As I told you on Sunday, I rented a wide-angle lens this week-end: a Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM from Calumet Photographic in Hamburg. It was really easy and cheap – 23 € for the week-end instead of 722 € if you buy it.
I would recommend anyone interested in photography to rent a lens from time to time. It is such a great option for trying out different type of photos, like portraits, still life or interior photos.
I wanted to try a good lens for interior design photography. My living room is very narrow and long, and it is pretty tricky to take good pictures of it with a standard lens. The result is quite good, but it was not a revelation like the first time I used a Canon EF – 50 mm f/1.8.
So there you go, here is a picture of my grey living room with Mr. Cheds right in the middle sitting on his throne as usual!
