Exercise Standard focal Length
This was going to be an interesting exercise, slightly easier for me as I am lucky enough to have a full frame camera.
I was using a 24-70mm lens set to 50mm.
I tried before I went out keeping both eyes open as I took some test shot, the notes say that what you see through the lens should be the same as you see through your other eye.
After a few test shots I set off to London where I was hoping to capture a number of images over two days which I would use for a number of projects.
On the first day I went to a Christmas Market where shooting with the lens set to 50mm I captured the following images.
I stood at the counter watching the guy cooking pork. Keeping the lens at 50mm I kept both eyes open and took the shot as the wind blew the steam across the bottom part of the image.
After checking the image it was similar to what I had seen with my left eye. This situation was relatively stationary so I set off to get a moving image.
Standing behind these ladies, who were watching their kids on the ride I waited for all three of the kids to look at their parents.I liked the fact that there was three subjects on the bottom of the image and three subjects on the top of the image.
I liked this scene as I was taking an image of a person taking an image.
Back to another cabin selling food again I wanted to capture more steam in the image as I think it sets the scene of hot food being served on a cold day.
For my last selected image of the day I wanted to capture the view that people would have as they walked along the River Thames looking at the market stalls.
I walked up and down for a few minutes to see which view was better. I liked this view as you can see Big Ben.
Taking images with both eyes open was very difficult. But it is a skill that I think you would have to grasp in the taking of many photographs, for example a photographer following a football match, looking out for the ball getting kicked to another player.
