In this Thursday Tip video, Heather Sasser talks about the differences in camera lenses and what kind of look they produce. Watch the video below.
When we show up on a video shoot, we come with many different lenses. Here’s just a couple of those. And the reason that we do that is because each lens produces a different look. For instance, right now, the lens that we’re using, you can see that it has a lot of space around me. You can see the background. It’s very distinguishable that I’m in the kitchen.
And this works great when the subject matter you’re talking about has to do with the background. But when it doesn’t, you can use a lens like this one. You’ll see I’m much tighter in the area behind me really disappears. You can’t tell where I am. To use the lens like this, you definitely have to have distance behind you to make it work.
And when you’re shooting in a small space, a wide-angle lens is key. Check it out. A standard lens versus a wide-angle lens. The room looks much different. Often, the lens choice comes down to personal preference and background. That’s why Video Envy always comes with many options.
