HiDesert, you passed part A, well done.

The objective is to show that perspective (relation between foreground and background subjects) is determined by the place you stand, and not by the focal lenth. So the two pictures are supposed to be identical (after cropping)

Part B:

16mm shot:


35mm backed off to match the 16mm (in terms of the framing of the left tree, with the statue centered in the shot):


But one can also match the 16mm shot by trying to get the statue to about the same size, which produces this:


So when you say "match the wide angle shot, does that mean match in terms of the size of the central subject, or the perspective of the other features of the shot? But I imagine that's the point; change the distance, and you'll never match the shot, because we're in a three dimensional world.


70mm shot:


35mm advanced to match the 70mm:


There's less problem here than at wide angle, because the difference between 35mm and 70mm isn't as great a change in visible angle as between 16mm and 35mm. From the original position, the distance you have walk back to (approximately) match the wide angle shot is more than the distance you have to walk forward to match the tele shot. The interesting thing about 16mm, 35mm, and 70mm is that there's a factor of two difference between both consecutive pairs. I'm suddenly wishing I'd measured the distances...

This is a very different exercise from the others, but it's very interesting too; I'd toyed with the idea of doing this sort of thing before I got to this exercise.

So, have I passed, or have I excceded the verbiage limit?

I would say both

No, just kidding, I think with the verbage you've exactly further explained the whole point of this piece of the assignment and you've passed with flying colours with the pictures.

Bigsi, I had to go back to Flickr to see the exif, but indeed a pass. The top shot is with a 135 while the cropped shot was with 18 mm. Lot's of differences is sharpness and detail, but the perspective is equal. On to part B!

bigsi, your photo's don't show anymore. Did you move them to another place in Flickr?

Here we go with part B. I was fighting nettles and cornish hedges to get the angles the best I could, but no matter as I was surprised at the effects of using different focal lengths had on the composition.

28mm

[/IMG]

50mm

[/IMG]

100mm

[/IMG]

Moving back with 50mm to get 28mm shot, tried to keep the tree the same size

[/IMG]

Moving forward with 50mm to get 100mm shot, again, used the tree as the reference

[/IMG]

Taa daaaa! Part C at last, watch this fail...

Visited a local churchyard, saw the evening light shining through some beech trees and onto the gravestones

[/IMG]


I got lower, I wanted the path to guide you through the shot to the flowers which meant I couldn't avoid the manhole cover completely, but hopefully enough for it not to be too much of a distraction.

bigsi, you got it, allthough the first isn't the worst picture/framing either. The light headstones immediately grap your attention. But I agree the second is better so you've now passed this assignment in full.
