Just to show how much a few seconds and shift in viewpoint can change your photo, look at these images:
Most people would assume that…
- The larger the aircraft, the more impressive
- The less perspective distortion, the better
I am not sure I agree with that. The top picture is a favourite, even though the aircraft is tiny. And while aircraft spotter sites insist on “straight” images, I much prefer the drama a wide lens gives you (bottom images).
This is not to say that I am right. What I mean is: cameras, and lenses, are powerful creative tools, and you should think about how you use them; try to use them in different ways; be creative; experiment, and follow your intuition.
