HAVING FUN WITH PHOTO PERSPECTIVES :

Using Wide Angle Lenses to Create Unusual Photo Perspectives:

 

THIS TYPE OF PHOTO PERSPECTIVE IS THE FUN TYPE OF PHOTO PERSPECTIVE.  I HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT HOW MUCH FUN YOU CAN HAVE WITH THIS AS I HAVE WATCHED MOVIES USE THIS FOR SOME TIME.  WHEN I FIRST WATCHED THE MOVIE SERIES:  “THE LORD OF THE RINGS”  AND LOOKED AT HOW THEY MADE THE LITTLE PEOPLE, THE HOBBITS, I THOUGHT THAT WOULD BE A LOT OF COMPUTER GENERATED WORK THAT WOULD HAVE TO GO INTO MAKING THOSE PEOPLE ALL LOOK LITTLE, OR MAKE THE WIZARD ALWAYS LOOK BIG. AND THEN I READ THAT THEY ACTUALLY DID THAT BY TRICK PHOTOGRAPHY INSTEAD, DOING SOMETHING CALLED:  WIDE ANGLE PERSPECTIVE PHOTOGRAPHY.  AND REALIZED THAT IS SOMETHING WE CAN ALL DO.

WHETHER YOU HAVE A GIANT EATING A VEHICLE OR:

A GIANT PICKING UP HIS GIRLFRIEND.  IT IS EASY ENOUGH WHEN YOU DO A COUPLE OF EASY THINGS.

THIS CAN REALLY BE A LOT OF FUN, AND WHEN PEOPLE SEE WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH PHOTOGRAPHY, THEY WILL WANT YOU TO DO THIS FOR THEM.  IT DOES INVOLVE YOU USING YOUR WIDE ANGLE LENS.  OR THE WIDEST ANGLE LENS YOU HAVE ON YOUR ZOOM LENS THAT YOU MAY HAVE ON THE LENS YOU GOT IN YOUR KIT (LIKE AN 18MM OR SO).

THE REASON FOR USING A WIDE ANGLE LENS IS THAT YOU NEED THIS FOR GETTING THE GREATEST AMOUNT OF AREA IN YOUR LENS TO WORK WITH IN THE FOREGROUND AND THE BACKGROUND.  A WIDE ANGLE LENS WILL MAKE THE FOREGROUND OR MAIN SUBJECT SEEM REALLY LARGE WHEN CLOSE TO THE LENS, AND THE BACKGROUND SUBJECT SEEM REALLY FAR BACK, WHEN IT IS NOT THAT FAR BACK.

LET’S LOOK AT THE EXAMPLE PHOTO HERE ABOVE.  NOW, I DID NOT TAKE THIS PHOTO, BUT, I AM GOING TO GUESS HOW FAR THE DISTANCE IS BETWEEN THE MAIN GIANT PERSON IN FRONT IS VS. THE SMALL MIDGET PERSON IS IN THE BACK.  IF I WAS TAKING THIS PHOTO, I WOULD MAKE THE FIRST FOREGROUND PERSON FILL MY FRAME, SO, HE MAY ONLY NEED TO BE ABOUT 10 TO 12 FEET AWAY FROM MY CAMERA IF I AM USING A WIDE ANGLE LENS OUTSIDE.  THE PERSON IN THE BACKGROUND, HOWEVER, WOULD NEED TO BE ABOUT 25 TO 30 FEET IN THE BACKGROUND, AND GIVE ME THAT SILLY POSE, LIKE THEY WERE ABOUT TO BE STEPPED ON.  OF COURSE, I WOULD HAVE TO LOOK IN MY VIEWFINDER AND POSITION THEM CORRECTLY.

#2 – THE NEXT MOST IMPORTANT THING IN ALL THESE PHOTOS FOR THIS TO WORK, IS THE F-STOP SETTING MUST BE A REAL HIGH NUMBER, AND THEN LET YOUR SHUTTER SPEED SUFFER IF IT MUST.  NOTICE THAT ALMOST ALL THESE TYPE OF PHOTOS ARE TAKEN OUTSIDE WITH LOTS OF SUN.  BUT, ALWAYS USE THE HIGHEST F-STOP NUMBER YOU CAN, LIKE F22 SO THAT EVERYTHING WILL LOOK IN FOCUS.  IF YOUR CAMERA LENS ONLY GOES TO F16, THEN USE THAT.  IF IT GOES TO F32, THEN DO IT.  BUT, USE THE HIGHEST NUMBER ON YOUR APERTURE RING YOU HAVE, AND IF YOU HAVE TO USE A TRIPOD BECAUSE YOUR SHUTTER SPEED HAS GONE TO SLOW, SO BE IT.

SO, REMEMBER JUST USE TWO THINGS:  A GOOD WIDE ANGLE, AND SET YOUR F-STOP NUMBER HIGH.  CAN YOU DO THIS WITH YOUR SMART PHONE?  UMMM,  I WOULDN’T COUNT ON IT BEING SUCCESSFUL.  THE THING IS THAT IF YOU TRY IT, AND YOU SAID: “I DID IT”.  AND THEN YOU REALIZE THAT YOU ARE LOOKING AT IT ON A 2 1/2″ SCREEN, IT MIGHT LOOK OK.  THEN YOU PUT IT ON YOUR COMPUTER, AND BLOW IT UP TO EVEN THIS 5 x 7 OR LARGER AND REALIZE IT’S BLURRY.  SO, I WOULDN’T COUNT ON THIS WORKING WELL WITH YOUR SMART PHONE.  YOU NEED CONTROL OF THOSE 2 THINGS.  YOU MIGHT HAVE A DECENT WIDE ANGLE ON YOUR SMART PHONE, BUT, IF YOU CAN’T CONTROL YOUR F-STOP…. I CAN’T GUARANTEE YOUR SUCCESS.  I THINK THE DAY MAY COME WHEN YOU WILL HAVE ALL THOSE GOODIES ON YOUR SMART PHONE, BUT, FOR NOW , PROBABLY NOT.

HERE ARE A FEW OF THOSE PHOTOS THAT PEOPLE HAVE TAKEN THAT I THOUGH I MIGHT SHARE WITH YOU:
