Thanks again Brian - hopefully Silhouette will be less problematic, though 'perfectly executed' is an interesting caveat.

@Phil Wood: Well done, Phil! Framing is, indeed, difficult... which is part of the point of the assignment The key is to try to match the size of the central subject and let the periphery go where it will. You get a larger sense of the surroundings with the shorter lens and a larger field of focus. Now, on to your next assignment.

Cheers... Brian

Try again!

All taken with a Tamron 16-300mm on my A58.

Original position 70mm



Closer in 35mm



Original position 16mm



Further away 35 mm



Certainly a far clearer idea of the perspective change in these - but matching the framing was a nightmare!

Okay, another shot at part B.

All taken with a Tamron 16-300mm on my A58.

Having problems posting the right images!

Thanks Brian, I can't say I'm surprised about part B - I was struggling to find a suitable subject. I'll have another go!

@Phil Wood: Sorry it has taken me a while to get to these, Phil. Parts A & C are good enough for a pass. I'm going to ask you to have another go at Part B. One of the reasons you didn't see much difference in these shots (particularly the second pair) is that the subject is rather flat and parallel to the sensor. Cheers... Brian

Perspective, Part 3.

A58, Tamron 16-300 @ 35mm





Remained rooted to the spot and held the camera high to my left to see round the intrustive stalk of whatever in the first shot. Would have preferred to retain a bit of the hedging at the bottom - but my view of the camera display was not conducive to optimum framing!

Perspective part 2.

To simplify the picture taking I opted for 18/26/70mm using my A58 and a Minolta DT 18-70mm.

Position 1, 18mm


Position 2, 28mm


Position 1, 70mm


Position 3, 28mm


They do show fairly subtle changes of perspective, perhaps not as marked as I would have thought.

Okay, here we go.

Perspective part 1.

100mm


16mm crop


I departed from the instructions a bit - 16mm v 100mm rather than 28mm v 200mm. However, apart from a bit of barrel distortion at 16mm I think it shows the perspective is unchanged as one would expect given that the angle of view is the same.

Taken with A58, Tamron 16-300mm.

Having had another look back at the task and clk230 on page 7, I've decided that the subject has to be flat or at least narrow for it to work. Apologies for bombarding you but I think that this attempt is probably more what you are looking for than the last effort!
