Project Getting to know your camera

Focal length and the angle of view:

The object of this exercise was to choose a scene and take 3 photos at different focal lengths with the object of determining what the ‘standard’ focal length is. Standard means an angle of view similar to the way we see i.e using both eyes the object seen through one eye (directly at the scene) should appear the same size as through the other eye (through the viewfinder). Throughout this exercise I used a Nikon AF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 lens.

‘Standard” Focal length at 32mm (Nikon D90 with 18-200mm, ISO 200, 1/640sec at f5.0)
‘Wide-Angle’ Focal length at 18mm (Nikon D90 with 18-200mm, ISO 200, 1/640sec at f5.0)
‘Furthest Telephoto” Focal length at 200mm (Nikon D90 with 18-200mm, ISO 200, 1/250sec at f5.6)
