• Usually, wider lenses have a higher f-stop, so if you're working in manual mode, crank your f-stop all the way down to 3.5, 4 or 5.6 and push your ISO a little high, around 400-800, to get maximum light sensitivity. Shutter speed can be at 80-100. This balance is critical when you're indoors shooting interiors — this is just a rough suggestion here though. You may be in different conditions, such as bright, sunny room or a dark basement, where your settings will be very different.
• A wide angle lens can be tough for photographing vignettes/details. I suggest switching to your kit lens or a fixed lens for those types of photographs, as they've got that lower f-stop for maximum depth of field, and it's easier to isolate the subject.• Lastly, enjoy the full frame! Use every inch! Things can really get dramatic as so much information exists on one picture plane. I love this about shooting with a wide lens — pay attention to the figure/ground relationship, because there's a whole lot more foreground when shooting this way.
