Project 1 – The distorting lens – Focal length

Exercise 2.1

Find a scene that has depth. From a fixed position, take a sequence of five or six shots at different focal lengths without changing your viewpoint. (You might like to use the specific focal lengths indicated on the lens barrel.)

I choose the Carnaby Street in Soho.

Carnaby Street


Picture 1 of 5

The entrance with wide angle 27mm equiv. 1/100 f6.3

Without changing the viewpoint the zoom lens just brings us closer to the desired point. The image taken with the focal length of 46mm felt closes to my viewpoint.
