The purpose of this exercise is to demonstrate the effect a change in viewpoint and a change in lens can have on perspective. I have taken two photographs of a car I spotted in a local car park to demonstrate the results.
The first image was taken on a Canon 70 -250 lens at 60mm. It shows a fairly normal perspective of the car although it is slightly closer than the "normal" view as our eye would see it.
|Image 1. f/11 60mm.|
|Image 2. f/11 18mm.|
If you imagine a line drawn along both wings of the car from the bottom corners diagonally towards the top of the car, the diagonal is much more pronounced in image 2. This image has a much stronger presence and the impression given is that this car is nearer to the camera. The exaggerated linear perspective gives the image more depth.
