Exercise: Standard Focal Length

To complement the wide angle and long focal lengths we are tasked with taking images of people at a standard focal length of 40mm o 500mm. This still involves taking images quite closeup, so hard for people unaware, but rewarding in the fact that the perspective is as it should be.

This exercise I found harder. I do not own a standard lens and I often find myself automatically zooming in and out without realizing. As such I didn't capture too many images on a day out in the sun at a fair recently in this range.

Of the 3 images shown here I really like the last one with the dog pulling away, it seems to have more going on with it. I had to be quick with the camera to capture this one at 28 mm with a 1.6 crop is 44mm.
