Other Useful Lenses

I use the lenses I described earlier for most of my wedding work, but a few other lenses in my bag are handy for very particular situations. A macro lens is really useful when shooting close-ups of jewelry, florals, and other details (see Figure 10). A wider lens such as a 20 mm or a 17–35 mm zoom is handy when shooting an entire room, and it can also be fun for shooting the whole dance floor or the reception scene from various angles (see Figure 11).
