CAMERA OPTICS / MECHANICS

This forth week we will look at the ways the image is shaped by the camera’s controls and lens. In particular we will explore the way that lens selection and lens settings affect the sense of pictorial depth of the moving image.

  • How can we isolate a subject within the frame through use of aperture and/or focal length?
  • What can something that is “out of focus” reveal?
  • How can we manipulate space through the use of selective focus?
  • How do we slowly reveal a subject through use of focus? How does this alter the way we understand and relate to the image?
