Aim: The aim of this exercise is to explore the change in perspective of wide angle and telephoto on the same subject and the impact this has on the image.
Plan: My first plan was to use a very tall building but this proved difficult as I would need to be some considerable distance away and could not find the straight path I had visualised. I chose a smaller older building on the corner of a square that had a curved front and some interesting detail.
I took a number of images in succession and have chosen the following two;
|F11, 1/320, 160mm|
|F13, 1/250 sec, 18mm|
Both images have their own appeal. The first image orders the building in it's surroundings and due to the writing gives it a purpose or a place in history. The second image creates more drama, isolating the building. That said, converging verticals are not always wanted in architectural photography hence the use of shift lenses but that is not the point of this particular image.
