The ‘Regular’ Lens Problem | Fstoppers


Snow, mountains, forests… The breath of Dracula down your neck. Nicely, possibly not vampires, however bears and wolves. Welcome to Romania.

Since you’re wanting by way of a bit extra ambiance than you often do with wide-angle lenses, 50mm is nice for a shoot within the haze. Misty forests are wonderful topics and Toma Bonciu is not any stranger to taking pictures within the eerie Carpathian mountains. Stretches of historic woodland so far as the attention can see create a number of photographic alternatives. However what for those who have been solely allowed to shoot at a midrange focal size?

Bonciu limits himself to using a 50mm lens on this video. That’s an important problem to strive for your self, as a result of it forces you to get artistic with the stuff you see with your individual eyes. With telephoto lenses it’s relatively straightforward to hone in on an in depth piece of the panorama and summary a picture from it. And the funky converging strains impact of an ultra-wide is certainly one of the crucial seen technical instruments of panorama photographers. So with out the optics doing one thing artistic to a scene, it’s as much as you to point out us what you see.

I actually love his third shot, which leads the attention fantastically alongside the tree line and up into the mountains have been the fog rises to lastly join with the sky.
