I decide on focal length in two ways. First, if I see something specific I’ll zoom in on the subject with only small variations in focal length. Second, if I see something in a landscape, such as, I’ll start with normal depth then zoom in on particular features. As I find interesting features I’ll zoom in even more.
I rarely take photos specifically for any challenge or post, I like to use photos I’ve taken over the years. We went to Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure Saturday so I took the opportunity to get some shots specifically for this challenge.
The first photo is a wide shot of the park. I like the interaction of the cultural landscape and the people, it gives a nice feel of the park. The second photo is zoomed in on the loop of the Rip Ride Rocket roller coaster. The last photo zooms in more focusing on the riders. I like the third because of the detail but also I like to challenge myself, to see if I can get a good shot of the riders in a specific place in the loop.
