Wide Angle Lens Rentals

 Sharing a little camera info here~I never knew you could rent lens or camera equipment. But you can as I found out when Brenda, a college photography  student, came to help me take pictures.  
She arranged for a wide angle lens rental, as it is great for shooting interiors.
You can rent lens for your particular brand of camera.
She has a Nikon and I had just bought a Canon.
The rental was supposed to be for her Nikon, 
but serendipity reigned, as I had the Canon
 and so we used the lens on mine instead.
I took this shot of her (with the handy iPhone) shooting the mini hutch.
You can see the wide angle lens sitting on the counter nearby.
 These are mostly day one beginner shots,
 but the point is having used a wide angle lens now,
 I can capture more of a room than ever before.  
Here you can see into the dining room when I am capturing
 the windows on the right of the living room.  I was amazed!
 And my tiny kitchen was able to be captured 
from the left cabinets to the right~!
 And from the kitchen window all the way to the dining room french doors!
 The thing that is not so great about the wide angle lens 
and something you have to watch for when you open it 
up to full wide angle, is that it can stretch proportions out.  
You can see it most in the ceiling medallion.  It looks like it is at a slant~
I will probably rent this again, when I redo a room or spring
 comes rolling around and I want to recapture a room again.  

Brenda rented it from LensRentals.com.
 The terms were six days at $70 and it included a prepaid return shipping label, 
which required bringing it back to a UPS store and having it scanned in. 
No compensation with this lens rental company~
just sharing with all the other photog junkies out there!
Keep shooting~!
