Today we'll talk a little bit about lenses in general and specific lens photography Interior / Architectural Photography. Is there such a thing as “Lens photography Interior”. What is the difference between the different lenses. There are some distortions and how to overcome them or take them Ltobotino. so lets start.

Note: All Entries photography interior design and architectural photography can be seen under הקטגוריה של צילום אדריכלי ועיצוב פנים.

עדשת Tilt-Shift

עדשת Tilt-Shift, Or on behalf of the other lens distortion correction, Is a lens that allows additional adjustments beyond those of any standard lenses. Tilt-Shift lens enables tilt (Changing the angle of one part of the lens to the other part) ו-shift (Sliding of one part of the lens to the other part).

I know hard enough to understand the explanation in words so here's a video from youtube demonstrating the use of Tilt-Shift lens:

Why should such lenses? Architectural photography frame to put large buildings and in most cases can not stay away too backward. Therefore there is no such choice to shoot with wide lenses (wide angle lens). But the wide lenses have side effects. All lenses create distortion extensions to some extent. And therefore invented architectural photographers lens distortion correction.

But in recent years, professional photographers are abandoning the lens distortion correction. And actually I rarely see this kind of lens for photographers and interior architecture. why? Well, There are a number of reasons. The first is the price. These lenses are much more complicated construction and therefore the price usually starts from 8000 that”Eighth. The second reason is the continuous improvement of wide lenses. Wide lens distortion of modernity much smaller lenses decades ago. And the third reason is digital processing. Even during the film photographs have been processed. Committed dodge & burn and other techniques, But it was not possible to align buildings. Today this nation can easily perform alignment and distortion correction.

So if most of the pros do not Mstmim lens distortion correction, What they use? Wide lenses.

These lenses are lenses wide angle wide perspective of ownership (“Up much”). Wide lenses generally defined focal length lenses have a smaller than 20 mm (As a smaller focal length, This greater angle).

Previously mentioned wide lenses produce distortions. Is there nothing to do? Yes, You can do a number of things (Apart from the choice of a wide lens with the smallest distortions). First of all, while shooting Be sure that the camera will be parallel to the floor. I use a tripod with two bubbles (One horizontal position and a second vertical) And takes care of the camera will be parallel to the floor (Or the sensor of the camera will be perpendicular to the floor). Additionally, After shooting I perform digital correction. But nevertheless there is distortion. Let's look at an example:

Note: The photos in this post I did for Perfecto kitchens.

You may say you do not see the above Distortion. Well, All straight lines, But there is another distortion. Wide lenses make things close to the lens appear larger than they are in reality and things that are far from the lens to look smaller than they really are. This is not necessarily a problem. vice versa, If we recognize this feature we can use it to our advantage. For example, if we want to stress the table, We can just get close to him. And if we want to reduce something, We can change the angle so that this would be far from the camera.

Here's another photo with a wide lens of the kitchen when I took a few meters back:

When I did the shoot up, I was told desirable to reduce the emphasis of the table. Changing the angle will not help in this case because the table still remain in the middle. You can move the table. We actually we moved it out of the frame. But the benefit of illustration in this post I want to show a different solution.

Adjacent to the kitchen and living room is located beyond the living room balcony. I went to the balcony and took away. Of course, a wide lens exchange standard lens and here's the kitchen photographic focal length 55mm:

Here is another photo from the balcony:

Normal focal length photographs can be seen in various proportions of those shots with a wide lens. If you look, for example, the relative size of the chair and watch see the photograph with the lens extension Clock size is about one third the size of the chair. on the contrary, Size medium focal length clock closer to half the size of the chair. As I mentioned earlier, This is not necessarily a problem. This feature should recognize and take advantage of our benefit.
