Today we'll talk a little bit about lenses in general and specific lens photography Interior / Architectural Photography. Is there such thing as a "lens for interior Design". 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 posts about photo interior design and architectural photography can be seen under הקטגוריה של צילום אדריכלי ועיצוב פנים.
עדשת Tilt-Shift, Or on behalf of the other lens distortion correction, It is a lens that allows additional adjustments beyond those that have the standard lenses. The Tilt-Shift lens lets you perform Tilt (changing the angle of one part from the lens to another part) and Shift (sliding one piece from the lens to another part).
I know it's pretty hard to understand the explanation in words, so here's a video from YouTube that demonstrates using the Tilt-Shift lens:
Why do you need such lenses? In architectural photography, you have to put large buildings in the frame, and in most cases there is no way to get too far back.. Therefore, there is no choice to take pictures using wide-angle 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 for construction and therefore their price usually begins from 8,000 NIS.. 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. Performed Dodge & Burn and other techniques, but could not align buildings. Today this nation can easily perform alignment and distortion correction.
Lens for photography interior design – wide
So if most of the pros do not Mstmim lens distortion correction, What do they use? Wide-angle Lenses.
These wide-angle lenses are lenses that have a wide perspective ("They take a lot"). Usually wide lenses are defined as lenses that have their focal length less than 20mm (the smaller the focal length, So the angle is larger).
Previously mentioned wide lenses produce distortions. Is there anything to do? Yes, You can do several things (except for a wide lens selection 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 for horizontal and second to vertical) and make sure the camera is parallel to the floor (or the camera's sensor 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 performed 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 shot with a wide lens of the same 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 I changed a wide lens for a regular lens and here is the photo of the same kitchen in the focal length of 55mm:
Here's 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.
In conclusion, What is covered in the lens or a lens-Interior, Distortions, How to get over it and how to overcome it if necessary, and how to utilize the distortions to our advantage.
