The aim of this exercise is to show how a different focal length influences a photographed scene. For this, I chose a brass sculpture by Swiss artist Bettina Eichin, “Dame Helvetia Sitting” and took three shots with different lenses while maintaining the main subject in almost the same position and size.
35mm focal length, f/828mm focal length, f/6.8
As expected, the photograph taken with a telephoto lens gives the impression of reduced distance between foreground and background. Also, the background appears less in focus due to the lesser depth of field. With wide-angle lenses (35mm and 28mm), space appears wider and the background sharper.
