I can’t brain this. They look like miniatures.
someone explain this to me or i will stamp my feet and cry
Okay so I got a C in manual photography in school, so take this with a grain of salt but here’s what I remember about focal length of lenses.
So obvs a lot of the brains job isn’t as much to work properly as it is to fuck with us cause te true awesomeness of the universe is too great to understand. Focal length’s effect on perspective is part of this!
Focal lengths of camera lenses effect depth and perspective of the subject, specifically depth. That’s what the term DOF in photography means, “Depth of field”, speaking to how the photo’s focal point will be. See the blurry parts at the top of the gifs? That’s out of the DOF.
Also, I think they are using a technique called “compression distortion” which is prolly more in-depth to what I was saying, but yeah I got a C in that class XD
