5 Lens Photos


                                                    Long lens example (compressed background)
                                                    Title: Mr. Walls
This is a good example of compressed background as Coulter was around 50ft away from that tree and a football field away from that house in the distance.
f / 25.0   
1/80s  
ISO 400




Fisheye Example
Title: A-town
This is a good example fisheye because you can see the warping in the ceiling and the bottom of the stairs.
f / 5.3
1/60s
ISO 2000


Wide Angle Example 
Title: The Walk Home
Everything is in focus in this wide angle example.
f / 5.3
1/60s
ISO 2000

Long Lens Example (stretched background)
Title: "What are you lookin at?"
This is a good example of stretching out the background because Braeden was actually not very far from the back wall despite how distant it looks.
f / 4.0   
1/80s
ISO 3200


Marco Lens Example
Title: The Gauge
This photo is a good example of a macro shot because it shows a pressure gauge in a different light and shows a very low depth of field.
f / 4.0
1/60s
ISO 1600

Different Camera Lenses

Prime Lenses: Prime lenses have one fixed focal length that cannot be changed. They are lighter and cost less then zoom lenses, and they offer better light gathering ability. Any type of lens (macro, fisheye, tilt shift, etc) can be a Prime Lens.


Zoom Lenses: Zoom Lenses allow the photographer to vary the focal length. They make it very easy to change compositions and vary perspectives.  Any type of lens (macro, fisheye, tilt shift, etc) can be a Zoom Lens.

Macro Lens: Macro Lenses are used for extreme close-up photography. Marco Lenses have a very limited depth of field when shooting objects at close proximity, so getting small things in focus can be a challenge.
Macro photography looks like this:


Tilt Shift: Tilt shift lenses are used to control perspective, in architectural photography they are used to take photo of buildings that are not warped by perspective.

The first photo in this set was taken with a tilt shift lens:


Fisheye Lens: A fisheye lens is an "ultra wide angle" lens that produces an extreme visual distortion. There are two types of fisheye, circular fisheye (which produces a circular photo) and full frame fisheye which is rectangular like regular photos. This kind of fisheye requires a larger lens. 

Fisheye photos look like this.


Telephoto Lens: A telephoto lens has a physical length shorter then the lenses focal length. They are very useful for enlarging distant objects. 

Portrait Lens: A portrait lens is a lens that is specifically created to take portraits. The lenses are used to shoot portraits and are in the 85mm-135mm range.

f / 5.6
1/200
ISO: 200 
This photo is an example of Broad lighting because one side of the face is prominently facing the camera and only that side is lit.

Short
f / 5.6
1/200
ISO: 200 
This photo is an example of Short because the side that is prominently facing the camera is not lit, but the other side is.
