The Distorting Lens. Exercise 2.2

“Select your longest focal length and compose a portrait shot fairly tightly within the frame in front of a background with depth. Take one photograph. Then walk towards your subject while zooming out to your shortest focal length. Take care to frame the subject in precisely the same way in the viewfinder and take a second shot” 

So…first of all, make sure to read the instructions! This is not a background with any substantive depth. So the only real change in the background is the detail in the stonework over LGC’s right shoulder. Still, I like the photos, and it was our 30th wedding anniversary on the day it was taken!

Slightly counter-intuitive in some ways walking towards the subject and zooming out too.
