09 Focal lengths

These images were taken on a koala trail near Lorne which is a coastal town about 2 hours drive west of Melbourne. The intention was to use a koala as the subject but they didn’t want to come out to play this trip, so the car obliged instead..

Shortest focal length







To longest focal length…

Equipment used was a Nikon DSLR and a 28-300mm lens, taken from the same position an zooming in a re-framing for each shot. As you can see the relationship between the objects in the frame remain consistent, however as the focal length increases the subject becomes more abstracted from its surroundings. A longer focal length shot would start to remove it completely.
