angle lens in street photography is like climbing a mountain. My goal is not necessarily to reach the top, but to find my own path. The 21mm lens is the widest lens I have ever used. Since it produces less distortion, I can photograph people on the street without making them look disproportionate. It also offers a significant depth of field, which enables me to capture fast-moving objects without having to focus too much. The f/4 aperture makes taking street photos feel effortless.
Changing distance and changing style
Wide-angle lenses can create different visual and psychological effects depending on how they are used. In wide-angle lens photography, the subject appears farther away. A wide lens is great for creating distance between the subject and the photographer. However, a 21mm lens can also be great for close-up photos. By changing your distance, you can change your photography style.
Schneider Super Angulon
The Leica 21mm f/4 Super Angulon was designed and manufactured by Schneider, and uses the classic SUPER-ANGULON symmetrical design, which is typically used for the 4×5 format. Lenses with this design are roughly symmetric, with large negative outer elements and smaller inner elements. The Leica Super Angulon 21/f4 rear element comes very close to touching the film, and the distance to the corners and center is very different, resulting in darker and more saturated skies. Vignetting is a fact of life on large-format lenses with a similar design. This lens has excellent contrast and produces very saturated colors.
