35mm vs. 75mm

By In Photography

I was playing with my Leica M10-P and two different lenses this morning. The 35mm Voigtlander Ultron f2 and 75mm Voigtlander f1.5. Normally one associates a longer focal length with the photo being zoomed in. But you can also ‘zoom in’ by getting closer to your subject. There is a difference between the resulting images, though, because of the narrower field of view of the 75mm lens, the image is flattened.

Surprisingly, I like the 35mm viewpoint better for this type of shot. It gives dimension to the chair.
